The purpose of the Therapeutic Recreation department is to develop and provide meaningful, individualized leisure interventions for residents including cognitive, physical, emotional, social, environmental, creative, cultural, and spiritual domains of wellbeing in order to improve and maintain quality of life.

Activity Calendar

Therapeutic Recreation staff provides treatment designed to rehabilitate residents to improve their functioning and independence and to reduce or eliminate the effects of illness or disability. Each week, the Therapeutic Recreation staff will provide residents with an Activity Calendar. This calendar will have information on programs that residents can attend for no extra cost. Each day’s activities will also be written on the dry erase board in the dining area. We provide a wide variety of activities to best meet each resident’s needs and we are always open to suggestions for new programs if residents or staff have ideas for new activities.

Each month we provide a variety of community outings, with the use of a wheelchair accessible van. These outings include visiting shopping facilities, restaurants, and other community resources. Eat-Ins provide residents with the opportunity to order food from a specific outside restaurant in place of their lunch. A list of the monthly Outings and Eat-Ins will be provided to residents at the beginning of each month. Some of these outings/eat-ins may cost money, and that information will be posted.
