CarePairs Staff Resident Friendship Program

<< Back to all Special Programs

CarePairs Logo

For long term care patients choosing to make AristaCare their home, we offer therapeutic recreation and social activities to provide continuous mental and physical stimulation at all times. Our goal is to maximize our residents quality of life while preserving their dignity and privacy.

Beginning the beginning of June 2011, we have launched a new Resident/Staff Friendship Program at our AristaCare locations. The program details are being handled by our Therapeutic Recreation Directors.

How the Program Works
Each staff member is given the opportunity to “adopt” a resident of their choice (one staff member per long term resident). Once a resident is adopted, the staff member (in addition to regular duties) takes the extra time to go above and beyond for their adopted resident which may include spending time with them, doing something special for them, reading to them, celebrating their birthdays or any holidays they may observe, etc...

Only long-term residents can be adopted.
All participating staff receive "AristaCare CarePairs” t-shirts that they wear on Fridays.
