Activities and Education

It is important to keep physically and emotionally healthy as much as possible during cancer treatment. We offer some of the following physical, educational and fun activities:

Aquatic Program: 

Warm water pool classes for adults (arthritis, low impact, moderate and cardio) are offered in the Sticht Center.  Ai Chi, a form of aquatic exercise, is also open to everyone at Salemtowne Retirement Community on Mondays and Wednesdays at 1:00pm.  Pre-registration is required for all classes.  To register or to receive more information, contact Debbie Drayton at (336) 713-8082 or email: ddrayton@wakehealth.edu.

Healing Voices: 

Healing Voices is a group of Medical Center employees and friends who enjoy singing and contributing to the healing arts.  They perform twice a month on various patient unites in the hospital, once at noon on the first Wednesday of each month and once at 4pm on the third Wednesday of each month.  Please contact Gretchen Bayne with any questions at (336) 713-8002 or gbayne@wakehealth.edu.

Art Kits: 

Engaging in art during times of stress, depression, pain, boredom and isolation can help alleviate these symptoms and create positive felling which aid in healing.  Arts & Health provides opportunities for patients to receive an art kit that may include the following: coloring books, journals, colored pencils, origami, watercolors, zentangles, pattern lessons and brain teasers.  Please contact Gretchen Bayne for more information at (336)713-8002 or gbayne@wakehealth.edu
