Our activity programme has been designed by an occupational therapist which encompasses all physical, psychological and spiritual needs. This program is called ‘Life at Nazareth’. This program provides opportunities for engagement in various activities to cater for each resident’s needs, and specifically designed for each resident’s level of functioning. Activities include physical activities such as chair exercises, cognitive activities such as board games and quizzes, sensory activities such as baking and gardening, as well as spiritual activities such as hymn singing and bible studies for those who wish to attend. The ‘Life at Nazareth’ program is based on a 4 week cycle.
