An active and social lifestyle is more important than ever in helping seniors maintain a sharp mind, remain connected to the world around them, increase feelings of happiness, and develop a sense of belonging.
Sometimes a little extra companionship can ease the transition, up the celebration, and make all the difference when it comes to recreation. At Harbour View, we offer just that with a personalized program that has birthdays and holidays covered— and “just because” days, too.
You can choose from a wide variety of group activities. Everything from games to exercise classes to happy hours to community outings are offered. Our residents are encouraged to take part in activities right away. Choose two or three programs to attend early on – it’s a great way to meet your neighbors. Making acquaintances and friends can make a new residence feel like home and we always encourage our extended families to participate.
The Director of Recreation plans a monthly schedule of activities, programs and special events. Calendars are distributed to you monthly and are also posted on every resident unit. Our therapeutic recreation staff determines activity interest by completing an activities bio assessment for each new resident. This assessment is a tool, which staff utilizes to develop individualized programs for residents.
