We believe activities that revolve around the daily jobs and duties that one would do at home can enrich a resident’s quality of life.
We strive to encourage residents to participate in their own personal cares, as well as share in some of the cooking, cleaning, laundry, and other daily activities of our household.
Our Life Engagement Coordinator, our staff, volunteers and a variety of additional skilled professionals make up our life engagement program to provide meaningful activities to our residents. These activities and programs vary from group and individual music therapy sessions, massage therapy, physical and occupational group sessions, individual therapeutic art sessions, sensory activities, exercises, walks, gardening, picking flowers from the garden, outings, reading and much more. Volunteers provide our residents with therapeutic pet visits, intergenerational activities as well as musical performances.
The residents at Gianna Homes have several opportunities throughout the day to engage in structured activities, that being said, we are not a nursing home. We are a residential home and our home environment is set up to reflect just that.
