Recreational Therapy Under the Sun

By Elizabeth Roldan, Administrative Assistant

Knowing that recreational therapy has wide-ranging positive impacts on the physical and mental health of our clients, a group of staff accompanied by Lymarie Rodríguez, Chair of Puerto Rico’s Community Action Council (CAC), organized a beach day for our transitional housing clients at Guara Bi – Caguas. At one of the best beaches on the east coast, our clients had the opportunity to enjoy outdoor recreational activities, board games, conversation with their peers, and a delicious lunch while listening to the sound of the sea. For the recovery process of our participants, this type of outdoor activity is great to help them find a state of relaxation.
