Some interesting articles I found today about Activity Directors. Some are old. Maybe all of them are. But, they are still interesting and maybe have some ideas for you. Or maybe just might spark some discussion.

Personally I like the idea of having a day just for activity directors to have a chance to take care of themselves and be pampered. Maybe a time for activity directors to get to play the games and have someone else run them. That was the first of the links above. One place I worked the administrator brought in someone to do professional upper body massages once or twice a month...first come first serve. It was a nice stress reliever. That was for all the facility staff.

There are a couple blog posts about activity directors in the links too as well as one news article about how a libray was setting up a program to help out area activity directors get what they need from the library. Wouldn't that be nice if all libraries did something like that?
