All About US
A lot has changed for healthcare post Covid. Shortages in quality staff continues to be an issue for many of our healthcare facilities. How would I know? I am an L.P.N. and have experienced first hand!
In addition to my medical background and years of nursing experience, I have Art Therapy Certifications specializing in Geriatrics.
Combining both skillsets, nursing and crafting, I have created Fun Craft Activities For the Elderly!!AKA Fun C.A.F.E.! We bring the complete craft activity to your facility. You simply provide appropriate adequate space and I take care of the rest. Each craft activity will assist your facilities seniors in a variety of ways ranging from improved cognition and memory to ehancing dexterity and motor skills and MORE! Each activity comes with all supplies and materials, as well as an LPN instructor ( current compact license with AHA BLS/CPR) and an activity outline pinpointing what benefits your chosen craft provides to your residents.
How does Fun C.A.F.E. come to my facility?
The FUN can be brought to your facility simply by booking C.A.F.E. through our schduling app on this site. The available dates and times are listed on our calendar. The craft packages price is set based on a basic craft package for up to 30 people. Specialty crafts, specific themes or T-shirt making crafts are slightly higher. Every month there is a theme/concept, a holiday craft, a seasonal craft and a wearable craft. Some craft activities are always available and can be requested anytime of the year. Craft packages can also be customized to accomodate special occasions and celebrations. Please complete the contact form for a price quote on specialty custom projects.
We can come as often as 4 times monthly, once weekly, with a different activity. Each activity is scheduled in a 3 hour block. 2 hours for the specific class and 30 minutes before and after for set up, break down and clean up. Your facility is responsible for adequate space, tables and chairs to accomodate your residents. Based on the size package you choose all materials and supplies (scissors,glues,paints,etc.) for each C.A.F.E. particpant will be provided. Everything that is needed for your craft choice is included! A deposit is collected online at booking PER class. Discounts are offered for prepaying in full and contracting for monthly sessions of 4 (see pricing plans). We cannot book and hold your single event time block without deposit. The balance is due on the day of the facilities actual Fun C.A.F.E. event.
