Want free career or academic advice
from a professional?

I enjoy working with the elderly in a nursing home setting. My question is what career path in college should one take if one has to be an Activity Assistant.

An activity assistant is one who creates games, helps residents participate in socials, engage encouragement, etc.

Have an Answer?

Hello! You might want to look into a school that offer Therapeutic Recreation as a major. This is a wonderful and selfless career path you have chosen. I would also suggest looking for
volunteer opportunities at your local hospital and you might also want to look into the National Council for Therapeutic Recreation Certification because it can help you get into this field.
