    Activity Directors plan, implement, and evaluate activities for nursing home residents. They design programs to encourage socialization, provide entertainment, relaxation, and fulfillment, and improve daily living skills. There are many types of facilities where Activity Directors work. Activity Directors can work in long-term care facilities, assisted living communities or adult day care programs. This training program introduces you to gerontology in a compassionate way that helps you understand seniors and know how to work with them. This program combines sound academics with an empathetic view of the lives of older people. Our program will help students understand the complex issues of social gerontology and aging by using a life course perspective that views aging as an unfolding and dynamic process. We will combine a conceptual/theoretical and practical focus that will enable students both to understand the aging process and to make connections between social definitions of age and their own present and future lives. In this program, students will learn the skills of a home health aide to allow for a better understanding of the environment in long-term care facilities, assisted living communities, and adult day care programs.
