Urban Therapy Fun

urban virosHi this is Anthony Diaz from Rosa’ Adult Care Living. We continue to do fun things in our home with urban therapy. This week clients had the opportunity to go to Viro’s Real Italian Bakery. Our residents had the opportunity to have a variety of pizza’s and were surprised with homemade cannolis. For many of them, it was the first time they had cannolis and they could not say enough about them.

They also had the opportunity to meet the owners and get a chance to say hello. The owners made sure the pizza’s were ready ahead of time so our residents did not have to wait so thank you Viro’s on 22nd and Sarnoff.

What is so important about urban therapy is that our residents get to participate in the decision making process. They sit together and make a choice what they would like to do. No, do not worry, we have said it would be longer than a couple hours to go to Disneyland.

They do enjoy having the opportunity to get out of the house, meet people, try new things and form stronger friendships with one another. Making sure our residents get along is important. It is difficult to move into a home and leave your loved one behind. It is so important that our residents get along with each other and urban therapy provides that opportunity of our residents spending quality time together outside the home and really getting to know each other in a social setting.

Urban therapy is a big hit here at Rosa’s for those who can attend and we are pleased with the results we are getting from the outings our residents get to have. Our job is to help ease boredom, give our clients great activity and have an opportunity to share what is going on with their lives. It is just another reason why Rosa’s stands out.
