Activities

 

The Elms Activity Program is under the direction of a full-time Activity Director, 3 full-time Activity Therapists and 2 part-time Activity Therapists.

The Elms has been recognized as one of the premier facilities to offer specialized activity services to the Alzheimers and  Dementia population.  This program is designed, built, and staffed to serve the needs of these residents.  It is called SPARKLERS as the caring compassionate staff allow those we serve to shine.

 

 

 

The Activity Program is customized to each resident’s abilities to participate.  This includes music therapy, pet therapy, games, holiday celebrations, and family events.

The staff to resident ratio is much greater than most nursing facilities.  The staff is always using individual resident interest  and abilities to develop a meaningful program of activities.

 

A calendar of events is prepared each month and The Elms Highlights is prepared to keep the residents and their families informed of past, present and future events at The Elms.

Our residents enjoy movies with the use of our projector for big screen viewing, computer opportunities and assistance with Skype which allows loved ones who live at a distance to stay connected, and many outdoor opportunities in our beautiful courtyard.

 

What do you do with all this snow..... just ask Jane, Deb, Brenda, Theresa and Gracie.  Meet the newest member of our team - Elmo.  Although he wasn't with us very long - our residents did enjoy having him around and hope to see him next year.
