As your loved one settles into a routine, their days may include various activities of their choosing which can be conveniently arranged by our Lifestyle Director. Additionally, our Housekeeping and Maintenance teams will keep their apartment in ship-shape every week.

Mind, Body & Soul
  • Occupational, Physical, and Speech Therapy
  • Group Exercise Classes
  • Community Outings
  • Religious Services
  • Interactive Learning

Healthy living includes the mind, body, and spirit, and our caregivers work every day to help residents live a healthy lifestyle. 

Our community includes daily exercise classes with other residents so they can stay fit and limber. And when they just want to get the blood flowing, we offer abundant outdoor opportunities for a brisk walk through the lovely surrounding area. 

Additionally, Lifelong Learning – as part of our signature SPARK program – provides residents with a source of continued growth. They may hear from guest speakers, attend small and large group crafts, or engage in painting programs and interactive lectures. These programs are essential for stimulating the mind as well as the body. 

Religion is essential to many of our staff and residents – and we’re happy to welcome all denominations. We offer dedicated space for various services, gatherings, and other interests to review, read, sing, discuss, or otherwise fulfill your desire to seek or pursue a warm and familiar experience.

We were directed to Barathaven by a medical professional, and it was the best advice we received. Since our loved one’s residency everything we were told has come true. Anytime we call or visit the building is immaculate, we are always greeted with smiles from the staff, and most importantly, our family member is happy.
