We are open 5 days a week (We have a 2 day minimum attendance requirement in order to provide a therapeutic environment.)  

Directions:


Windsor House offers a wide variety of therapeutic, self-affirming and age appropriate activities daily. All activities are adapted to encompass physical and cognitive abilities while focusing on our participant’s strengths and skills.


Cognitive/Sensory Stimulation

Cognitive/Sensory Stimulation

Group involvement in word games (hangman, category brainstorm, build a word), trivia, reminiscing, You be the Judge, etc. is complimented with smaller groups of current events, jigsaw puzzles, table games, dominoes, story time, and self- directed crossword/search a word.

A wireless tablet and computer time are available for those who want to search the web, listen to music or learn basic computer skills.

Our participants who require more sensorial stimulation are provided hand massages with aromatic lotions, guided in manual manipulation of varied textured items and involved in taste and smell remotivation groups in a smaller area to reduce over- stimulation

Exercise

Exercise

Our daily exercise program is specifically geared toward the older population. A rotating schedule including chair yoga, low impact walking, light weights and sitting stretches help our participants retain their strength and flexibility while increasing blood flow.

Group physical games like bowling, balloon volleyball, golf putt, target toss and horseshoes (to name a few) target both small and large muscle groups while promoting socializing and team work.

Groups of Specific Interest

Groups of Specific Interest

In additional to daily morning meeting, exercise and group physical games, Windsor House offers 3-4 smaller group activities in the course of the day reflecting the interests of our participants.

Cooking/Baking club, Just Us Guys, Ladies Beauty Group, Arts and Craft, Sewing Circle, Client Karaoke, Bingo, and Movie Matinee are just some of the rotating offerings on the activity calendar throughout the year.

Fun Stuff

All the Other Fun Stuff

Entertainers touting guitars, keyboards, accordions and the occasional violin help guide our participants to move through music, reminisce through song and celebrate the latest holidays every month

Certified therapeutic dogs visit twice a month giving unconditional affection. Intergenerational visits from college interns, junior high students, and boys/girls scouts help foster understanding and learning opportunities for both parties .

Occasional mini seminars on nutrition, safety in the house and healthy practices from area professionals help keep our participants aware of topics that are essential to their well- being. Finally, not a month goes by without acknowledging the birthday milestones in one group celebration.
