Arts and Entertainment provides “Energy for Body, Mind and Soul”.
It is a vital program of activities that stimulates residents cognitively, culturally, creatively, psychologically, spiritually and physically and promotes individual and group pleasure and social interaction. It all starts with a monthly calendar that outlines fun, exciting and engaging activities --- okay a calendar is a calendar but when you put it together with talented, passionate and energizing staff, it becomes a daily delight for our residents. Our staff delivers specialized activities for all of the Grace Park Senior Living lifestyles.

- And everyone enjoys when the American Therapy Dog Association visits!
