Long Term Care

Increasing Participation in Long Term Care and Nursing Home Activities

As an activity professional in a Long Term Care or Nursing Home residence, you know how challenging it is to keep your residents engaged and active. MyActivityBoard recognized this and developed a series of activity boards designed to address your specific challenges.

Using the experience and knowledge gleaned through working with many activity professionals, the team at MyActivityBoard.com has developed a number of standard boards that meet the needs of most Long Term Care and Nursing Home residences. Our products have consistently proven to be effective in helping activity professionals improve the participation of residents in activities and help to build a close-knit community. Information is presented in an organized, appealing way that helps residents find whatever they need, effectively and efficiently. MyActivityBoard’s products have been designed to remove the clutter of outdated cork boards and the random posting of paper documents on walls or in elevators. All the required information is still relayed, but its elegant and appealing presentation ensures each home area of the residence feels less like an office and more like a home.

Long Term Care and Nursing Home residence dining presents unique challenges for posting menus because of multiple dining rooms and the myriad of regulatory requirements. MyActivityBoard’s series of menu boards are designed with these challenges top of mind. We developed each of them by working with dietary specialists to ensure an optimal resident dining experience.

Communication

Like many areas of life, communication is key in a Long Term Care or Nursing Home environment. Simplicity and clarity are imperative to ensure information is communicated effectively on a daily basis. MyActivityBoards offer activity professionals and food service staff the ability to post daily activities, monthly calendars, special events, and daily/weekly menus using a very simple and easy-to-use system that looks great and exudes the feeling of professionalism and organization.

We understand that communication extends beyond residents to families as well. Having a clean and professional communication system instills confidence in families who come to visit. Keeping them informed of what is happening in the community reassures them that their loved ones are getting involved and are being well taken care of.

Applications

There is no limit to the different applications for MyActivityBoards. To help you, we have developed a series of standard solutions based on our experience helping others. These standard solutions cover a range of applications that have been tried and tested over many years. Our standard boards offer a wide range of options, such as:

  • Activity Boards
  • Menu Boards
  • Date & Weather Boards
  • Resident Home Areas Boards
  • Large Calendars
  • Elevator Boards

In addition to our standard solutions, we create specialized boards for other applications (quality programs, staff/staffing boards, etc.), each one custom-designed to meet your individual needs and specifications.

Compliance

The regulatory requirements for Long Term Care mean a significant amount of information must be posted at all times. And, most of the time, this is a jumbled chaotic mess. MyActivityBoard’s series of compliance-based activity boards were developed to let you determine quickly and easily if you are in compliance. These easy-to-read boards ensure all information is posted clearly, in an organized way, readily available to residents, family members, and regulatory staff. You will be able to see right away if anything is missing, and inspection teams can quickly verify you have posted everything that’s needed.
