Days at Page Robbins begin as early as 6:00 am, though clients are welcome to arrive later if needed. Breakfast is almost always prepared as a hot meal and is served from 8:00 – 8:45 am each day. Following breakfast, clients are reminded to use the restroom or are assisted with toileting. Then the day’s activities begin.
The morning may include an art or music class, some sort of exercise, a word search or a group crossword puzzle. On occasion, we create crafts or have some hands-on activity. Lunch is typically served at 11:30 am. A sample lunch menu could include baked salmon fillet, scalloped potatoes, green beans, roll and pound cake. After another restroom break, we enjoy some quiet time with relaxing music and allow for time to peruse magazines and picture books.
Early afternoon might include music, an art class, baking cookies, dice, dominoes, cards,arranging flowers or woodworking such as building a birdhouse. If the weather is nice, we sometimes enjoy time in our fenced backyard. After 3:00 pm, we work simple jigsaw puzzles, play table games such as dominoes or card games and enjoy recorded music. At 4:00 pm one of our capable care assistants leads a group activity. The Center remains open until 6:00 pm.
Every activity we offer is adult appropriate and success oriented. While we encourage our clients to participate in group activities, if they would prefer to read or look at a magazine, they certainly may do so. We divide our clients into smaller groups based on their cognitive function, so they will actively engage with people who are at a similar level.
