With several hours per day of leisure time (free time) to fill as they choose, recreation becomes a very vital part of each patient's day. The recreation department strives to offer exciting, therapeutic activities daily, which can be enjoyed in a group situation or on an individual basis. These events are planned to meet the physical, social, emotional, spiritual, and educational needs of all patients while also providing an atmosphere of fun and enjoyment.
Here are some of our regular events:
Sensory Stimulation Programs
These programs are provided for special groups of patients needing the benefit of recreation with a mental or sensory intent. These include Reminiscent Therapy groups, which serve to enhance self-esteem, increase enjoyment of social relations, and to create and preserve a feeling of personal significance.
In-Room Recreation Program
Our Recreation Department strives to meet the recreation interests and needs of all patients residing in our center. We take a special interest in those patients who are unable to participate in group situations due to ambulating problems, physical, or mental limitations. Independent activity boxes, which house many materials and supplies for patients to engage in independent activities of choice, are available on each station. The In-Room Activity Program allows patients to participate in recreational activities such as:
To meet the spiritual needs of patients, religious services are offered on the weekends along with Bible Studies, Sacred Concerts, and mid-week Devotion during the week. Through fellowship and faith, the aged meet problems of advanced years with more tranquility and less fear, finding strengthened resources in their religion. We have a volunteer pastor whom visits often to provide one on one visits with our residents
We offer a room in our facility that may be reserved by family members and friends of our patients for private lunches, dinners, and parties. Just contact the recreation staff for details and arrangements.
Holidays such as Valentines, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas, etc are celebrated at our center with decorations and reminders, which bring color and excitement into the lives of the patients and staff alike. Monthly birthday parties are held to celebrate our residents and NHC partners. Families are invited to join in the fun!
Our recreation staff is also active in coordinating other special occasions that patients and partners actively participate in regularly. Our medically able patients are encouraged to attend outside events with family and friends at leisure.
