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.
My family and I are exceedingly grateful to the proficient and compassionate staff of ActivCare for taking loving care of our dad and husband for eight years. No matter what time of day or night we would visit, the ever vigilant and caring staff were guiding, comforting, assisting, dancing, bowling, laughing or singing with Dad. The staff also helped our family to understand and accept Dad's ever-changing world and encouraged us to savor new kinds of joy and adventure with him.” —Daughter of ActivCare Resident
