Generations strives to assure our activities program is of the highest possible quality and sets a best practice program for other organizations to follow . Each one of our residential facilities is staffed with a full-time Activity Director tasked with the responsibility of keeping our service recipients active, helping each S.R. to reach his or her individual goals, and ensuring that the highest quality lifestyle possible is maintained.
Our service recipients enjoy river boat rides, baseball games, programs at Opryland Hotel, and trips to the many historic battlefields located in Tennessee. Our activity directors have worked collaboratively to bring service recipients together for communal events like bowling, Generations Church Services, and our annual competitive sporting event, The Generations Olympics. Other activities commonly enjoyed at Generations include trips to the theater, dining out at restaurants, and picnics at State Parks.
All of the activities are made possible by the fundraising efforts of our staff, community volunteers and corporate events. We have fun runs, gospel quartets, volleyball tournaments, radio-thons, bake sales, and dinner concerts. The resource development team is always seeking new ways to engage the community and provide innovative activities to enhance the service recipients’ experience with our organization. Each of Generations’ residential treatment homes raises funds throughout the year to provide for the service recipients’ Christmas gifts; medications not covered by insurance; dental work; eyeglasses; and any other individual needs that arise.
Generation’s Activity Directors work tirelessly to meet the needs of our Service Recipients. At Generations we believe in a synergistic approach to providing care; we focus on the person as a whole. Physical, mental, spiritual and emotional needs must be addressed to effect healing. Ensuring our service recipients maintain an active, healthy lifestyle is paramount to our mission of providing the highest quality care possible.
Generations Health Association, Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to serving the mental health care needs of our communities. Many of our activities are only possible due to your support. Insurance does not pay for the services provided by our Activities Department; therefore, we are incredibly thankful for the support of those who donate time, resources and/or participate in our fundraisers.
