Activation Therapy

Activation therapy services are offered to residents in large or small groups, both inside the home and outside in the community. Activation staff can often be found in residents rooms conducting one-to-one programs.

The Activation Therapists play an integral role in planning and providing appropriate activities to promote the physical, intellectual, emotional, social and spiritual needs of each resident. Together with residents, families and other members of the care team, the Activation Therapists develop suitable programs.

Some of our popular programs include: bingo, monthly birthday parties and outings such as shopping and dining out. A list of regular and special events is posted throughout the building and will be provided to you each month.

Music and Horticultural Therapy

In addition to the Activation Therapists, Sheridan Villa has a Music Therapist and a Horticultural Therapist. Individual and group sessions are held.

Rehabilitation/Physiotherapy Services

Rehabilitation services are provided by our Physiotherapist and Occupational Therapist when required. Residents are assessed by the therapists and an individualised treatment plan is developed. Through individual treatment and/or group therapy, this team works with residents to promote health, develop skills, restore function and maintain overall physical abilities. A fun aspect is incorporated into all rehabilitation groups. Re-assessment of goals and intervention is ongoing to maximise benefits of therapy.
