Recreational Therapy (RT) utilizes a comprehensive, holistic approach improving individual physical, cognitive, and emotional well-being.
RT empowers clients by adapting therapeutic activities utilizing adaptive equipment, assistive technology, and facilitation techniques to instill a sense of freedom and control for optimal challenge.
Adults 50+ of all abilities are able to participate in fitness, leisure, and recreation programming.
With person centered care, we prioritize and integrate your preferences, routines, interests, and needs. We purposefully keep you at
the center of everything we do.
The pandemic has magnified the negative impact of isolation. RT integrates you into the community in a safe way, promoting meaningful participation in outdoor and community activities.
RT is more than fun and games. It is a goal-driven therapy that utilizes your interests to achieve your goals.
Therapy focused on what you CAN do.
empowering you through all dimensions of wellness
Mind, body, and spirit. The big three have been a wellness slogan for decades; however, "the body" has arguably been the #1 priority of the healthcare industry. The truth: recreational therapy is often the missing piece of how to empower the body by incorporating the mind and spirit.
The International Council on Active Aging (ICAA) promotes seven dimensions of wellness, illustrated on the left. These dimensions are complex and often function at varying levels. In fact, boredom and social isolation can exacerbate all dimensions.
Recreational therapists collect quantitative and qualitative data to understand the whole person. While we do value data, most importantly, we value and embrace person-centered care prioritizing your individual preferences and needs.
"You can't go back and change the
beginning, but you can start where
you are and change the ending."
