Activity Kits are customizable tools that caregivers use to share more meaningful time with the person for whom they care.
You can think of a “Customized space & time Activity Kit” as a bag of tricks to help promote healthy benefits for older adults and their caregivers. It can be filled with games, activities, and ideas that promote social interaction, sensory stimulation, reminiscence and other healthy benefits.
The outcome is that visits together become a more positive experience for you and your loved one. These kits help with reconnecting and fostering positive and uplifting feelings.
Let space & time help you to create a personalized kit based on your individual interests, as well as train you to use the items in a therapeutic way. Kits can vary depending on diagnosis (Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s Disease, Heart Disease, etc.) and be very specialized.
These kits are also great for Home Health programs because they are designed to meet the needs of your clients. After receiving training from space & time on the use of the kits, you can walk into a respite situation feeling empowered to have a great experience with the care recipient. Caregivers can have peace of mind that their loved one is actively engaging in therapeutic activities designed to improve overall well-being.
For example, space & time has consulted with a Home Health program in Ithaca, New York to help them brainstorm items for kits. The agency ordered the recommended items and assembled the kits. Then space & time provided hands-on training with the Home Health Aides. The aides were supplied with plenty of ideas to help clients beat boredom, increase interaction and socialization and have a positive overall experience!

Have you ever considered tracking what you do in a given 24-hour period?
Have you ever felt there is not time enough in the day to do all that needs doing? Do you often feel there is no relief from responsibilities and obligations? Using a time diary approach, you can conduct a little self-research and find out more about how your time is spent. By doing so, you can gain insight and knowledge about your personal attitudes and beliefs toward leisure and what you can do to maximize your time. Successful time management is an important component of a more fulfilling and satisfying life in which you can enjoy every moment.
Time diaries are free and will be distributed by space & time electronically or in person. The normal consulting rate applies for time diary services. Services include showing you how to set up the study, answering questions you may have during the process, and helping you to analyze the results.
The time diary was developed by and used with permission from Dr. Geoffrey Godbey at the Pennsylvania State University.
