Resident Activities

Providence Marianwood offers comprehensive therapeutic recreation activities and programs individualized to each resident and patient. Our programs, classes and activities are constantly evolving, incorporating both new and proven therapies to improve and maintain physical and social well being while honoring individual interests, preferences and choices. Activities, entertainment opportunities and meaningful, enriching individual and group activities are available to all Marianwood and include music, art, one-on-one visits, exercise programs, cooking, gardening and crafts to name a few.

All residents and patients have access to a shared computer with WiFi, internet, and email (personal email accounts set up on request), and a TV with VCRs, DVDs as well as Wii games and a Kinects system. You may also bring your own computer and access our guest WiFi network.

Activities to best suit you

Our recreation therapists will work with you to determine the type of activities, therapies, and interactions that would best meet your individual needs and preferences, discussing your hobbies, interests, spiritual preferences, short-term and long-term goals, support systems and more. You may decide to try a new activity like one of our art classes and discover a new or renewed interest even if you haven't been an artist in the recent past.

Resident Council

The Resident Council at Marianwood improves the quality of life for all residents and patients by discussing the issues and giving the managers and staff of Marianwood valuable feedback and suggestions related to care, food service, activities and other areas of concern to residents. The Resident Council meets monthly to discuss topics of interest, engage in dialogue with each other and staff members with the goal of contributing to continual improvement of services and maintaining open communication.  All residents are welcome to attend and participate.

The Resident Council sponsors a monthly caramel corn sale and donates the proceeds to service projects and to support local charities. The Resident Council also sponsors events such as the annual food drive for the local food bank.
