Cultural entertainment in the care home

Rivabella is a quiet care home, where peace of tranquility are to be found. However we think that social interaction and culture are also fundamental; therefore we strive to entertain our guests with social events, including concerts, art exhibitions and performing arts. The surrounding areas of Ticino and Lugano also offer many museums and events.

Cultural events and other activities in the retirement home are supported by an entertainment team, creating a leisurely and welcoming environment. We try to promote social interaction and self-determination while keeping guests amused. The entertainment team is open to suggestions and also strives to fulfill individual needs.
