Music to spark a better life for older adults and preschoolers


For many years, I was employed at skilled nursing facilities and assisted living facilities as an Activity Director.  I tried to provide the normal as well as the entertaining.  Here is a neat article about changes that are happening in nursing homes.  This excites me! http://www.chicagobreakingnews.com/2010/07/chicago-nursing-home-joins-flexibility-revolution.html

  1. Voting is well underway and the Eden Alternative idea “Refresh and transform 5 nursing homes located in PA, MT, MI and TN.” is now in 152nd place.

    Only the top 2 ideas with the most votes will receive a grant worth $250,000. There’s still time to let everyone know how important our idea is, and promotion is key to racking up votes.

    Remember, voting ends the last day of this month. Go to http://www.refresheverything.com/transform5nursinghomes

    More on the Eden Alternative go to http://www.edenalt.org.

    We can move nursing homes institutional model of care to homes where life is worth living together.
