At Providence Place, we focus on wellness programming for our residents.
Our passionate, well-qualified Recreational Therapy department is dedicated to planning and leading well-balanced activities on a daily basis. The Providence Place team consists of certified music therapists, a certified therapeutic recreational specialist from the National Council of Activity Professionals, as well as a certified Arthritis Foundation™ instructor.
We also offer spiritual care at Providence Place provided by our on-site chaplain. We are nondenominational and welcome all faiths. We also have spiritual programs and services offered through the generosity of volunteers from local churches including St. Helena’s Catholic Church, Our Redeemer Lutheran, Lebanon Lutheran, Minnehaha United, Epworth United Methodist, Victory Church, Shower of Blessings Church, Ebenezer, St. Albert the Great, Bethesda, and Minnehaha Communion Lutheran.
