Musical Events: We pride ourselves on the number and variety of weekly musical events.
We are so pleased to have music therapists who engage our residents in a variety of therapeutic programs, including one-to-one sessions, small and large groups programs as well as leading two resident choirs. Residents who love to sing meet weekly to practice for their upcoming concert. The two resident choirs perform four times a year for the other residents and family members. Recently the choirs have been joined by the children from the onsite daycare for the first part of their choir rehearsal.
We are also delighted to be able to offer our residents a monthly classical music program presented by professional musicians through the Health Arts Society.
Many talented local musicians and choirs are also engaged on a regular basis giving residents the opportunity to enjoy a variety of music such as old-time and seasonal favourites, country & western, Elvis and folk.
Dance is another activity residents thoroughly enjoy watching, and sometimes they can even participate! For example, Hawaiian dancers help us “Beat the Winter Blues” in January, young Irish dancers entertain us for St. Patrick’s Day and on Father’s Day, the tradition is to have a belly dancer.
