Bee Hive Homes Assisted Living Activities Intern

Other

Bee Hive Homes Assisted Living Facility, Panama City

Posted on December 9, 2016

Below you will find a job description for the position available. Please contact Ashlyn at Bee Hive Homes of Lynn Haven if you have any further questions or would like to schedule an interview. Activities Assistant Program Requirements During the internship/fieldwork, the student will fill the role of Activities Assistant at Bee Hive Homes of Lynn Haven. During the first two months, the Activities Assistant will complete training and will assist the Activities Director in daily tasks and activities. After training is complete, the Activities Assistant will lead the activities program for the final months of the internship/fieldwork. This will be done under the supervision of the Home Manager and Administrator. The Activities Director will also be available to answer questions, create the calendar, and attend Resident Council Meeting. Central Goal: To enhance the quality of life and health of the residents at Bee Hive Homes Assisted Living by providing a variety of enjoyable and interesting activities, crafts, and social events tailored to their preferences. Each Bee Hive Homes Assisted Living facility has a census of just 16 residents. How Activities Make a Difference: A robust activities program helps mitigate many of the psychological concerns that come with transitioning to assisted living. Many seniors can feel as though they have nothing left to look forward to and that they have nothing left to contribute to society. Many are also sedentary, with little motivation to engage in daily activities. A sense of loneliness and loss could rob them of enthusiasm for life. These issues can also compound existing health problems. A strong activities program helps seniors stay active and social, develop friendships, provides opportunities to exercise and improve dexterity, and gives them something to look forward to each day. Through service opportunities it also allows them to contribute to good causes and feel they are still making a contribution. From crafts, decorating and Bible Study to Baker’s Club, Music Therapy and Guest Presentations, the activities program is part of the central aspect of daily life at the Bee Hive. State Requirements: Florida Statute requires a minimum of 2 hours per day, 6 days a week of activities. Bee Hive strives to conduct 2-3 hours per day 7 days a week. At Bee Hive Homes we like to have a scheduled activity in the morning and afternoon or evening lasting at least 1 hour each, in addition, a 30 minute group exercise should be held each day, and individual activities should be available. The state also requires a monthly resident council meeting be held to address any resident suggestions and give them the opportunity to help plan activities and offer feedback on previous events. A record of these meetings must be kept for state review. The activities calendar must be posted in a conspicuous place where the residents can see it. A copy of the Activities Calendar is to be filed or kept with meeting and other records in the Activities Binder. Job description: The Activities Assistant will learn to be the primary person to carry out daily activities in the Bee Hive Lynn Haven Home. The monthly activities calendar will be provided by the Activities Director in addition to a supplies list and activity description for each activity. It is up to the Activities Assistant to correspond with the Activities Director throughout each week. The Activities Assistant will work with other Direct Care Staff to personally invite all residents to all activities each day and continuously engage each resident during the Activity. The Activities Assistant will use the calendar as a guide to which activities to do each day and will provide all materials and instruction needed for weekend activities. Clarification: 1. The Activities Assistant leads the more complicated activities, and can and should bring other Caregivers in to assist residents as needed. The Activities Director will plan more simple activities for when the Activities Assistant will not be present, such as weekends. Those days without the Activities Assistant can be planned for movies, bean bag toss, Bible Study, or other group games that Caregivers can feel confident leading. 2. Maintain and organize the activity closet so other Direct Care Staff can readily locate items when the Activities Director is not available. 3. A shopping list for supplies needed for all activities for the month will be provided. It is the Activities Assistant’s responsibility to review the list for items that may already be in the activities closet then submit a final shopping list to management, of the items that need to be purchased. 4. Plan, prepare and complete an attractive display on the common area windows for each season and holiday. This display should provide an opportunity for the residents to do a craft or artwork to contribute. 5. Identify birthdays for each resident and employee, then make sure a card is signed, gift is purchased and birthday cake is available on the designated day, so we can celebrate! A current list of all resident and employee birthdays will be provided by the Activities Director. 6. The Activities Assistant should send photos taken during activities to the Activities Director. These photos will be posted twice weekly to the residents Facebook page. All guests who may be pictured should sign a photo release form before their pictures are taken during an activity. 7. Record in the ADL (Activities of Daily Living) for each resident if they participated or refused the activity each day. If there is a string of days with no participation, then let the Manager/Administrator know and either the Activities Director or another Caregiver should go and give some personal attention to that resident, either visiting for a bit, or reading to them, sitting outside with a Caregiver or another resident, etc. Some residents might want to only participate in activity but not exercise, and visa versa. 8. The Activities Assistant will be able to plan, coordinate and execute an event to fulfill part of your educational requirements. This will be done with the Activities Director as a resource and with approval from the Manager and Administrator. We look forward to this opportunity for you to learn this important and fun position! We offer this to provide development in an area of recreation that is sometimes overlooked, and which can be very rewarding.
