Therapeutic Recreation is a process that utilizes treatment, education, and recreation participation to help people with illnesses, disabilities and other conditions. Our recreation team members provide a variety of activities and opportunities to assist our residents in maintaining or improving their level of functioning and well-being. This includes sports, arts and crafts, music, wellness programs, games, religious programs and leisure education.

Therapeutic Recreation Benefits

  • Increased socialization
  • Elevated energy levels
  • Reduction in depression and feelings of boredom

We believe that social, spiritual and emotional well-being are just as important as physical well-being, and often one affects the other. Residents who participate in therapeutic recreation activities report feelings of increased health and decreased levels of stress. Whether in large group activities or one-on-one interventions, meaningful activities are an essential part of life.
