Activities

We understand that meaningful activities are essential for fulfilling lives daily. The activity department consists of four directors who plan and organize all activities to ensure they meet the individual needs of each resident. Invaluable support is provided by our community of volunteers.

Throughout the year we host many group activities, such as our Christmas party, Mother’s Day tea, the very popular Spring Fling, and family Barbeque to name a few. Regular church services, reading group, craft club, and birthday parties are also part of the schedule.

Residents love the opportunity to hop on the Mill Cove bus or van for shopping, trips to the orchards in the fall, summer picnics, or a visit to the Fair or Market.

To provide the most enriching and engaging experience for our residents, Activity Directors complete a thorough life history assessment in the first few weeks of arrival.
