Today I’m sharing a wonderful example of people having fun at work. It involves a video produced by a group of residents and staff at the Golden Life senior living community in Canada. Check out this great spoof on Pharell Williams’ version of the song “Happy”. You can’t possibly watch it and stay in a bad mood!
Finding ways to have fun at the nursing home is so important and here’s why:
1. It Benefits Residents
- Adds variety and enjoyment to their days
- Alleviates boredom
- Builds positive relationships between residents and staff
2. It Benefits Employees
- Builds morale
- Helps them cope with stress
- Promotes social bonds
3. It Benefits The Facility
- Increases employee loyalty and job satisfaction
- Fosters creativity
- Promotes teamwork
I would love to hear what you’re doing to have fun at your nursing home. Please let me know in the comment section!
