The Therapeutic Activity Department (TAS) at Fair Acres strives to enrich the lives of each person we serve through the provision of therapeutic activities.  Daily activities provide treatment and recreational opportunities to individuals with illness or disabling conditions.  We seek to improve physical, mental and emotional well being, as well as reduce stress, depression, and anxiety.

  • TAS operates seven days and five nights a week and employs a staff of over 30 people. 
  •  Throughout the year, TAS goes out on over 250 community outings.
  • Sporting events include Phillies, Blue Rocks, River Sharks and Union games. 
  • Shopping trips are popular, as well as movies, fishing, picnics at Ridley Creek State Park, and trips to Harrah’s Casino and Delaware Park.
  • Annual excursions include Shady Maple smorgasbord in Lancaster County, Ocean City, NJ’s Boardwalk and the Atlantic City Air Show. 
  • There are ice cream and water ice excursions for those with lower tolerance, as well as fall foliage trips and visits to Linvilla Orchards.
  • On a daily basis, there are well over a hundred activities going on throughout the facility.
  •  In addition to the activities on each unit, there are the many clubs residents can join such as the ever popular Cooking Club, Adapted Sports Club, Art Appreciation Club, Book Club, Gardening Club, and the Pinnochle Club.
  • One of the biggest events of the year is the annual Senior Prom, which is held off-site.  Residents “dress to the nines” and enjoy an evening out with food, live music, and excitement.
