Nataly's Family Home Events
Maintaining a level of entertainment and enjoyment is paramount for aging seniors, and there is always plenty going on at Nataly's Adult Family Home. At least once per week, there is some form of entertainment and/or therapeutic activity scheduled for our residents.
Aside from typical holiday festivities and celebrations, Nataly celebrates every resident's birthday and all holidays with gifts, food and drink. Families are always invited as Nataly provides everything to ensure the comfort and enjoyment of residents and their families.
Nataly brings in various performers through the year to ensure that our residents maintain a high level or enjoyment while keeping them engaged and positively stimulated. For Music Therapy, we often employ the services of Upbeat Music Therapy, and our newest performers Lori Ann and Wayne Davisson who provide music for all occasions; featuring violin, accordian, piano and organ.
Did you know that music therapy is effective in addressing physical, emotional, cognitive, and social needs of individuals? As they say, music soothes the soul, and is certainly a welcomed event in our home. An enjoyable time is had by all whenever a musical event or musical therapy is scheduled.

Like many forms of effective expression, art therapy is actually a form of psychotherapy involving the encouragement of free self-expression through painting, drawing or modeling.

Positive experiences, regardless of the activity, is so important to the human existence and this applies to all individuals, not only seniors. Horticultural, or Garden Therapy is actually a time-proven practice. Its many therapeutic benefits have been very well documented not only for years, but actually for centuries! It has been effective in treating and working with people including war veterans, and individuals from all walks of life. Garden Therapy is widely used within a broad range of rehabilitative, vocational, and community settings.
