7 Rules to Live by when Delegating
I must admit I was never very good at delegating. After all everyone had their own department and should not be expected to work in mine as well. I was afraid if I asked for help others would see me as incapable of doing my job. Lucky for me I've worked with a lot of wonderful people that always offered to help when there was a special event. I might have gone crazy if the offers had not been extended. I also realize that the events would not have been as successful if I had tried to do everything on my own. I have come to believe that EVERYONE benefits if we learn to work as a team, especially our residents and providing the best for our residents should always be our ultimate goal.

Hi, my name is Dymphna and I was named after an Irish Saint, she is the patron saint for the nervous, mentally ill and epileptics.
I worked as an Activity Assistant/Director in Nursing Homes for about 7 1/2 years. As an Activity Director I was to provide an ongoing program of activities designed to meet the interests, the physical, mental, and psychosocial well-being of
each resident. I tried my best to meet those needs, but felt limited by my own knowledge, skills and abilities. By this I mean, I am not an expert at anything in particular, my skills are limited when it comes to spirituality, party planning, crafts, fitness etc. etc. etc.
I recently found a world that I never knew existed, THE LAND OF BLOGS!!! WOW there are experts for EVERYTHING sharing their knowledge and ideas with others! I am starting my own blog to collect ideas for future use and to share with others that can use them as well.
