Social, creative and intellectual stimulation are key to a resident's emotional and physical well-being. Therapeutic Recreation programs – exercise and sensory programs, arts and crafts, gardening, games, music, tai chi, discussion, etc., are designed for each resident's individual ability, providing an opportunity for self-expression and encouraging social interaction. A computer center, live entertainment, clubs, religious services and wellness programs are part of the recreation program that promotes an enriched, healthy leisure lifestyle.

The Therapeutic Recreation department also coordinates a variety of other services - beauty parlor, day trips, educational and cultural programming, pet visits, ipad/internet/skype accessibility amongst others.

The Recreation Department supervises the Resident Council where residents have an opportunity to voice their opinions and make recommendations regarding their day-to-day living at Kings Harbor.
