Sometimes these behaviors can be redirected through activities or prevented through regular daily activities. Imagine living a life day in and out without in the house with not much to do. Would you become bored? Frustrated? Angry? As a past Activity Coordinator, I've seen so many benefits from incorporating activities in one's daily routine.

  • Provides Exercise

  • Reduce Behavioral Symptoms

  • Keep Busy
