CREATIVE THERAPIES PROMOTE HEALING AND LAUGHTER. Your funny bone might just be the only sore body part to result from Eskaton’s newest rehabilitative therapy. It’s laughable but true. Humor therapy is among an expanding schedule of innovative therapies Eskaton offers to some or all residents in its independent, assisted, skilled nursing and memory care communities. All of which are intended to complement the primary occupational, physical and speech therapies provided by Eskaton Care Centers and Home Healthcare.
“Our goal is to provide therapies that are both effective and engaging,” explains Jane Rupp, a quality and compliance nurse with Eskaton. “Enthusiasm definitely motivates participants and helps with the healing process.”
Art therapy uses in-house demonstrations and museum visits to inspire creativity with memory care residents. Eskaton partners with ARTZ: Artists for Alzheimer’s on this new concept.
