Activities on a Shoestring

Welcome! This Web site is dedicated to the Activities Professionals in Long Term Care that are constantly trying to obtain the "BEST" for their residents for the least amount of money. Activities budgets tend to be limited; we often have to STRETCH the dollars. The purpose of this Web site is to supply you with ideas and resources that will give your residents the activities with everything needed to make each program special and unique.

Exchange of Activities Ideas
It is with much regret that I have found it necessary to remove the message board. In the last few days, the x-rated spammers have been very busy posting new messages on the message board. I do not appreciate this imposition onto a professional website, and I will not subject any Activities Professional viewers to this trash. I encourage all Activities Professionals to network with others in your area and check out all of the Activities websites. I will do my best to update this website monthly, beginning in February 2009. Thank you all for supporting "Shoestrings" in the past and for your future support. God bless you as you seek ways to make life more meaningful for your residents! ..............................................................................................Brenda
