Fun changes behavior! Taking something that is good for your overall social, physical, emotional and mental well being and turning it into something engaging and fun, with positive outcomes, is critical for overall quality of life. Those affected by cognitive impairments (memory, or other mental health), physical challenges or disabilities may not always be able to identify how to turn their needs into effective and engaging accomplishments. Therapeutic Recreation is purposeful intervention designed to improve an individual’s quality of life; mental health, emotional and physical wellness. While standard therapies tend to treat illness, recreation therapy can aid to develop and maintain great well being and quality of life.
Thornbury based Recreational Respite provides recreational therapy services for groups and for individuals throughout our region. See their website for more information and informative videos.
