These programs focus on activities that encourage participation and nurture the special needs of these individuals.

My family member never was one to participate in a lot of group activities. How will I get him/her to attend? What do I do when my loved one says they are just fine at home alone and don't need day care?
Even people who were never particularly interested in group activities almost always adjust to the daily routines and benefit from the stimulation and opportunities for socialization. However, the staff respects the participant's right to observe an activity or to use our garden, quiet room and patio to retire for some quiet time.
