About Therapeutic recreation

What is Therapeutic Recreation and its Benefits?

 The purpose of TR is to enable all individuals to achieve quality of life and optimal health through meaningful participation in recreation and leisure. In addition, TR utilizes functional interventions, education and recreation participation enabling persons with physical, cognitive, emotional and/or social limitations to acquire and/or maintain the skills, knowledge and behaviours required to enjoy their leisure optimally, function independently with the least amount of assistance and participate as fully as possible in society.

What are Meaningful Activities?

Meaningful Activities address one’s psychological and social needs. They relate to the quality of the experience rather than the specific type of activity.

Well-being is not just about activities, it’s about everyday meaningful interaction or engagement. Activities may provide emotional, creative, intellectual, physical and spiritual stimulation. It should take place in an environment that is appropriate to the person's needs and preferences, which may include using outdoor spaces or making adaptations to the person's environment.
