Homestead Manor offers a variety of programs that nurture the social, physical, cognitive, creative and spiritual well-being of our residents. We hope to enrich the lives of our residents and offer them an enjoyable quality of life!
Here are some of the activities we offer:

Off-site trips including shopping, lunch trips, baseball games, plays, and movies
We also offer these specialized activities:
Homestead Manor Café- this is located in the Lighthouse Dining Room. It offers a casual coffeehouse atmosphere with music, beverages, and light snacks. The residents can relax and socialize.
Computer Corner - Participants will have the opportunity to explore, hands on, different topics in technology. No experience or equipment is necessary.
Mind & Body Fitness Group - These workshops combine proven physical and cognitive exercises to support overall health and well-being.
Music and Memory - This is an internationally acclaimed training and certification program based on research in the fields of neurology, psychology, geriatrics, nursing, and general medicine. Over and over, studies are finding a deep connection between music and the brain. While concerts and sing-alongs are enjoyable, the music featured is broad. The impact of a personalized playlist combined with a personal music device (iPods), has great potential. Using the same methods taught to our staff, researchers and other caregivers have witnessed increased levels of alertness and socialization, improved appetite and sleep patterns, decreased pain and agitation and many other benefits. We will be turning to families as well as residents to ensure that the music on an individual's playlist is meaningful to them. We will also have the ability to include favorite old time radio shows, podcasts, and even personal messages from loved ones. No other senior care provider on the Shore offers this program –we are excited to be the first! For more information, please visit musicandmemory.org.
