Great resource for enabling elders to write their life stories.  Free templates to download.  Can see this being an interesting 1-1 activity or something to do within small group or possibly an intergenerational program.

Innovative idea regarding keeping active!
Episcopal Homes of Minnesota and Xccent Fitness opened a new motion wellness gym for seniors that has a first-of-its-kind indoor play structure designed to reduce the risk of falls.

Debbie Hommel is the consummate professional who is a joy to work with and a pleasure to learn from. Since I first worked with her almost twenty-five years ago, I’ve witnessed hundreds, if not thousands of people benefit from her teaching and advice. Her vast and varied experience in the long-term care industry has earned her high marks and the utmost respect from activities professionals, administrators and executive directors alike, not only in the state of NJ, but nationwide. Bravo to her for her dedication and commitment to truly making a difference in the education and certification of those just entering the industry and also to those choosing to enhance their skills to move forward and upward!

Thank you Jerry for your kind words! It has been a journey which you have shared in the long term care world. I remember back to those first NJAPA conferences with the dance parties we used to have. I appreciate your support!

The absolute BEST teacher hands down. Debbie teaches everything in such a fun and powerful way. She has so much passion for what she does, and it shows every single day. I have learned so many great things being apart of her MEPAP 1 & 2 Class. She is the best in the buisness, and she truly brings so much great information to light. I wouldn't have done the class with anyone but her. FUN, INFORMATIONAL and INSPIRING. If you are looking to get certified as an activity professional, her Mepap Classes and her motivation will send you all the way!

Debbie is absolutely the best. I encourage everyone to take her class, go to a workshop, seminar, or hire her as a consultant. If you are a manager send your staff to a class, seminar, or workshop. You will not be disappointed in the skills she will teach you and them. She is nothing less than 5 STARS.
