Fulton Center Residents Returning To Group Activities

It’s time to ease into activities at Fulton Center on Highway 122 in Gloversville. The Recreation Department at Fulton Center, for the first time in many months, resumed to group activities and it is being done with ease and carefulness at this 176-bed nursing and rehabilitation facility. For much of the time over the past year plus at Fulton Center, residents were either doing activities socially distanced in their rooms or via technological on their TV monitors as the Recreation team had a multimedia set-up where bingo was being done remotely.

On Monday May 17, Lona Bleyl, the Director of Activities set up a “Coffee & Chat” session for the men and woman so to ease the residents back into in-person group activities.

Many people don’t realize that you have to ease residents into things, especially coming out from underneath the pandemic as they return to group activities,” said Bleyl. “Residents have seen and talked to one another in person, yes, but returning to doing fun activities together, it had to be handled carefully and delicatelyThe goal is to get back to pre-Covid times.”
