As a Recreation Assistant at Troy Hills, I engage over one hundred residents in both physically and mentally stimulating activities. I communicate with each individual and assist them with their daily activities. During an activity, I direct a group of ten to twenty residents; I rebuilt a game for each resident, move around, and encourage everyone to be active for one hour. I also help residents participate in "Stand and Stretch," where I encourage those confined to their wheelchairs to stretch their bodies.
As a Recreation Assistant, I also supervise a small group of five to seven low-functioning residents in Sensory Stimulation Stations. Here, I read to, talk to, and provide aromatherapy for residents who can no longer communicate.
