Lifestyle and Activities

At Valley View, we believe that our residents have an opportunity to perform at their best when they have a living environment that provides them with the social and living comforts that allows them to feel at their best. One of our core goals is to maintain a calm, welcoming, and therapeutic living environment that simultaneously provides residents with an adequate level of psychosocial stimuli to encourage comfortable engagement in daily socialization and activities. We also focus a lot of attention towards supporting the positive social affects of our living environment to promote the highest achievable level of autonomy and participation when it comes to activities of daily living. 


In recognition of the unique physical, cognitive, and psychosocial challenges that many of our residents experience, each resident is supported with individualized care approaches and services based on their individualized health service, behavioral intervention, and activity programs. This approach supports our staff with providing effective care and behavioral strategies to reduce the social implications of cognitively impaired related behavioral symptoms. 

Daily Activities

Our staff plan daily activities at the direction of our residents that are centered around expressed interests. Activities are often offered in stations to diversify activity options that will appeal to different residents. The activity stations also increase participation for residents who require a modified activity, reduced stimuli, and/or 1:1 assistance from the staff to participate.
