Join in the fun!
Our Recreation department is responsible to help each individual develop positive leisure attitudes by offering innovative programs and therapeutic activities which not only adds years to life, but also adds life to years. Our activities and events are scheduled for patients 7 days a week. Our activity and day rooms are located on each unit where patients can gather to watch television, play board/card games, have social gatherings, or other events.
Special Events listed below.
Structured group activities are offered daily to help meet the physical, social, emotional, spiritual, and educational needs of patients residing in the center. All patients are encouraged to participate in events such as exercise class, cooking class, bingo, gardening, bookmobile, and much more!
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:
We invite everyone to join in these regular activities.
Sensory and Mental Stimulation Programs
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:
Our chapel (across from the dining room) is the location for worship services, singings, and Bible studies hosted by local churches throughout the week. While we encourage our patients to maintain communication and involvement with their local church and religious groups, we also have on-call chaplains to meet spiritual needs upon request. For your convenience, we make available a list of days/times of local worship services on tv/radio.
Holidays such as Valentines, Halloween, and Christmas are celebrated at our center with decorations and reminders, which bring color and excitement into the lives of the patients and staff alike. Families are invited to join in the fun!
We host multitude of other holiday and special events. These events are usually held in our Dining Room or Community Room. Our private dining room and larger community room are available for patients to reserve for private birthday parties or other family gatherings at our center.
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. We also schedule group outings during the summer months to local restaurants, Wal-Mart, Davy Crockett State Park, various road trips, and our annual visit to Lawrence County Fair.
