There is so much more to do than Bingo! Although many residents enjoy Bingo, our therapeutic activities departments provide many other recreational and therapeutic opportunities planned with each resident's interests and needs in mind. When new residents arrive in our homes, the director of therapeutic activities speaks with them to learn about their hobbies, interests and levels of functioning. Meaningful activities are then planned to meet those needs.
We offer a variety of large group, small group or individual activities daily, including exercise, socials, outings and movies. Many residents enjoy our expressive art sessions and reminiscence groups. Theme luncheons, cooking clubs, gardening clubs and card games offer something for everyone. Calendars of events are distributed monthly to residents. Our activities staff visits with each resident several times a week. Visits may include mail delivery, a bookmobile, a shopping cart, a sensory cart or a friendly chat. All holidays are celebrated with special festivities. Parties are held for special occasions, including a monthly birthday party.
