Therapeutic Recreation refers to the use of recreation and leisure activities to provide a therapeutic and beneficial experience for the participant. This unique approach is based on the belief that participating in leisure and recreational activities can have a positive impact on an individual’s health, well-being and quality of life.
Our Recreation Therapist creates unique program plans for our clients that includes activities the individual enjoys or has always wanted to try. We help implement these activities by providing all the necessary equipment and working with the client step-by-step. These activities can range from an afternoon of painting, playing cards or even a round of golf at the golf course.
The goal of therapeutic recreation is to provide opportunities for seniors to engage in activities that they enjoy and that promote physical, emotional, and social well-being.
- Stimulation of memory, attention, and concentration
- Maintain or improve coordination, balance, and reflexes
- Stress relief
- Improved mood and reduced feelings of boredom
- Social interaction
Our recreational activities are intended to provide physical and emotional benefits to our clients in a way that is fun and exciting. The activities are designed to promote social interaction, stimulate cognitive functioning, and improve physical health. New program plans are created for our clients every month, and can be adapted to accommodate the client’s needs as they change.
