I Can Help
|Description : -The goal of this program is to promote orientation, acceptance, and conformity, close and diffuse relationships, independence, and productivity, by Sharon Ray-Cassedy|
|Materials : A bus to transport the residents
emergency forms to carry on the bus for each resident
One Activity Staff to go with them
|Instructions : Have a sign-up sheet available for those residents who want to participate in this tutoring program.
Once you have your list of volunteers, then you can formulate your activity to accommodate if need be.
Call a grade school, middle school or high school and see about setting up a time, about 3 hours a week for tutoring different students who need help.
Tell the school that you have residents who want to volunteer there to help.
You hardly ever get them to turn this down.
They (the school) will assist you in scheduling a time and place at the school for the tutoring to take place.
The 3.5 hours includes travel time and tutoring more than one student possibly.
Once the session is over then have the bus return the residents back to your facility.
Check on those who receive medication and make sure that they do not miss a dose while on this activity.
You should prepare for those residents who are wheel chaired bound, and make sure that the activity is wheel chair accessible.
The one thing for us to remember about community integration is that it involves relationships with others, independence in one's living situation and activities to fill one's time.
This activity fills all of this it provides a positive relationship with others, a kind of independence for the resident, and activity to fill their time.
