Frequently Asked Questions
You are welcome to visit 24 hours a day. Please call in advance for after-hours visits to ensure access.
How do I find out about the activities provided for the resident?
We strive to create social programs and individualized activities to match the capabilities and needs of each resident. This also has a powerful impact on the healing process of those residents involved in some type of rehabilitation. Specific activities include active resident councils, musical performances, current events, reading the newspaper, singing exercises, fitness activities, stretching exercises, religious opportunities, outside entertainment, games, trivia, history, and volunteer involvement. We also strongly encourage families to participate with the residents in various activities.
A monthly calendar is posted to keep residents informed of upcoming events. We always welcome friends and families to visit and attend special events.
