This manual was designed to assist the Recreation Director or Consultant in providing a thorough assessment of the facility’s Recreation Department in Long-Term Care facilities. The various audit tools may be utilized for quarterly Quality Assurance projects, annual review of the department, survey-preparations, or spontaneous assessment. It is also a great tool for Recreation Consultants or Directors that are new to a particular facility. These tools will assist the evaluator in determining the strengths and weakness of the department while providing the necessary information to assist in the formation of a corrective plan of action.
This incredible manual includes tools to assess the following: an overview of the Recreation Department, recreation environment, supplies and equipment, activity calendars, resident council, recreation employees and volunteers, activity evaluations, population analysis, resident activity survey, resident interest analysis, resident quality of life continuum of care, and population quality of life audit. Also included are two bonus materials: Leader Facilitation Guidelines for Group Activities and List of Activities by Category.
