Activity Director in a Long-Term Care Facility. Student Manual [and] Instructor Key.
Thomas, Letitia; Lanham, Geoffrey; Daily, Sandra
This curriculum for activity director in a long-term care facility consists of a student manual and instructor key. The student manual is designed to be used independently by students in secondary health occupations programs or by individuals receiving on-the-job training in a long-term care facility. A clinical site is needed for individuals to practice activity director skills and to demonstrate mastery of these skills. Introductory materials include a 46-item bibliography, and glossary. The manual is divided into six units: introduction to activity director in a long-term care facility, psychosocial needs of adults, interpersonal communication skills, assessment and evaluation, programming, and management. Units are further divided into one to seven lessons that contain lesson objectives, key terms, content information, illustrations, and activity sheets as appropriate for the content. Each unit has a written evaluation that should be taken after all lessons in the unit are studied. A unit checklist, located at the end of each unit, provides a method for keeping track of activity sheets and written unit evaluations to be completed in the unit. The written unit evaluations are included at the end of the manual. The instructor's key provides answers to the activity sheets and unit evaluations. (YLB)
