Keeping you in the Know!

Here is a very important message update from Activity Director Rhonda Grey regarding the results of her Center's State Survey !

****************************************************************************

"We just completed our annual survey. I am happy to report that we were deficiency free for activities, but in my 19 years of working in Activities, my department has never been scrutinized to this degree. 

Please put the word out there that I really think they are focusing more on activities. My staff was questioned on their knowledge of their residents. Surveyors were focused on residents who do not attend activites, documentation of the residents participation in activities, particularly 1:1's, checked that the initial assessments were comprehensive and what do we do for our residents with mental retardation. They observed several group activities.

This year activities were truly under a microscope"

Region I Dinner Event-2 -A Continued Team Building Success! 

We are excited to share that Region I is on a continued mission to reach out and rebuild ! Members and prospective members met at the Lemon Leaf  Resturant in Chestertown, Md.  to discuss strategies, plans and simply get to know others in their profession!  This was the second dinner event and MACS State Board members have been diligently working to bring Professionals together from the Eastern Shore communities to build membership and promote education. Board President Beth Smith presented Creating Shadow Boxes which had the group brainstorming wonderful ideas to involve Residents, Families and Associates! There will be more planning meetings to come so stay tuned for more Region I updates, in the meantime, enjoy the pictures below from that event .
