Our Residents LOVE Activities!

A dedicated team of activity professionals at Sarah Reed develops programs that improve and enhance the lives of our residents. Activities here are not only fun, but are effective in motivating and stimulating residents physically, mentally, and emotionally. Creative approaches to engage residents are implemented in both individual and group settings.

“Activities are very important to me because (laughing) I’m lazy! I would stay in my apartment all the time if it weren’t for activities! The activities keep me active mentally and physically — they are a necessity to me! It would be a pretty dull life if you didn’t do anything.”

— Jane Taylor
Apartment Resident

 

“I love music — it takes all the stress and worries away. My favorite activities are listening to Lois play the piano, sing-a-longs, and the Never 2 Late programs with Camille. I really enjoy the Special Entertainments when they have Country singers, and I love it when they put on the Carnivals a couple of times of year!”

— Max Alwens
Nursing Home Resident

 

“I enjoy Bingo, the pets coming to visit — I love dogs, especially when they give me a kiss! Activities builds me up, they help to relax me, absolutely HAPPY — they give everybody a smile!”

— Carole Smith

“The activity programs help to pass the time of day for me- keeps me active. We anticipate the get-togethers no matter what it is. We try to welcome the new residents and invite them to come to activities!”
