The Harbor provides an activities-based program that does much more than keep residents busy. Activities are designed to enhance self-esteem and maintain residents’ skills and abilities as long as possible. In addition to activities held in The Harbor’s self-contained activity areas, residents may be involved in facility wide special events held on the first floor as well as supervised outings to local restaurants and stores. Residents may also be taken outside to Tower Hill’s beautiful backyard/patio, as weather permits, to smell the flowers and enjoy the fresh air and sunshine.
To help combat the weight loss that can be common for persons with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, special consideration is given to food selection, preparation and presentation. The Harbor staff monitors the residents’ food/liquid intake, assists them at mealtimes as needed and provides snacks and fluids throughout the day.
