(Editor’s note: This video was originally posted on Anthony’s blog on Monday.) Activity directors in nursing homes are a special group, but just like nursing homes some are better than others. Perhaps it has to do with training. More than likely, perhaps it has to do with whether they have a real affinity and love for seniors.
