Our department focuses on engaging our residents in meaningful recreational activities that enhance their independence and quality of life. We offer a wide array of programs which appeal to each individual resident's interests.

Through our recreation programming, we ensure our residents' physical, emotional, social, intellectual and spiritual needs are being met. Recreation is more than just simply fun and games (although we do offer that as well); we help residents feel comfortable with who they are by attending to their emotional, spiritual, and physical needs. Our other services include a hair salon, phones, cable, mail and banking.
