Therapeutic Recreation

Therapeutic Recreation has three purposes:  therapy, leisure education, and recreation participation.  Therapy is intended to enable a patient to function better physically, mentally, socially, and emotionally.  Leisure education exposes a patient to new leisure interests which may be continued at home or in the community.  Recreation participation is for pleasure and provides the patient opportunity to socialize with other patients.  Volunteer musicians perform a short concert almost every weekend for patients and their visitors.  Games, arts, and crafts are available for those who wish to take part in them.  Art and craft projects the patients complete may be taken home with the patient.
