A Long Term Care residence is much more than just a building, it is a home. Activity professionals are challenged daily with making their residence home-like, while still maintaining their professional obligations to post daily activities and other important notices.
Importance of Date and Weather Boards
Knowledge of date and weather conditions is commonplace for most of us; however, this is more of a challenge for those living in long term care who don’t have ready access to this information. Date and Weather Boards help provide residents with two important aspects of their daily life: They help residents keep track of time and add to their independence. This is accomplished by instilling confidence in them by being able to find out the date and current weather conditions on their own, along with other information that would be of interest. Your residents will feel empowered knowing they can find out what they want and need to know, on their own. They will be more confident in their decisions and more self-assured when they don’t feel the need to ask others what is happening.
The information displayed on Date and Weather Boards helps prompt conversation. It provides a great opportunity to talk about dates and events, the changing seasons and the weather, which always provide lots of scope for conversation.
Providing Effective Communication
Organized communication is effective communication, which adds credibility to your message. This is important not only to your residents, but to their families and staff as well. MyActivityBoard’s easy-to-change date & weather system makes the ideal resident communication board.
