Recreation Therapy

The Recreation Therapy Department provides a variety of programs to the residents in Aven Manor and Aven Cottages. Recreation therapy programs are provided seven days a week with day time and evening activities available. Programs are intended to enhance quality of life by providing opportunities that contribute to a healthier mind and body. Programs are also designed to assist people with physical, cognitive and social limitations make the most of their lives.

Recreation therapy programs are available at different locations throughout the building and a community connection is maintained in the form of community outings. The variety of programs offered provides each resident with the opportunity for physical activity, intellectual stimulation, creativity, socialization and spirituality.

AVENS has a great volunteer program. The involvement of our many volunteers permits individual interaction with residents enabling resident involvement, and provides for a more diversified program. Attached are description of available volunteer roles at AVENS (AVENS Volunteer Roles).
