What if my family member is shy and doesn’t like to do group activities?
While we encourage clients to be engaged with others, they may choose not to participate in group activities. Individuals can still benefit from being around conversations, laughter, and movement. Clients can choose from a variety of independent activities such as puzzles, books, magazines, coloring or painting. Staff is also able to provide one-on-one attention.
