The Manilla Manor has made it a
priority in its activity programming and
philosophy to provide our elders with many
opportunities to live a life with purpose,
companionship, enjoyment, and humor.
Opportunities for empowerment and those to
maintain each residents' current ability levels
are a priority in our program.
Activities are provided to meet
our elders' spiritual, physical, social,
intellectual, creative, leisure and
entertainment needs and choices. Mentally
stimulating activities such as current events,
trivia, presentations, displays, discussion
groups and resident meetings are held. Physical
activities provided are exercises, bowling,
put-put golf, basketball free-throw shooting,
walks and outdoor outings. All activities are
adapted to each elder's present level of mental
and physical functioning and encouraged as
appropriate for them. Our elders are taken on
van ride outings to interesting sites, parks,
and activities. A favorite end of summer
activity includes the making of Lime Pickles
with Manilla Manor staff and elders.
Religious activities of bible
study, Catholic Mass, rosary and communion
services, Lutheran services and communion,
Presbyterian and Methodist services and
communion, and an ecumenical church service
weekly are held and led by various pastors and
ministers of the area.
