Life Enrichment Activity Program (LEAP)

A trademarked program of the Jessie F. Richardson Foundation

COVID-19 will continue to be isolating for residents who are at high risk for contracting the virus. Be sure to visit the activities page for safe activities and tips. 

Physical distancing doesn’t mean there can’t be fun! Life Enrichment Coordinators are busy creating meaningful and entertaining activities for their communities! 

LEAP is a wellness program to help assisted living and other retirement community settings maximize residents’ physical and mental well-being. It combines professionally designed exercise programs with resources on health and wellness. LEAP is designed to give providers flexibility in choosing the level of LEAP programming offered.

We developed LEAP to make it easier for you to introduce a wellness program to the people you serve. It will help them:

• Feel better
• Look better
• Increase their mobility
• Reduce their risk of falls
• Improve their self-confidence
• Reduce stress
• Increase positive perception of quality of life
• Reduce illness and hospitalization

Who We Are

The Jessie F. Richardson Foundation (JFRF) has tackled issues impacting older adults for more than 15 years. At our core, JFRF works to improve conditions for vulnerable older adults in developing areas and the communities in which they live. Our goal is to help bridge the gap for older adults, families and communities as we support strategies to address the changing face of aging in Oregon and beyond.
