Therapeutic Recreation Month

Therapeutic Recreation MonthGreetings Fellow NSRPH Members,

We extend to all members’ best wishes and congratulations on your hard work as we celebrate Therapeutic Recreation during the month of February.

Our profession continues to grow and evolve and this month is the perfect opportunity to promote our valuable role in health care.

Recreation staff across this province contributes daily to the lives of our clients in so many ways, whether administrating, direct programming, community outings, volunteer management or any other myriad of duties for which we are responsible for.

Our impact on our resident/clients lives are positive and empowering. I encourage you to use this special month not only to educate others about our role but also to take the time to give yourselves a hearty pat on the back for a job well done.

Memory Boxes Help Residents With Memory Impairments or Confusion. Memory Boxes help residents with memory confusion
Memory Boxes can help confused or disoriented residents to find their room or apartment, and can cut down on other behavioral issues.

There is nothing elaborate about a memory box, and they are fairly easy to create and implement into your home. Basically, they are a box, or display case that is placed right outside a resident's room. Usually, these are kept at eye-level. This box is filled with items that the resident identifies with - personal items to help "jog" their memory.
