It is Joyful Healthcare Inc., policy that while consumers are in their care, active programming do take place. Active programming and watching TV are mutually exclusive. Consumers are not to come home and spend the afternoon watching TV., eat dinner, and spend the evening watching TV either within rooms or in the living room. TV is not to be used as a baby-sitter to give staff time off. Nor is it to be the leisure activity of choice. Consumers should learn that there are other leisure time activities that they may pursue. Teaching this lesson is the responsibility of each individual staff. Recreation, either individually or in groups should be planned for each consumer each week until the consumer becomes adept at making his own leisure time choices.
