Activities Are a Critical Element of Life in Senior Communities – as told by Healthcare News

Healthcare News (HCN) recently shared an article on Kimball Farms and the importance of our Life Enrichment Program (LEP). In the article, Heidi Cornwell, Marketing and Sales Director at Kimball Farms, discusses the positive impact activities and socialization have in a continuing care retirement community (CCRC) and how our team continues to creatively engage residents in meaningful ways.

“Most facilities make sure they cover five key areas when planning an activities calendar: gross motor skills, socialization, self-care, sensory, and memory. Specific activities are usually modified to fit a particular setting to help everyone keep moving and engaging as part of their daily routine. The activities our residents take part in are all geared to keeping these skills a part of their everyday life. When they begin to struggle with a skill, we step in and help them find a different way to succeed.”
