Nursing Homes Chicago

Nursing homes have social activities that stimulate the mind and body. Chicago nursing homes offer crafts, music and games to the elderly or young adults with physical or mental disorders.  Activities directors organize the schedule and preparation of the activities. Social activities are a way to encourage social interaction and mind stimulation.

Crafts are things like picture painting or drawing, creating picture frames or other pieces of simple artwork and coloring or drawing pictures. Supplies needed would be Popsicle sticks, crayons, markers, glue and paper.  All Chicago nursing homes have residents who may not be able to complete all of the different types of activities. Based on the illness or condition that the resident suffers from it may cause different limitations to what each resident is able to accomplish with crafts.
