Many people believe that enrolling their loved one into a nursing home is all doom and gloom. Also, many people believe that a nursing home is an unpleasant, unfriendly place where residents sit around all day doing absolutely nothing but to ponder on their memories during the lifetime until they fade away into the afterlife. We are here to tell you that’s not the case and we want to help you see the reality of an uplifting environment. What if we told you that when you enroll your loved one into a nursing home, not only do we provide regular, stimulating activities, but these activities may help to build our resident’s mental and physical well-being.
If you are looking to find a nursing home in New Rochelle for your loved one who is still capable in living a long, fulfilling life, we want to give you a few examples of nursing home activities we provide here at Glen Island Center for Nursing & Rehabilitation.
Music-Based Activities: We do provide Karaoke and Strolling Music sessions for our residents. Music has always been known to lift up one’s mood and spirit and we make sure we schedule our music sessions regularly.
Games: What better way to stimulate the mind by playing games such as chess, Pokeno, and Bingo. Of course, one-on-one games are great for encouraging closer relationships with our residents, and group games are also good for fostering a sense of community.
Outdoor Activities: We provide outdoor activities such as picnics, rise & shine stretches and taking strolls through our outdoor facilities. We also have volunteers who are readily available to help our residents with mobility issues who will need to get some fresh air, sunlight, and exercise on a regular basis.
Overall, our main goal and objective at Glen Island Center for Nursing & Rehabilitation are to keep our guests as happy and healthy as possible for as long as possible, both mentally and physically. The nursing home activities we provide here should not only be fun but to also enable our residents to form new relationships, develop new skills, and keep up with their fitness levels. We hope we fully explained the importance of nursing home activities for our present and future residents in our post.
