About ADN

-Created by an Activity Director, for an Activity Director-

OUR ROOTS

In 1996, Activity Directors Network was created as a way to help Activity Directors save time developing their calendars and newsletter so that more time could be spent where it counts…with the residents. It wasn’t until 2006 that Activity Directors Network began selling memberships and the classroom was created to offer online education for those that couldn’t find it near by or simply preferred to do things from home. Since then ADN has become the leader in activity training and has had the honor of helping Activity Directors from all over the world. In 2015, we proudly received the NCCAP Award of Excellence for our contributions to the activity field. The Network has grown to include Activity Directors and instructors from all walks of life that want to make a difference for residents everywhere.

Our Mission

Activity Directors Network strives to bring the best activity professionals in the field together to collaborate and offer a top notch education to those we serve. Our mission is to enhance the lives of residents through standardization of care and love centered education. We believe the best education comes from experience and the love created between the Activity Director and their residents. It is this hard earned wisdom that we wish to incorporate into everything we do. Won’t you help us?
