Activities

The heart of daily life at The Hickman is our vibrant resident activities program. We strive to engage our residents’ minds, bodies and spirits to enhance not only their individual lives, but the heart of the entire Hickman family. Leading the fun in the Activities Department is a full time Community Life Manager, four Community Life Associates, and many volunteers from all walks of life who share their precious time and talents with our residents. A weekly listing of our activities can be found here.
