When we think about recreational activities, such as bingo and bowling, we tend to consider their contribution to our well-being primarily in terms of their enjoyment value. These benefits are particularly important for residents living in long-term care.
While the value of having fun should not be underrated, the potential benefits of recreation programming extend much further and include, emotional, cognitive and physical benefits.
Recreational activities are so vital to quality of life that trained therapeutic recreationists are an integral part of health care teams for seniors in rehabilitation, mental health, day care and long-term care settings.
