Keeping Active Is Very Important
Studies have shown a direct correlation between the amount of activity and the quality and longevity of life. For those who suffer from memory loss and confusion, activity can help reduce anxiety and maintain higher levels of functioning.
We encourage our residents to be as active as they can be. Our activity program is designed to:
- Match personal abilities.
- Create enjoyment and energize.
- Provide social stimulation.
- Fulfill a purpose in the care plans.
We understand that some of our residents are more adventurous than others, so we encourage them to try new things and extend past their comfort zones. Other residents we know would rather keep busy doing things in which they feel most comfortable. Also, for those residents who happen to have limitations and special needs, we tailor many of our activities to allow them to join in.
We also realize that some people may choose to be left alone, especially seniors who are new to Newport Heights Manor that are struggling with change and new faces, so we are patient and let them adjust at their own pace. Usually, as their comfort level grows, so does their level of involvement.
