Hey hey hey, just wondering if any of you people who work in aged care facilities would like to kinda partner up with me and maybe start some kind of pen-pal sort thing? Just a thought! Between our clients I'm meaning.

G'day.
Am doing an assignment on people who have impaired abilities to partake in recreation due to bone diseases. What would a rec therapist do with a kid with rickets?

Does anyone else round here feel all partied out? I swear I have done about a million Christmas parties this year! Then there's the Christmas lights tour, the carol's service, the New Year's parties...It's been crazy, but I've been loving it. How good are our jobs?

WHat did you guys do?

Hey do you have internet access from your facility? Just curious, there is a great website www.senioract.com they have an awesome christmas card post card exchange club going on from LTC, CBRF's, Hospitals, Day programs ect. I don't remember if they had one from Toronto yet if your interested, my clients absolutely adore it, we've recieved 3 christmas cards, and 50 post cards, their are currently 130 places in the program.

It's nice to meet you! :)

Hello, my name is Heather and I'm an Adult Day Service Coordinator and do work with LTC, CBRF,and independent living. I've volunteered in recreation for people with other disabilities.

I have been doing things with the elderly as long as I can remember and absolutely enjoy the career. I am working on a Provisionally certified activity director from NCCAP. I have had numerous trainings on different programs and activities, and am in school for a COTA, and marketing.

Eventually I would like to open an Assisted living or Adult Day Service and attach it to a animal rescure.

I'm in the Wisconsin area and have been in the field as a worker going on 8 years.

Hello,

I was hoping you could give me some advice.

I would like to work with the elderly, but I'm not sure in what capacity. The options I've come up with are occupational therapy, physiotherapy, speech pathology and chaplaincy. I don't want to be a nurse. What does a rec therapist do?

Would you have any other suggestions?

Thank you very much.

So first question:
What study have you done and how long have you worked as a rec therapist and in what areas?

Ahh...that's better. Sorry about that.

Alright. Welcome to the Recreation Therapist's community. I thought it would be a good idea to start something like this up, coz it'd be a good way to help each other out, share ideas and resources; do a little networking, that sort of thing.

Thanks heaps for joining!
Belinda
