The mission of the Activity Team at The Lodge is to provide a comprehensive program of activities and events that meet our residents’ recreational, social, intellectual, creative, and spiritual needs. We adhere to the philosophy that we all age more successfully if we are active, filled with a sense of purpose, and surrounded by a supportive network of peers, family, and staff.
Our program caters to the wide range of interest found among our resident population, from foreign language classes and philosophy, to art workshops, meditation, and game clubs. Live music is scheduled daily, along with weekly outings to popular area restaurants and cultural attractions.
If you are caring for an aging loved one and are in need of temporary assistance, consider Respite Care – a short-term stay at The Lodge.
Respite Care is an ideal situation for family members or caregivers who are temporarily unable to care for their loved ones. Respite Care offers caregivers and family members time to address other obligations (such as business trips and vacations) and offer seniors in need of extra assistance following a hospital stay or during an illness the help they need allowing them to recover in a beautiful and safe setting. Many of our residents also begin their long-term stay with us after receiving Respite Care; a short-term stay allows them an evaluation period of our facility before deciding if we are the right choice for them. Standard respite care is for a minimum of one week and a maximum of one month, and includes all the amenities of assisted living at each specific facility. At all AEC facilities this is a minimum of:
- A room with private restroom,
- 3 meals and 2 snacks daily,
- Medication management,
- Daily oversight by a licensed nurse,
- Assistance with bathing,
- Weekly housekeeping and linen service,
- Participation in group exercise and wellness classes, and
- Daily in-house entertainment and activities.
When recovering from surgery or a serious illness it can take effort to get back in to shape. To assist in the recovery process, we have designed the Re-fit Program that combines a respite length stay with Physical, Occupational, or Speech Therapy and personal training to help get you back in shape sooner, it includes the services of respite care, plus:
- Evaluation by a Physical Therapist upon admission
- One Physical, Occupational, or Speech Therapy session each week
- Two personal training sessions a week
- Escort to and from meals and activities
