Life Enrichment means making life meaningful and enjoyable. Our staff at Homestead Health Center provide many group activities within the facility to keep people physically, mentally, and spiritually active. Exercise, bowling, bingo, music, daily devotions, and weekly Bible studies are just a few of the activities offered.
Life Enrichment also goes beyond the group activities provided. Individual life enrichment goals and activities are established based on individual preferences. These types of activities may include reading a good book, interacting with children from the local schools, participating in art projects, or other activities.
The Social Service department of Homestead Health Center helps address the psycho-social needs of the residents. Staff are trained in identifying issues such as depression and anxiety and work with the residents and families to address needs that have been identified.
The Social Service staff also assist residents in identifying quality of life indicators which meet the personal preferences and needs of residents. Additionally, they assist with plans for residents to return to the community. In-home service needs can be addressed with Social Services staff and they can assist in obtaining services.
