Recreational, Therapeutic and Occupational Activities and Outings
Our residents look forward to the many activities, exercise programs and outings provided with the help of your donations. We are able to purchase specialized equipment, bring in entertainment, hold pub nights, have movie afternoons, fairs, barbeques, exercise programs, arts and crafts, and special outings.
Residents who are able to enjoy these activities have:
- Improved physical health, which helps reduce injury and fall-related injuries improving mobility, joint flexibility, agility, and balance to name a few.
- Improved cognitive function and emotional well-being as well as many positive outcomes including increased mental alertness, improved problem-solving, improved organizational skills and increased self-esteem.
- Improved socialization – many seniors are faced with feelings of frustration, anxiety, depression, loneliness and isolation. By providing these activities and outings, we are providing our residents with hope and companionship, something to look forward to and help develop the ability for self-advocacy.
