Hobbies and work therapy

One of the very important activities in our home is organising clients’ free time, and filling it with meaningful pastimes. Hobbies serve both as entertainment and therapy and are mainly focused on developing physical, mental and social skills and knowledge, and on supporting residents’ creative activities/ talents. They are based on clients’ needs and interests and are offered daily, in the morning and afternoon. Each client is free to choose whether to take part in the activities and to choose from the available offer.

Planned programmes and activities:

  • integration programmes – going to the theatre, various concerts and cultural events, with the objective of giving clients a contact with the social environment, prevent clients’ isolation and give them the opportunity to enjoy positive experiences.
  • hobbies – various creative and other manual activities such as knitting, cutting, painting, construction sets, board games, puzzles, reading and listening to books and other such activities aimed as exercising and maintaining fine and gross motor skills, the opportunity to express their inner feelings through work
  • exercise, walking – preserving and supporting the client’s physical fitness, spending time in the fresh air, contact with the surroundings,
  • sitting and talking – exchanging information on the social, cultural, medical and other aspects of life
  • cultural programmes – performances by children, folk groups, social events etc.
  • suitable activities also include mental work, thinking, meditation, listening to music, watching TV
  • everyday activities such as: cleaning, helping with ironing, maintaining clothing, organising various events, seasonal work in the park, removing the snow, raking leaves etc.

We plan to make information on events organised outside the home regularly accessible, and to offer the opportunity to participate.

The aim of these activities is to take advantage of the effects of work on healing a sick body or disturbed mind. All activities are adapted to the client’s physical and mental state, under the supervision of specialist staff.

They offer clients essential physical activity, adequate mental stimulation and the opportunity to get to know each other.
