 THERAPEUTIC 

 RECREATION 

At Eger, we focus on the 5 components of therapeutic recreation: Physical, Social, Cognitive, Spiritual, and Emotional. Lead by a Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist (CTRS), Eger provides activities that are resident centered.  Modeling the lives of each individual resident, we create therapeutic activities that help residents feel connected to their lives, their family, and a sense of self.

Eger has 22 beautiful acres to enjoy outdoor activities, including community barbeques next to our koi pond. Eger encourages family and friends to join in activities with residents.  Residents enjoy time together in social events, time with family, and even time with furry friends!
