RAP Member Getting to Know You Survey:

 

Name:    Karla Hale

Facility:   Rotary Adult Daycare Center

How long have you been working in Activites?  30 Years

What is you and your residents favorite activity?  “Grooving to the Music” (daily exercise group) Our clients love our morning exercise program. Watching them dance and have a good time while exercising is great, especially when the low functioning can take part in a large group activity.

What is your favorite work moment?  My favorite moment is connecting with a client that has dementia and you know by the warm smile they give you that today is a good day.

What is your biggest work challenge? “Having to do more with less” This can be very challenging. It’s difficult to tap into community resources because everyone is going after the same dollars. 

How do you unwind? Hobbies? Outside interests? Travel, cooking, shopping. Watching a good Lifetime movie is always relaxing.

Name:      Mary Ramsey

Facility:      Good Samaritan Society of Arlington

How long have you been working in Activites?   3 years

What is you and your residents favorite activity? Art Therapy and Bible Study

What is your favorite work moment?    Love being able to comfort the residents.

What is your biggest work challenge?  Time management—trying to get all my  “office/administration” work done and being available to my staff.

How do you unwind? Hobbies? Outside interests?    This is a real problem for me.  When I get home I am tired and usually watch TV which is not my preference for unwinding but I don’t have the energy to garden or paint or knit.  My husband is a pastor and so we are tied down on the weekends as well.  We lead very boring lives.  : (
