Founded in 1940 by Gladys Bownes, Barnwell’s staff strives to continue Gladys’ vision of excellent nursing care coupled with the notion that a stay in a nursing home, for either long term care or short term rehabilitation, should be an experience filled with caring and respect for the dignity of the individual.

Therapeutic Recreation, also known as Recreational Therapy, aims to restore, remediate or rehabilitate residents in order to improve functioning and independence as well as reduce or eliminate the effects of illness or disability. The primary purpose of Recreational Services is to provide recreation resources and opportunities in an effort to improve health and well-being.
Therapeutic Recreation plays an essential role in enriching the lives of our residents at Barnwell through a variety of dynamic daily activities that cultivate self-expression, encourage socialization and promote wellness. All enrichment activities are thoughtfully designed with each resident's age, personal characteristics and cognitive and physical abilities in mind. We proudly offer residents the opportunity to participate in stimulating programs that are carefully designed to promote wellness, enhance memory, improve communication, alleviate pain and manage stress.
For our residents with Alzheimer's and dementia, special programs are designed to encourage self-expression, reminiscence, socialization and communication. Creative workshops, art and music therapy are modalities used as outlets for expression and fulfillment for our Alzheimer's and dementia residents.
Research suggests music therapy can benefit those with physical and neurological conditions, including stroke, Alzheimer's disease, related dementias and depression. Pet therapy, or the use of companion animals to promote health and healing, has been shown to have both physical and psychological benefits, such as lowering blood pressure and elevating mood. Our Therapeutic Recreation staff incorporates both music and pet therapy to enhance quality of life at Barnwell.
