Activities

Maintaining an active lifestyle is a key component to staying healthy, happy and fit. To that end, many engaging activities are available to our patients and residents, regardless of fitness level or ability.

 

Get Involved.....Volunteer!

If you have a passion for working with senior citizens, or plan on embarking in a career in the health care or care-giving field, you may wish to volunteer at The Ellis.

Whether you have a few days a week or a few hours, we would love to work with you. The Ellis always welcomes volunteers.
