Therapeutic Recreation Programs
The Neville Center’s Recreation Therapy team provides therapeutic recreation activities that meet each resident’s social, cognitive, physical, and spiritual needs. Therapeutic Recreation activities encourage residents into trying new things, creating new friendships, decreasing social isolation, and participating in their community. One crucial way our team determines each individual resident’s goals is by completing an assessment upon admission. Our team interviews each resident, discussing what their interests are, their daily routine at home, the role of family and friends, and their spiritual affiliation. The reason we ask about our residents’ daily routine at home is so we can try to maintain that same routine throughout their stay. We have found that by taking this element of their personal life into consideration, many residents have an easier time adjusting to their new environment at Neville Center.
Our recreation programs and activities are synthesized from our residents themselves through the forum of Resident Council which meets weekly. Here is a list of some of the recreation programs and activities we offer:
