Activity planning is one of the biggest initiatives for your staff each and every week. Planning and scheduling can be very time consuming. With so many types of activities throughout any given day, staying organized can be very difficult. Without the proper tools and resources to manage activities with ease, activity directors may lack time necessary for other responsibilities such as resident care or staff management.

With Quiltt, we’ve made it easy to schedule and plan your monthly activity calendars. With an easy to use command center, your staff can easily schedule activities to keep your residents and their loved ones updated and informed at all times. 

Quiltt makes activity planning easy

  • Calendar views: View the calendar by month, week, or day to spot gaps and ensure a wide range of activities for residents to choose from. 
  • Holidays: We’ve added all common holidays to the calendar to ensure special days can include special activities.
  • Repeating events: Schedule regularly repeating events (e.g. morning exercise).  Can set events to repeat daily, weekly, monthly, annually, or even set your own custom recurrence patterns.
  • Printing: Quickly and easily print (or save to PDF).  Select the desired paper size (letter, legal, or tabloid) and orientation (landscape or portrait).
  • Activity Types: Whether state regulations or management preference, ensuring a diverse range of activities is essential for encouraging participation, but doing so requires more time to plan.  By assigning unique colors to each type of activity, Activity Directors can easily see where the calendar may need more activities of one type or another. 
  • Visually engaging: Associate an image with each calendar event for a more visually engaging experience for residents and family members with viewing the event calendar on digital signage, in-room displays, and on a community-specific mobile app.

"We've been able to collaborate with our new partners to improve upon the activity planning feature", said Quiltt CEO, Freddie Peyerl. "Clearly there were some much needed improvements necessary for the competing products out there and we're glad we've been able to step in and properly fill the void."

We understand resident care is your top priority and therefore we’ve developed Quiltt to make your work as operationally efficient as possible. Check out the below calendar example.

We also realize it’s just as important to keep your residents informed as it is their families and loved ones. With the Quiltt mobile app, families of residents can stay informed in real time. No emails or website updates necessary as mobile app users will have access to any and all activity calendars. 

Quiltt’s activity calendar feature is just one of the many great features Quiltt has to offer. We aim to support all your planning and communication needs. From activities and events, menu calendars and newsletters, Quiltt has your Senior Community covered.
