Independent Living and Personal Care residents have monthly activities and events planned and provided by our Certified Activities Department staff. The primary goal is to plan activities that are fun for residents, while also promoting social integration and physical health. Below you will find a link to the monthly resident events and activities calendars for each level of care.
The Chapters Program, our secure Alzheimer’s and Memory Care unit, has specific activities planned monthly by a Certified Dementia Activity Coordinator. The goal of the planned activities is to enhance the resident’s sense of dignity and self-esteem by giving more purpose and meaning to their life.
Recreational therapy is defined as “a treatment service designed to restore, remediate and rehabilitate a person’s level of functioning and independence in life activities, to promote health and wellness as well as reduce or eliminate the activity limitations and restriction to participation in life situations caused by an illness or disabling condition” (American Therapeutic Recreation Association [ATRA], 2009).
Pathways, our Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, employs Certified Recreational Therapists (CRTS) who provide Recreation Therapy to all Pathways residents. Our Recreational therapists use a variety of educational, behavioral, recreational, and activity-oriented strategies with residents to enhance functional performance and improve positive lifestyle behaviors designed to increase independence, effective community participation, and well-being.
