Music, Art, Exercise and more
Providence Marianwood has a full schedule of activities, classes, outings and performances for residents and patients to choose from. Everyone is encouraged to participate in activities that appeal to them either as familiar pastimes or in pursuit or new skills and talents.
A variety of art classes and activities are offered at Providence Marianwood. Oil, watercolor and other mediums are used. Residents and patients are invited to be creative, participate in offered classes and tell us if there are other classes and activities that they would enjoy.
Music is used to increase or maintain levels of physical, mental, social and emotional functioning and for pure entertainment and enjoyment. Professionally trained Music Therapists come to Marianwood regularly to lead groups. Entertainment includes music that residents remember and get great enjoyment from hearing again. A weekly “Hymn Sing” is a favorite activity.
Qi Gong is offered weekly and many residents at Marianwood are enthusiastic about this form of exercise. Other exercise groups and individual activities are also offered including a weekly “Walking Club” held indoors or out as the weather permits.
We have several live-in cats and welcome visiting pets. Studies have shown real health benefits from pet therapy including reduced stress levels, lower blood pressure and better mental health. Please ask at the front desk about rules for visiting pets.
Providence Marianwood offers on-site medical services as well. These include dentistry, podiatry, optometry, and mental health services.
