josephine has lived at shady pines for three years. A month ago,Josephine close friend moved into high care.Josephine is sad,becoming more isolated and not happy to join in any activites. There are many activities run at the facility on a weekly basis that Josephine would beneit from,but she has not joined in any since arriving at shady pines.Your supervisor is keen for you to assist josephine
here is the question
What could you do to encourage josephine involvement in activites
Sit with Josephine and talk to her. Share your favorite activities with her, and ask her to share her favorite activities with you. And once she does, you can suggest some activities run at the facility that may be similar.
Who are you to tell a resident what will benefit her? Maybe Josephine prefers to be alone.
