February is Therapeutic Recreation Month!!!!!
Therapeutic Recreation (TR) is a profession, which recognizes leisure, recreation and play as integral components of quality of life. Service is provided to individuals who have physical, mental, social or emotional limitations that impact their ability to engage in meaningful leisure experiences. TR is directed toward improving basic functioning, education and opportunities for leisure. These processes support the individual to maximize their independence in leisure, optimal health and have the most quality of life.
Retirement Concepts Communities have trained TR Practitioners who are skilled in developing care plans and facilitating recreation programs with specific outcomes to enhance quality of life. Our Practitioners work with residents and their loved ones to set goals, develop health plans and work to achieve their goals which ultimately helps them to lead a fulfilling life in our communities. We offer recreation programs that are researched for effectiveness and utilize best-practice techniques, with focus on the physical, social, emotional, intellectual and spiritual strengths and needs of our residents and engage them in fun and meaningful ways.
