Arts & Entertainment

 

“Energy for Body, Mind, and Soul”

A vital program of recreation that stimulates residents cognitively, culturally, creatively, psychologically, spiritually, physically and promotes individual and group pleasure and social interaction.

Our Philosophy is Customer Focused!

• Need to be flexible to meet the needs of our Residents
• Must be engaging
• Over the top every time
• Make their day – every day!
• Customer service is the service we give that we are not obligated to give – it is what people appreciate the most
• The better our customer service, the more success we will enjoy
• To give real customer service, you must add service that cannot be bought with money
• Support teammates – continuously!
