The philosophy of Re-Creative Resources, Inc. is that
recreation and leisure are necessary components of life
which are essential to the well being of all individuals,
regardless of their physical, emotional, or mental condition.
With people living longer, it is increasingly important
to provide opportunity for these individuals to continue
to enrich their lives. Recreation programs in health-care
facilities should be carefully designed to meet each
individual's needs and interests. Individuals in health-care
facilities should be offered opportunities to engage
in social, cognitive, spiritual, physical, sensory
stimulating, diversional, empowering, and creative-expressive
activities, that have meaning and purpose.
The implementation of the 2006 revised CMS Guidance to Surveyors
for Activities also emphasizes the need for person-appropriate
activities. Long-term care facilities across the country
are beginning to make these dramatic quality of life
changes. Re-creative Resources, Inc. can help develop
a program of activities and recreation that is therapeutic,
educational, individualized, interdisciplinary, and
fun for everyone.
