A lot of work goes into a day at New Hope and celebrating Easter Sunday was no eggception. Our Recreation Therapy Department, with assistance from other staff, planned and pulled off a Easter Egg Hunt of massive proportions. Our team filled and hid over 2,000 eggs for our kids to find! That’s a lot of eggs.
Recreation Therapy is all about evidenced based interventions, but sometimes good old fun is overlooked as an intervention that can also help residents in their healing journey.
