Our 2019 manual, Developing a Community Life Program for Assisted Living, lays the foundation for creating a Community Life Program for your assisted living community. Offering guidance in deciding what programs to offer, the settings in which to offer these programs, and examples of programs for different acuity levels of residents. This program focuses on the three important ideas to remember when creating a community life program; offering the resident choice; creating a program that is delivered in a manner that preserves their dignity; and allowing them to promote their individuality. By focusing on a resident’s chronic conditions and need for assistance, whether due to physical or mental issues, our manual will offer suggestions to assist in the development of appropriate programs. Ideas and suggestions are offered for off campus senior activities, ranging from visiting local senior centers, volunteering as a mentor for young children, or even an evening away from campus for a movie and dinner. Focus is given to residents with dementia and Alzheimer’s, with examples of appropriate programs for the three levels of Alzheimer’s.
