Overview of Activities

Team of older people playing with an open parachuteIn an effort to promote an active lifestyle for our resident, West Hartford Health & Rehabilitation Center offers many recreational programs. Under the direction of our Recreation Director, these programs are meant to encourage a fun and fulfilling experience.

It is wonderful for families to see their loved one engaging in activities that they once liked, but were unable to continue due to their physical condition. Through the abundance of programs offered, residents also have the option to try something completely new. If your loved one has a suggestion for an activity that we do not currently offer, our Recreation Department always considers individual requests.
