At CNRC, our Therapeutic Recreation Department consists of an enthusiastic,
passionate group of individuals. We offer a monthly calendar of activities meant to
cultivate the individual skill, talent, and ability of our residents, while promoting their
highest quality of life. Our programs focus on physical, creative, cognitive, spiritual,
social, and sensory therapies. The dedicated staff run multiple, diverse activities every
day, 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 unable to or who may choose to engage in primarily independent
recreation. All Therapeutic Recreation activities are designed to offer stimulation,
structure, entertainment and enrichment.
Upon admission to our facility, the Therapeutic Recreation staff conducts an
assessment and an interview. This helps enable us to create a plan of care centered on
the residents past and current recreation and leisure interests. When a resident is
placed in our care, the Therapeutic Recreation Department assists them with
adjustment to life at CNRC by introducing them 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.
In order to foster a strong volunteer force, at CNRC we work closely with our local
colleges, churches, community organizations, individuals and schools. During any given
day we may have a variety of groups and visitors; musicians, dancers, pet visits, youth,
scouting groups and religious services here to enhance our programming.
