Activities…

Activities at Forest Haven Nursing Home are provided seven (7) days a week. We offer a variety of activities that spark excitement into the lives of our residents, whether they are in groups or receiving in room therapeutic activities. They are based on our residents’ capabilities, physical health, and behavioral status and of course, personal preference. We present activities that encourage our residents to create, communicate, reminisce, and celebrate as well as special activities to stimulate our younger population. The Activity Calendars are posted on each unit bulletin board, as well as given to our staff, residents and families.

Examples of a few activities are: Click here to view our monthly calendar.
