Regular Activities in the Home:
Daily Exercise and Stretching:  Every day, our caregivers lead our residents in a stretching and seated exercise session.  Usually after breakfast or after lunch, the caregivers assist the residents in stretching muscles, and moving body parts, often to fun and lively music.  Even residents who don’t think they want to participate are soon smiling and following along. 

Manicures and Pedicures – one or our weekly activities in the home is our “Mani-Pedi” day, where our caregivers cut and file fingernails and toenails and then the residents can choose which color polish they would like!
