Whether you are new to the field or a seasoned instructor, just brushing up reading this handbook will give you some basic steps in designing your activity calendar with the client-centered approach. My conversational style or writing will give you the feeling you are talking with an old friend. The resources were gathered through my learning experiences working in this field for the past twenty years. I became a state certified activities instructor and a certified nurses aid to better serve my clients. I learned early in my career that the client-centered approach is the best and most therapeutic method of planning activities. I hope this handbook will give the caregivers a starting point and let you know you are a very important part of the well-being of your client. You will give value to everyday events and have pride in your work. You will learn new and creative ways for developing your activity calendar and suggestions for budget-friendly activities.
