Recreation NO Activity YES

In our long term care home Recreation is an important department.

The word “Recreation” is thought of by most citizens to mean a pastime activity, a way of absorbing our otherwise unused hours but Recreation means much more being properly thought of as literally creation again for our residents, re – creation if you will, activities that include much more than pastimes.

Perhaps, instead of “Recreation Department”  a better name would be “Activity Department” of which Recreation is a part.
