Salem Transitional Care nurtures and encourages patients to be active and involved, and our Activity Program offers something for everyone. Activity breathes vitality and vitality breathes happiness. So our goal is to offer activities for patients that promote life through creative stimulation and opportunities for social involvement. Our Activity Director turns requests into a reality and schedules a wide-range of outings and events.

For example, at Salem Transitional Care, we offer things like:

  • The ability to express creativity through painting, needlework, collage, sculpture, or many other handicrafts.
  • Opportunities to follow your spiritual desires through a wide range of special religious programs, meditation and prayer. (Note: we believe one’s religious beliefs are a personal matter and all beliefs are respected by our staff.)
  • Ways to stay challenged through things like trivia, word puzzles and bingo.
  • The opportunity to indulge in fine entertainment from the broader community or sit back and watching a matinee movie with freshly popped popcorn.
  • Avenues to share your skills with others (e.g. teaching youngsters to knit or crochet)

Every now and then, a spot to be alone is important, but at other times we gain enjoyment from being with others to laugh, tell stories or work together on an art project, and these social activities for seniors allow our residents to correspond with their families, make new friends, and celebrate each day anew!

Dining at Salem Transitional Care

We offer a variety of delicious options for each meal we serve. A well-prepared and thoughtful meal is central to having a good day and improving your personal health. That is why we strive to make every meal you have with us one of the best. Our menu changes monthly, but we have a staple of choices to accommodate all appetites.

We also accommodate special diets. If dietary restrictions are part of your plan of care, our clinical staff works with our trained chefs to prepare your meals according to your doctor’s orders.
