Highlights of Our Programs & Services
Our pastoral care staff attend to the emotional, social and spiritual needs of residents, patients, loved ones and staff with careful listening, empathy and confidentiality, which we hope will enrich the quality of life. They also bring comfort to the last days of residents and patients through compassionate, prayerful presence.
In addition to a regular celebration of Roman Catholic sacraments and rituals, we support each person’s spiritual tradition and each one’s right to nurture that tradition. We champion the importance of interdisciplinary collaboration among staff in sustaining the quality of care of our patients and residents. We recognize the sacredness of the bond of confidentiality in each of our interventions.
Mass is celebrated on Sunday and holidays, which can also be seen on room and facility TVs. Holy Communion is provided daily and Confession upon request.

Our therapeutic recreation department addresses the leisure-related needs of our residents. Recognizing that each person has physical, mental, emotional and spiritual needs that must be met and respected, we dedicate ourselves to fulfilling these needs with dignity through supportive programming. We accomplish this through the provision of professional programs and services that assist residents in eliminating barriers to leisure, developing leisure skills and attitudes, and optimizing leisure involvement.
We offer appealing, challenging, meaningful and feasible opportunities to stimulate resident involvement. This, in turn, contributes to the quality of life experienced by the resident.
We also create and provide opportunities for residents to expand their leisure lifestyle and learn new skills or become reacquainted with past involvements to encourage continued growth and development. We make provisions for all residents to assume leadership responsibilities, use their initiative in selecting and participating in activities, participate at his/her optimal level of functioning, and to progress at his/her own speed. Our programs are modified to assure successful experiences for each resident.
We provide an array of programs including cocktail hours, poker, bingo and crafts groups. We also have traditional and touchscreen computers with webcam capability.
