Living An Enriched Life
Life is defined as, "the sequence of physical and mental experiences that make up the existence of an individual". The enjoyment of life is realized through the normalcy of an active enriched life. Our Life Enrichment program provides the opportunity for our residents to explore one's own self directed interests through the participation in club activities. Club activities are created through personal interviews with residents and families to guide development of clubs that encourage social participation, purposeful activities and positive interactions. Our creative team organizes each club activity with residents, families and volunteers. You are invited and we encourage our families to participate and become active members of our community as well.
