Who Said Therapy Was Boring?

November 29, 2017

Recreational Therapy can be so much more than a boring Occupational room. Its main purpose is to develop all skills such as physical, social, mental, and emotional. Seniors do better when they engage in life, and find happiness and purpose. Going to movies, attending parties, playing Wii games, swimming, walking in a club, dancing. There can be something for everyone in therapy, depending on the seniors interest. Art, animal, music, even simply getting together to play some cards or chess.
