Therapeutic Recreation/Activity Services serves both the Basic Care and the Skilled Nursing Units. Therapeutic Recreation (TR) is the use of recreation/leisure activities and interventions to facilitate changes in behavior based upon an identified need. This is accomplished by assisting the individual to develop and practice skills, as well as gain leisure knowledge, while promoting responsibility for a healthy and satisfying lifestyle. TR provides a comprehensive variety of services including therapy, leisure education and recreation participation. Therapy and Leisure Education are instrumental in improving and maintaining a persons physical, cognitive, emotional, social and spiritual functioning. Recreation participation activities are designed to meet the varied interests of the residents and are opportunities which the person voluntary chooses to participate based upon their interests.
The generosity and assistance of veterans service organizations, their auxiliaries, and numerous fraternal and community clubs, enable residents to enjoy recreation opportunities.
