Activities of Daily Living
To accommodate and bolster the morale of our residents, varied activities are tailored, and geared specifically for your loved one to have daily success. Our activities often will be individualized for resident's ability. Staff will often utilize skills used in a resident's former occupation, or draw on past interests and skills. Much activity is centered on basic domestic routines providing an environment of familiarity and accomplishment. Activities such as cards, board games, conversation cards, gardening, flower arrangement, and various arts and craft activities help promote creativity and help maintain effective motor skill. Our activities are designed to stimulate all senses, are always voluntary, and kept short to maximize effectiveness.
Along with personalized daily activities, our staff understands the importance of socialization. Therefore, each day group activities are planned. These activities range from stretch, Tai Chi, indoor/ outdoor games, classic movie nights/ group evening television, storybook reading, listening to popular music from our residents' era, and pet therapy (certified good citizen dogs only). Each day, activities both personal and social are scheduled and executed to create an environment of structure, safety, socialization, personal accomplishment, and fun!
Each month an outing is scheduled. Due to advancing Dementia or Alzheimer's disease, some of our residents are unable to participate in activities outside the home. However, for those who are, these outings include visits to parks, beach parks, museums, gardens, the zoo, the aquarium, the library, and Kahala Mall. To include those who are unable to leave Hale Nohea, every month we schedule a "Family Day". On this special day, Hale Nohea hires a professional entertainer to sing and dance for our residents and their families. It is a wonderful time for our families to enjoy, participate, and laugh in a fun filled afternoon with their loved one. Due to weather and various scheduled appointments, our activities calendar changes often. We will always update the families ahead of time and invite them to any planned outing and "Family Day". Outings are not limited to once a month. Only authorized persons may take the resident on outings away from Hale Nohea as frequently as desired.
