Integrity Healthcare of Wood River – Daily Life

Activities Calendar

Please make sure you take a look at our calendar of daily activities and special events!

Make sure you click the event or “see more” to view the detailed list of activities each day. You might want to plan a visit around a special event. Often times, your loved one will participate more actively if family members are present.

Did you know that our residents help plan our daily activities?  They sure do and they never hesitate to tell us what they like to do best! We plan lots of board games and BINGO, because they like BINGO!

We begin our days with exercise in order to stimulate and energize our big family! Lots of giggles and sometimes groans fill the room as they reach up to stretch their arms and wiggle their fingers!  We focus on doing things that our residents think are important, like the Pledge of Allegiance. No day begins without coffee and some chit chat! We fill the calendar with spiritual services, musical performances and visits from special people.

We invite you to stop by and get involved in what we do! Help us celebrate our daily life!

Visit at the time of activities and encourage your family member’s participation.

Take a favorite book along on your visit and read to your family member.

Write letters or note cards for your loved one. Help them stay in contact with their friends and family. Carry in letters or cards written to them, too.  Help them read those! 

If you take videos of children’s sports activities or school performances, take your computer or iPad on your visit and share that video!

Take along a favorite board game and play with your loved one.

Take a puzzle that you can complete in the length of your visit.

Music is stimulating, so take your iPod or a CD player and play some favorite songs.

If you have a child to take along, take craft projects that all of you can do. Painting sun catchers or stringing bead necklaces would be appropriate.

Use technology to connect with family members.  Take your laptop and Skype so your loved one can have a real time conversation with another family member!

Paint fingernails, brush hair or give hand massages to men and women.

Take your family member on a walk through the facility or outside, and talk about the things you see. Take time to visit the flower beds or other focal points.
