Good evening TR friends – I’ve got another jam-packed list for you again this month!
Quite often when I come across interesting or relevant information, I email it to myself, thinking, ‘I’ll add that to the blog later’… But when it comes time to add a new post or information, I often struggle with organization and maintaining fresh, up to date, dynamic content. Any bloggers out there who want to offer some friendly advice, I’m all ears!
So today, I’m going to post a LONG one in an attempt to clean out my inbox!
1) I don’t have to be musically inclined in order to use aspects of music in care.
2) Every caregiver, professional or not, can implement aspects of music during care (see point #1).
Out of the many, these were my two biggest take-homes from the Level One session.
Perhaps because most of my experience in recreation therapy has been in long-term care, this topic really brought to light some very simple adjustments that we can make to really start to improve person-centred care in LTC and really all continuing care.
Improving Person-Centred Care During Mealtimes in LTC is a fantastic presentation by Dr. Sienna Caspar, PhD, CTRS. While you’re at it, check out the Brain Xchange, an incredible resource for knowledge!
