The Therapeutic Recreation Department at CNRC offers a calendar of activities meant to foster the individual skills, talents, and abilities of our residents, as well as promoting their highest quality of life. Programs focus on physical, creative, cognitive, spiritual, social, and sensory therapies. The dedicated staff run multiple , diverse activities everyday, giving the residents a choice to attend an activity anywhere in the facility. The Therapeutic Recreation Department also offers one on one, in room activities for residents who are bed bound or residents who may choose not to engage in group activities. All Therapeutic Recreation activities are designed to offer stimulation, structure, entertainment and enrichment.
Upon admission to our facility, the Therapeutic Recreation staff conduct an assessment and interview each new resident to create a plan of care centered around their past and current interests. When a resident is placed in our care, the Therapeutic Recreation Department assists the resident with the adjustment to life at CNRC by introducing the resident to staff, volunteers, and peers with similar interests. It is important to us that each resident enjoys what Cayuga Nursing & Rehabilitation Center has to offer.
At CNRC we work closely with the local colleges and schools in our area to have a strong volunteer program. During any given day we may have a variety of groups and visitors; playing music, dance groups, pet visits, youth and scouting groups. CNRC is proud to be the venue for the Ithaca Community Orchestra to practice & offer seasonal concerts!
