The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services' latest revised Conditions of Participation place a stronger emphasis on person-centered care and resident preferences, a realm where activities serve as a core concept. However, current residents are more discerning than ever before and have different interests than they used to. Planning and designing new activities that fit diverse resident needs, all while keeping them active and engaged, is a major challenge for long-term care professionals.

The Big Book of Resident Activities, Second Edition outlines more than 100 specific activity ideas by target audience, timeframe, recommended group size, and cognitive function. No matter what the clinical condition or cognitive limitation, this book offers activities that suit each resident's distinct needs and interests. Tools and downloads for activity professionals include sample care plans and resident assessments, sample activity calendars, and sample press releases, posters, and letters to keep family members involved and boost your facility's reputation.

This resource also provides an overview of the new federal regulation updates that affect activity programs such as changes in resident assessment, Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement (QAPI) requirements, new requirements for staff, volunteer, and dementia training, and updated survey processes.
