A positive and uplifting atmosphere can set the tone for a patient’s stay. Cedar Hill employs outgoing and friendly professional staff to create social programs and activities. They often specialize activities to match the capabilities and needs of each patient. This also has a powerful impact in the healing process.
And we don’t just have activities like bingo and art. Our activity staff works hard to provide fun outings, celebrations for special occaisions, and entertaining shows for the residents. So whether it’s a trip to the mall, an Easter egg hunt, a Mother’s Day dinner, or Elvis (Denver Lee), Puppetmaster Chuck Zerger, The Good N Country Band, Gospel Musicians Frank and Ruth Call, Banjo Dave, or our annual Hawaiian Luau with real Hawaiian dancers and fire dancing, the residents are sure to have a great time.
Community involvement is another hallmark of the Cedar Hill activity program. Churches, schools and a supportive community are constantly in our building providing meaningful activity and a caring environment for our residents. The residents also do their share to reach out, like riding in the annual Veterans’ Day. Each resident is given a calendar to keep them informed of upcoming events such as birthday parties, movies, musical programs, outings and other special events. Friends and families are always welcome and encouraged to visit and attend our special events.
