Take time before the full craziness of the holiday schedule begins to get yourself prepared
Have a plan for the next few months, but be flexible enough to change them
Adjust your attitude from overwhelmed to “I can do this,” and see the opportunities for enhancing
your resident’s lives
Note your community’s traditions for the upcoming holidays, but find new and exciting ways to
freshen them up.
Keep your volunteers happy and get help from them and from co-workers when you are overwhelmed… and there will be days, no matter how prepared you are
Fill your life outside of work with people who you enjoy being with. Do fun stuff for yourself! Don’t stop planning when it comes to your leisure needs.
Understand that you will never please all the people all of the time. Do your best every day and have no regrets when you walk out of your community at the end of the day
Live, love, laugh, and have a happy Thanksgiving!
