Senior Living

Our residents have the choice of being involved in activities that provide physical involvement, mental stimulation, social interaction, spiritual enrichment and fulfillment.

Daily activity calendars are given to each resident and larger calendars are displayed in the hall.

Leisure activities offered are bingo, horse racing, card games, cribbage tournaments, movies and crossword puzzles.

  • Local protestant and Catholic church services are scheduled.

  • Local musicians provide an afternoon of entertainment weekly.

  • Shopping and eating out trips are scheduled monthly.

  • An iPad and Wii game system are also available for the residents’ use.

Activity Department

A certified activity coordinator and an activity assistant are on staff at Northern Light Continuing Care - Mars Hill.

We believe for a person to be happy one should have the opportunity to be involved in social functions. With this in mind, we maintain a paid staff, joined by volunteers from the community,

who provide day and evening entertainment, games, crafts, parties, picnics, religious services and many other activities to keep residents busy and engaged.

We encourage residents to participate in these activities. Some activities may be part of our resident’s plan of care to assist in their health and physical improvement.

The Activity Department utilizes the facility van for community outings throughout the year.

Our Food Service staff meets with our residents to discuss likes and dislikes when it comes to food. We work with our residents to ensure dietary concerns are met and our residents have the proper nutrition.

Meal Times

Meals are served ala cart style throughout the facility. Along with the meals provided, a resident may make special requests to Food Services within the guidelines of their dietary restrictions. We have a resident kitchenette on both Long-Term Care and on the Skilled Unit from which residents may request snacks during evening hours.

Cafeteria Services

If a friend or family member would like to join a resident for a meal, individual trays can be ordered in advance by notifying Food Services.

Food Items

We encourage families to bring in food from home for their loved ones. If a family member brings in food items, we request they give it to the Charge Nurse, who will deliver it to the kitchen. Our kitchen staff will ensure residents with restricted diets have the homemade food incorporated into their meal plan.
