Beginning the first weekend in August, we are introducing our weekend activities program. We’ll now have activities seven days a week! You’ll see the added activities on this month’s calendar. This new program will also allow our Life Enrichment department to meet with more residents for individual activities each week. We look forward to providing more activities for our residents and creating a more engaging activities program.

Beginning in August, she will be doing group sessions with our Assisted Living and Personal Care residents every week.
