Therapeutic Recreation

At Bishop McCarthy Center, our dedicated recreation department understands the importance of socializing and forging friendships, all while keeping active, which is why our recreation department provides our residents with a stimulating variety of recreation programs on an individual and small- and large-group basis. The Director of Therapeutic Recreation plans a monthly schedule of activities, programs and special events, including musical entertainment, games, gardening, craft projects, movies, pet therapy, intergenerational activities and community outings. Additionally, upon admission, our therapeutic recreation staff determines the residents’ activity interest by completing activities assessments, which are used to develop individualized programs for them.

Bishop McCarthy Center is an affiliate of Catholic Health Group, Stewards of the Catholic Tradition in the Diocese of Camden.
