Recreation / Activities

The New York State Veterans' Home provides an ongoing therapeutic recreation and activities program, designed to meet the interests and physical/psycho-social well being of each resident. Our Recreation Therapists encourage residents to voluntarily participate in facility programs, stimulate residents to use their physical and mental capabilities to the fullest extent and enable residents to maintain a sense of usefulness and self-respect.

Recreation programs vary from large group functions such as Religious and Bingo games to small groups such as reading groups and reminiscence groups, to one on one activities like crafts and gardening.

Additionally we provide special activities such as:

  • Live Entertainment
  • Race Track Trips
  • Shopping Trips
