Activities theropist in nursing home

I got an offer for a job interview to work 10 hr days 4 days a week in a nursing home as an activities therapist. I have some experience in working for human services working with people who have disabilities and younger people. I have no real experience working in a nursing home. They said they could train me so that would be fine. However I would like it if someone could give me a good description of what the activities therapist does in a nursing home so that I'm not completely out of the loop. Also how much does it pay. I was told that I would have to work T-S from 8-6:30 and I'm a little nervous about the every Sat thing unless it is a decent pay.

I am not sure all of what they do. I did work in a nursing home for many years, but I was a nursing assistant. I know our activity director planned and carried out several activities for the day. There were some things that were regular stuff, like church services, BINGO, weekly singing, ect. They also had crafts throughout the month. And usually had some kind of a trip like to a mall or walmart, the zoo, even a potato  chip factory. She also did one on one visits with the ones who never got visitors, passed out the mail, and was in charge of the volunteers (candy stripers). I hope this helped some what. Every nursing home varies in how they operates. I have seen some really nice ones and then there is ones that I wouldn't leave a dead rat there.
