Daily Activities

Join in the fun!

Our Recreation department is responsible to help each individual develop positive leisure attitudes by offering innovative programs and therapeutic activities which not only adds years to life, but also adds life to years. Our activities and events are scheduled for patients 7 days a week. Our activity and day rooms are located on each unit where patients can gather to watch television, play board/card games, have social gatherings, or other events.

Our 2015 Year-in-Review Newsletter has been recognized by the Missouri Health Care Association and received third place! Learn more.

With several hours per day of leisure time (free time) to fill as they choose, recreation becomes a very vital part of each patient's day. The recreation department strives to offer exciting, therapeutic activities daily, which can be enjoyed in a group situation or on an individual basis.

We invite everyone to join in these regular events:

  • bingo
  • games
  • musical performances
  • refreshment socials
  • reminiscence groups
  • craft classes

These events are planned to meet the physical, social, emotional, spiritual, and educational needs of all patients while also providing an atmosphere of fun and enjoyment.
