Why Recreation is the Real MVP at West PACE:
Our recreation team is not just about checklists and routines. At West PACE, we’re all about creating a community where innovation is the name of the game. Activities throughout the day focus on maintaining balance and motor skills, instilling confidence in one’s ability to live independently, and improving mental and emotional well-being!
Our adult day center participants never run short of things to do, and we’ve got a little something for everyone. Classics like bingo and karaoke? Check! But hold on, there’s more – we’re talking interactive Wii games, adventures and therapy utilizing virtual reality , and craft sessions that turn our seniors into artistic maestros. And because we believe in fitness with flair, we’ve got Jazzercise, chair tai -chi and even balloon volleyball matches in the afternoon. Exercise can be a party too, right?
Real Stories, Real Transformations:
Each week our recreation team sees the difference their energy and efforts make – participants going from “no thanks” to “heck yeah” with activities like Travel Talks and Hot Soup Riddle Jumble . It’s not just about games; it’s about building a tight-knit community where everyone’s a star. The laughter, the shared moments – that’s the secret sauce..
