At Long Beach Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, we believe in the power and importance of socialization and recreational activities as part of our efforts to restore mental health and happiness. These programs are separate from our speech, physical, and occupational therapy activities. These types of programs are designed to work on a specific set of skills including mobility and of course, socialization with others. This gives patients the confidence and support they need from peers. This provides our residents with the time and opportunity to grow friendships and give them a feeling of belonging and comfort.
