The ActivCare program of structured activities is designed to maintain the highest possible functioning level of each resident while enhancing their self-esteem. Research has shown that therapeutic activity programs have the potential to restore feelings of usefulness, sociability and the capacity to celebrate life. By focusing resident's energies on productive activities the reliance on behavior medication can be reduced or even eliminated. Routines are followed daily to develop familiarity.
The schedule is a balanced menu of quiet, memory-exercising activities, creative craft workshops and invigorating play that utilize large motor skills. In addition to indoor interactive activities, outdoor programming such as nature walks and gardening are incorporated.
ActivCare programs are themed and provide a sense of fun. Outings are scheduled to engage residents in local points of interest. And special social events that involve families and friends are planned regularly.
By engaging those with memory loss, ActivCare is devoted to enhancing life every day.
We would like to thank ActivCare and its staff for all the care and assistance given to our mother during her residence.
We always found the staff to be cheerful, cooperative and ready to help us at anytime. The facility was always clean, her room neat and tidy. She was always nicely dressed and groomed when we came to see her.
Again, thanks to you and all the staff for everything that was done for our mother to make her stay at ActivCare as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. We certainly know what a hard job it is to care for the elderly with Alzheimer's disease.
