Celebrating Our Activity Team

January 31, 2023
In honor of National Activities Professional Week, we wanted to highlight our awesome Activities Department at Salem Woods! Thanks to our team of activity professionals, our residents get the opportunity to make new friends, stay active and engage in much more than just Bingo. Our activity programs are resident-centered, meeting individualized needs, keeping residents constantly engaged, and, most importantly, helping to improve their overall quality of life.

From coffee and music in the mornings to daily Bingo and movies in the afternoon, they provide activities for all of our residents to participate in and enjoy, no matter their circumstances and level of function.

Meet our Activity Team that makes all the difference!

Teresa Brown - Activities Director

Teresa has been at Salem Woods for 19 years. Her favorite activity to do with the residents, without a doubt, is music group. She loves getting the residents up and dancing to music and seeing the smiles it brings to their faces. She thinks activities are important because it keeps residents social and allows them to make friends with one another.

Kim Smith - Activities Assistant

Kim has been with Salem Woods for over 22 years. Her favorite activity to do with residents is Bingo. Kim also enjoys getting to pamper the residents and having one-on-one time with them. She feels that activities connect the residents with the staff members and give them a chance to talk about all their life experiences.

Lacie Fisher - Activities Assistant

Lacie is one of Salem Woods' newest assistants and she has been with us for a little over six months. Lacie loves making DIY projects with clay, paint and fabrics with the residents. Lacie gets so much joy working in activities by putting a smile on the residents' faces and making them feel happy every day.

Derek Steinman - Activities Assistant

Derek is another of our newest assistants and has been with us for about five months. He assists our residents with their appointments or outings. Derek loves one-on-one time with the residents because it creates a special bond. He loves sharing moments with them in their everyday life.

Teresa, Kim, Lacie and Derek go above and beyond for our residents to make sure they are always having a good time. We are so happy they are part of our team. Thank you for all your wonderful contributions to Salem Woods! Happy Activities Professional's Week!
