Besides recreational activities, entertainment outings can also be planned. Diversity in outings will keep residents from getting bored and may reduce negative behaviors.
Things to do can be found from a number of sources:
- Online searches
- Public Announcements
- Word of mouth
Often residents’ social life is limited, so when planning outings, invite the staff and residents from other homes. Sometimes family and non-disabled/mentally ill friends appreciate being invited to a recreational activity that the group home support staff will be responsible for the planning and preparation of the activity.
