Therapeutic Recreation

Quality of Life

Our therapeutic recreation team meets with every resident and their family to learn about their specific interests so activities are tailored to each resident’s preferences. We work to help our residents feel comfortable in their new surroundings and enjoy their days to the fullest.

Engaging in the Short Term

We have noted that residents who come in for a short stay tend to have one primary goal—come to Oceanside and return home as quickly as possible. We meet with our short-term residents to learn about hobbies they enjoy so that they are engaged and excited to participate in our community activities—which can help make their day go a little faster while they recover and rehabilitate.

Our Activities

Activities include movies, live entertainment, current events, fitness programs, virtual sports, and, of course, Bingo. We offer live entertainment weekly. Out-of-facility trips are scheduled often and include trips to restaurants, the movies, concerts at the local parks and the beach, picnics, Duck’s games, and museums. We also host theme parties at Oceanside, where we hold Italian nights, an Oktoberfest, and more.

Holiday celebrations are very important to our residents, and families are invited to participate.  Religious services and community groups provide for the religious and spiritual needs of our residents, no matter what their denomination.
