Since 1996, this has been the site for activity ideas!
These links and ideas are intended for Activity Directors working with older adults in long-term care and adult day service settings.   

You can navigate through the pages of this site with the tabs above.

Site Created/ Maintained by Amy Shade, BS, ADC

I began this site in 1996 (on another server), and have been amazed at the
overwhelming response I've received.
Thanks to all of you for your support and kind comments!!
I truly believe that the more we share, the more our residents will benefit.
