A Typical Day

  • Every day at Page Robbins is filled with fun activities to engage the minds of all our participants.

Days at Page Robbins begin as early as 6:00 a.m., though clients are welcome to arrive later to meet their preferred schedule. We have copies of the local newspapers and other reading materials, and beverages are served just how each person likes! Breakfast is almost always prepared as a hot meal and is served from 7:30-8:45 a.m. each day.

Following breakfast, participants are reminded to use the restroom or are assisted with toileting. Then, the day’s activities truly begin. We divide our participants into smaller groups based on their cognitive function, so they will actively engage with people who have a similar level of cognitive and physical abilities and so activities will not be overwhelming. We even have a men’s group! The morning may include an art or music class, some sort of exercise, a word search or a group crossword puzzle. On occasion, we create crafts or have some hands-on activity, such as pea shelling or corn shucking.

Lunch is served at 11:30 a.m. A sample lunch menu could include baked salmon fillet with a tasty sauce, scalloped potatoes, green beans, roll, and pound cake with berries. After another restroom break, we enjoy some quiet time with relaxing music and allow for time to peruse magazines and picture books.

Early afternoon might include music, an art class, baking cookies, dice, dominoes, cards, flower arranging or woodworking, such as building a birdhouse. If the weather is nice, we sometimes enjoy time in our beautiful, therapeutic garden. After 3:00 p.m. snack, we work simple jigsaw puzzles, play table games and enjoy recorded music. At 4:00 p.m., one of our capable care assistants leads a group activity. The Center remains open until 6:00 p.m.

Every activity we offer is adult appropriate and success oriented. While we encourage our participants to participate in group activities, if they would prefer to read or look at a magazine, they certainly may do so. Remember, we primarily serve those with memory impairments, but we accept the frail elderly with no or minimal cognitive impairment as well so that they will be safe and engaged while you work or simply take a break from caregiving.

Most people spend approximately 8-9 hours here, but whatever you as the caregiver needs, we will work closely with you to provide quality care for your loved ones.
