The Activation department’s mission statement is “to provide an optimum level of programming for the residents of Golden Dawn Senior Citizen Home based on individual identified needs.” All residents are encouraged to participate in programs of interest to
them. Family members are always welcome.
A variety of activities are offered to our residents. Fun and fitness, individual exercise programs, and restorative care are components of promoting a healthy lifestyle. Leisure and recreational activities include bingo, outings, knit & chatter, men’s and ladie's luncheons, music, playing video games on the Nintendo Wii game such as bowling, tennis & golf.
Golden Dawn recognizes the importance of family celebrations. Our residents invite their loved ones to join us for fun & fellowship at our Christmas celebration and annual Fish Fry. Monthly birthday parties hosted by community groups celebrate each of our residents’ special days.
This role is a very special one within our organization. Our Chaplain is deeply committed to nurturing the well being of residents and their families through spiritual friendship, counsel and prayer. Our Chaplain provides loving care for our residents regardless of, and with respect for, individual faith and beliefs. Interdenominational Church services, hymn sings, reflections and one on one visits also support the spiritual needs of residents and their families.
For details of each program's time and location, calendars are posted in a central location and monthly activity calendars are also available on this web site. Some of the events and activities have additional costs and the resident may be requested to help offset the cost involved (i.e. recreational outings).
