Every month an activity calendar is created with the goal of increasing physical activity, increasing sensory and mental stimulation, along with improving self-esteem through failure-free activities.
Activities are designed to use skills that our Residents already have. These activities focus Resident’s current abilities and strengths. Some of these activities may include folding laundry, singing old hymns, baking, doing crafts, and feeding the birds and squirrels.
Activities stimulate cognitive functioning. We include reality orientation (today is… the weather is… the season is…) music, word games, and reminiscing. Reminiscing activities may include our memory kits, looking through scrapbooks, and reading stories.
