Culture and Fun

The Rivabella care home is peaceful and quiet, and at the same time, a wealth of social activity is possible. We organize games and entertainments as well as offering opportunities for culture and fun, including concerts, courses, games, and various types of events, always considering the cultural and recreational needs of our guests.

Like physical well-being needs physical activity, the brain also needs to be stimulated constantly to keep active, and that is why we start from this assumption to develop all of the recreational activities in the care home.

The aim is to promote social exchanges and self-determination for our residents, making a dedicated entertainments team available. Through a wide range of fun activities, this team works hard every day to promote a stimulating, peaceful and welcoming environment. We also organise opera recitals and modern art shows, which integrate perfectly into the already wide offer of museums, exhibitions, and concerts available in the area around our facility.
Our recreational activities involve different areas (cognitive, motor, play, and spiritual) and are organised into groups according to the capabilities of the guests.

The cultural and recreational activities available in the Rivabella care home

With a dedicated team, we accompany our guests in their choices, offering them the possibility to experiment, develop a passion for, and discover the recreational activities that appeal to them the most.

Our specialist staff is always open to new ideas, and works constantly to pay particular attention to the needs of each single resident.
We don’t force our interactions, but rather we leave you the complete freedom to change your mind and your interests so as to encourage your curiosity.

In our oasis of peace and calm, you will find the ideal atmosphere to dedicate your free time to an activity. Entertainment staff are there for residents every day, with games, movies, lectures, debates, singing, music, manual work and activities to maintain body-mind harmony, such as gentle gymnastics and yoga. We also organise trips in Malcantone, to Lugano or boat trips on the lake, plus, between the season, weeks in the mountains or by the sea.

Art and music
During the winter months, recreational activities are held in the orangery, where we also organise concerts, exhibitions and other cultural activities. In this splendid setting or in the park overlooking the lake, there may be music, weekly or seasonally, or art exhibitions in what, as Art Gallery Rivabella, has become a genuine exhibition centre for the region.

Other activities
We organise birthday parties for residents, lakeside buffets, and celebrations on the occasion of special events. We also offer regular religious services for those who wish to attend, presided over by either a Catholic priest of Protestant pastor.

Surrounding area...
From the care home, it is possible to take walks around the lake or in the surrounding mountains, as well as to hire private boats for trips. Golfing enthusiasts can enjoy Golf Club Lugano or Minigolf Caslano, both near to the care home.
