Keeping our residents active is something we pride ourselves on at the Blackburn Home. Activity leads not only to a sound physical lifestyle, but also to mental happiness. The goal of our program is to encompass a healthy body, mind and spirit lifestyle all in the company of enriching friendships.
Feeling energetic or looking to fit into that special dress for the grandkids upcoming school event? How about a low-impact aerobics class or some wellness and nutrition education?
And don’t forget to exercise the brain! Maybe some memory and word games with a few brain teasers are in order. Or maybe just a good conversation on current events or the “Good Old Days”!
Exercise, musical entertainment, student visits, table games, discussions, as well as favorites like BINGO and trivia, are just a few of our events that are scheduled weekly. Our monthly calendar changes to allow new programming to fit the requests of our residents. Holidays and Birthdays are celebrated in a special way too!

Looking for something a little quieter? Relax with a good book by the fireplace, or put together a puzzle in our library.
Feel the need to get out and see what’s changed in the area? Residents go on outings to enjoy Mill Creek Park, concerts at local venues or just to enjoy the fall leaves. Other regular outings include shopping trips, senior socials, luncheons and stops for special treats. We’ve even chartered a limousine for some really special day trips!
Some of the special events we host at the home include The Spring Bonnet Tea, a May celebration that has taken place for 75 years at The Blackburn Home. Finger sandwiches, fruit and cookies are served and a special presentation is enjoyed by our residents and their guests.
The “Family Picnic” is held each September with a menu and games that take on a fun theme in a large tent on the grounds of the Home.
A fabulous holiday party is especially enjoyable for our residents and their families and friends. Professional entertainers provide music, and the Home’s staff serves beautiful appetizers and cookies.
Our many events are designed to keep you actively immersed in friendships and fun!
