The one thing that unites all Activity Professionals is that they play a key role in making a difference in the quality and dignity of the lives of those they are serving. All Activity Processionals need to be adaptable to the ever-changing needs, interests, demands and strengths of the residents they serve. The programs and activities we provide as professionals must also be adaptable.
