The staff of Prairie Pines Lodge provides an on-going and meaningful program of activities for those in our assisted living wing, as well as for our independent residents.  Our goal is creating an environment the enriches the daily lives of all our residents.  Our residents have the freedom to choose how to spend their days.  Here at Prairie Pines, we provide a monthly activity calendar that includes the times and dates that our activities will be offered, if they choose to join in on the fun!  Some of our regular activities include weekly bingo games with prizes, exercise classes, crafts, sing-a-long's and so much more.  We also offer special group activities as well as general activities that reflect the interest and needs of our residents.  We are always open to suggestions and are willing to provide activities in order to meet the needs of all our residents. The activity calendar must include special groups as well as general activities that reflect the interests and needs of these residents. Independent residents are always welcome at any of the activities presented.

Here at Prairie Pines we love any excuse to celebrate!  Once a month we hold a birthday party to celebrate all our residents' birthdays, offering cake and ice cream as well as live music.  During the summer time we enjoy taking field trips up through the Black Hills, taking our residents to the Post Playhouse, as well as having our annual 4th of July BBQ to celebrate with our community.  We also love to celebrate the holidays with special gatherings and fun activities for the whole family.  We encourage family and friends to participate in all our activities. 

Assisted living residents have priority in the planning and implementation of all activities.  However, we encourage those living in the independent apartments to participate in any and all activities of interest.  When trips are planned, those in the assisted living wing have first priority and, as space is available, we encourage all residents to participate.
