Our philosophy at Suffield by the River is that just because you have gotten older does not mean you stop having fun or challenging your mind.  Grand Vista’s Recreation Director, Donna Skwira, embodies this philosophy.  Donna joined River’s Watch as Recreation Director in May 2016.  She graduated from Holyoke Community College in 2014 with an Associates Degree in Arts, Fitness, and Nutrition.  Donna has worked in memory care since 2012 as a Certified Dementia Practitioner.  In July 2018, Donna became Recreation Director in charge of Grand Vista in addition to River’s Watch.

Special monthly activities on the recreation calendar include a support group by VITAS, enrichment and gardening lectures, pet therapy, Reiki sessions, and wellness seminars.  These activities along with bingo, blackjack, poker, trivia, Wii bowling, and weekly entertainment help to keep Suffield by the River’s residents entertained, challenged, and happy.
