RECREATION AND SOCIAL SERVICES
The Recreation Services Department is designed to meet individual resident needs related to their social, physical, spiritual and emotional well being through the provision of program services which include recreation leisure services, volunteer services, pastoral care services, community outreach and client advocacy. Program Services strive to maintain or increase resident self-esteem, autonomy and individuality while encouraging preservation of their previous lifestyle, respecting choices and include opportunity for resident/family member participation.
Vision Nursing Home in Sarnia has a Program Services Coordinator, Volunteer Coordinator, Recreation Facilitators and a Social Service Worker who provide quality programs to meet the social, emotional, physical, cognitive and spiritual needs of residents. There is a wide range of activities offered from quiet one-on-one visits to large group events. Programs at the home are offered seven days a week which include: games, exercises, Birthday Parties, crafts, musical entertainment and special events. Regular outings are scheduled in Vision?s bus that is equipped with a wheelchair lift. The monthly newsletter, ?Vision News and Views?, is given to each resident and posted in various locations throughout the building, to communicate upcoming activities. Monthly and daily calendars are posted to keep residents, staff and visitors up to date on events. Family and friends are welcome to attend any activity at the Nursing Home or Rest Home.

SPIRITUAL AND RELIGIOUS CARE
Holistic Care at Vision involves the total care of the residents in mind, body and spirit. The goal of Pastoral Care is to maintain, strengthen and renew the spiritual component of the residents' total health, and to provide spiritual support for families and staff. This goal is met in co-operation with care givers, the residents and where practical with families and local clergy.
Ecumenical services are held every Sunday. Other services include Hymn sings, Bible Studies, private communion services. Residents and family have access to a private chapel.
