Family Events

One of the many things that sets Edgewood apart from other skilled rehab facilities or nursing homes is the creativity of our life enrichment specialists and the volume and range of programs we host. One can find everything from art classes to afternoons at the spa, scenic rides to Bible study, concerts to card games and so much more. 

In the past, residents, family and friends would be welcome to attend any of our programs or activities, including the following special events coming up this month. However, due to COVID-19, we are only able to host limited group activities for residents only. It’s our hope to be able to enjoy these and other family events once we’re assured that COVID-19 is no longer a public health threat to our high-risk population. In the meantime, take a look at our typical yearly events and programs.      

For information on the rest of what’s happening, take a look at our Family Events Calendar.
