Engaging Activities

At Forest Ridge we want to ensure each resident and/or guest has a fulfilling journey during their stay. Our trained experts have put an emphasis on creating a diverse range of multi-sensory activities to enjoy. Our dynamic array of programs provide opportunities for active and passive participation in a group, one-on-one, individual, and/or family setting. By promoting and engaging in the residents’ personal talents, interests, abilities, and needs our goal is to:

  • Get active and moving
  • Stimulate the senses
  • Expand knowledge
  • Reduce stress
  • Provide comfort
  • Give support
  • Build relationships
  • Have fun & stay sharp!
