Grandview Lodge’s Recreation Program offers a wide range of activities to improve Resident’s emotional, social and cognitive well-being. The focus is to promote and maintain Resident’s abilities and our Recreationists offer a therapeutic approach to social and leisure well-being. There is a Recreationist in each of home units who plans and promotes both structured and independent activities. In each unit the home uses the Montessori (Dementiability principles) in developing programs for the cognitively impaired as well as adapting the environment and creating space for Residents to be creative and build from previous interests such as, our art studio or mechanics garage. We also have Sit To Be Fit and Laughter Yoga in the auditorium.
“Recreation’s purpose is not to kill time, but to make life; not to keep a person occupied, but to keep them refreshed; not to offer an escape from life, but to provide a discovery of life.” –Unknown
