TGI Live Music
Who doesn’t like Live Music? No matter your age, ability, or interests, music has a way of sparking wonderful feelings and memories for our residents. That is why we offer a live weekly music show for the community. It’s a way to start the weekend, unwind, dance and enjoy some fun with friends and family!
Dr. Matthew Calamia. clinical neuropsychologist and an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology at Louisiana State University and his students bring virtual reality (VR) headsets to the community so that residents can try different VR activities. Residents can enjoy activities such as viewing 360° travel videos (e.g., of locations like beaches or countries they had personally traveled to) and viewing specific locations using a VR version of Google Street View. The VR experience promotes reminiscence and pleasure as a focus on positive effects on well-being with our seniors.
Whether you like to regularly plan and schedule trips or just feel like getting out for a while, knowing you have someone else to deal with the driving provides peace of mind. Our weekly transportation service offers a comfortable handicapped accessible van or bus to doctor appointments, fun excursions, off-site dining or shopping.
