Nursing Home Residents participating in Activity

Meaningful activities must be available continually beyond individualized group programs.

Our wide range of activities encourages social interaction and the continued pursuit of lifelong interests.  Whether you choose to enjoy small intimate discussion with neighbors or enjoy the company of many in a concert with lively music, there truly is something for everyone.  We love including residents’ interests in our line-up of events and get-togethers! We feel it is our responsibility – and joy – to help people find purpose in daily activities with a combination of planned and spontaneous events.

Our goal is to provide activities that result in a sense of belonging and promote physical as well as emotional well-being. Our calendar includes musical entertainment, church programs, bingo, birthday parties, happy hour, fishing trips, festival trips, games, cards, crafts and more.

Whether you stay a short time or need long-term care, enjoy our on-site:

  • Library & library outreach
  • Dedicated activities room
  • Routine daily activities & spontaneous events
  • Aquarium
  • Flower & vegetable gardens
  • Beauty shop
  • Open-air courtyard
  • Chapel & church services
  • And so much more!
