Activities are planned with a focus on stimulating brain function and supporting overall health & well‐being.
Activities can include musical entertainment which encourages dancing and/or singing, games, baking, exercise, bingo, woodworking, and pet therapy just to name a few. Quiet times to rest, and relax are part of each day.
