At the Manning Plaza, an enthusiastic recreation staff encourages all residents to spice up their lives by pursuing vibrant, well planned group events as well as individual and spontaneous activities that focus on lifestyle choices and preferences. The overall goal of the Activity department is to provide activities that satisfy the social, mental, spiritual, and physical needs of each individual resident.
Residents obviously live within the physical structure of the Plaza, but remain an important part of the bigger community through a variety of outings. Some of these include: weekly shopping trips downtown for those who are interested, Dutch treat outings to local restaurants, country drives, annual trip to the apple orchard, inter-facility gatherings and numerous others.
We encourage family involvement through visits and participation in any of our activities and outings. Family and friends are the nucleus to our resident’s well-being and we love having them involved in our daily life here at the Plaza.
