Seminar Description

Activity Professionals play a significant role in the lives of nursing home patients. It is important that they provide innovative and enjoyable activities that meet their patients’ needs. “State Approved Training for Activity Professionals” will provide participants with ideas to launch new programs and to refresh existing plans. Participants will get their creative juices flowing. Both new and experienced activity coordinators should plan to attend.

This 5-day program offers an in-depth study of resident and activity programming for their special needs. It will include a review of the MDS 3.0 and Section N and Care Planning Process for the Activity Director. This program is designed to prepare the participants to function ethically and effectively in the prevailing health care climate.
