In addition to feeling better, for most of us a structured day is also an accomplished day. A day we enjoy living and in which we find fulfillment. And when our daily tasks and errands no longer fill our days it is imperative that a structured schedule of activities is implemented to maintain a sense of joy and accomplishment as well as physical strength and capabilities. It also affords us the opportunity for socialization and to foster new relationships with our peers.
Mercer Manor’s recreation department uses these ideas as it’s guiding principles to develop and implement a creative recreation schedule tailored to the individual needs of our residents. And to ensure all our residents find happiness and fulfillment during their stay in our community.
Our menus are planned by a qualified dietician ensuring all residents receive their required daily caloric intake to meet their specific medical needs. Therapeutic diets such as renal and diabetic diets as well as food in appropriate consistencies are prepared in accordance with physician and dietician orders.
