October In-House TV Calendar

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.

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.

October Chapters

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 Therapeutic Recreation Specialists (CTRS) 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.

What Residents Say

"In my two years at PPH, I’ve grown to like it very much. At first, I felt like a stranger and then as I began to talk to people, we increasingly became good friends. A way to meet people is to join clubs. I’m now part of the PPH Auxiliary. I love helping with their flea markets because you never know what you can find. Recently, I’ve joined an evening quilting class. I love that I can continue to enjoy my life outside of PPH while experiencing the offers here.….especially the pool! Everything is just so convenient.

– Lucille Hite, Independent Living resident

What Families Say

"My mom is sooo happy at PPH, I can’t even describe it in strong enough words. She’s met so many new friends and these ladies do EVERYTHING together! She sees Dad every day in Pathways, but can have her life too. She’s gone to so many activities and I think I’ve already been to Scoops with her at least 15 times. She loves the dining room and Bistro too. My sister, Ilene, and I are so delighted that Mom is happy.......Wow, it feels like Mom’s been there about 2 years—but it’s only 2 months!! That’s how comfortable and natural it feels for her – and for all of us.
