The E.A.G.L.E. Day Program
The EAGLE day program was established in June of 1999. EAGLE stands for "Enhancing and Accommodating Growth in a quality Living Environment". The program runs daily, seven days a week. Program begins after the breakfast meal and ends at approximately 8:00 p.m.
The treatment program includes a balance of Cognitive, Physical, ADL's, Psychosocial and Self-Expression Components.
Goals Of The E.A.G.L.E. Program
- Maximize attention span or moment of alertness.
- Increase feelings of security, comfort, and emotional well-being.
- Allow release of anxiety, frustration, and agitation.
- Deal creatively with paradoxes: the need for stimulation versus the problem of overstimulation; the need for predictability versus the value of prompting curious injury through change; the need for social interaction versus the importance of "time out or "one-li-ness"".
- Maintain maximum levels of self-care and dignity in toileting, grooming, dressing, and interpersonal behavior.
- Allow individuals to function at an appropriate pace and time schedule.
- Prevent unnecessary deterioration, suffering, or worry about memory loss through programming and services.
- Provide residents access to organized worship and/or personally meaningful religious expression.
Pet Therapy Program
Two times a week, our Activities Department offers a Pet Therapy Program, which integrates animals and plants into our living environment to improve the quality of life for our residents and to promote a more homelike environment in which to live.
Visitors may bring in a resident's personal pet for frequent visits. Our Activity Director ensures that all pets (residential and visiting) have current shot records on file, and we include areas that are pet-free for those bothered by allergies or who do not wish to participate.
