The Basic Theme
Is set by the American Health Care Association.
This week is the busiest of the year and activity directors
have to book entertainers early.
As an entertainer, I usually do from 2 to 3 jobs a day during that week.
I always get calls from ADs who waited too long and now are in a panic. I had booked all of nursing home week in August of the previous year. That should tell you something about the way entertainment bookings go.
Many facilities will have dining rooms and activity rooms redecorated on a daily basis, to coordinate with the theme of the day.
For some reason, they don't get a bonus in their pay for all that they have to do that week.
There are a lot of theme party ideas that you can find on the theme party page
Good luck and make sure that you have a lot of help and maybe some volunteers.
