We offer a variety of recreational and therapeutic activities to meet the diverse needs of our residents.

This includes specialized fitness programming, art and music therapy, as well as activities to engage the mind and maintain social interactions.

Our social activities include:

Fitness Programs: Regular chair exercise classes are held throughout the facility. In addition, we offer balance and strength classes, chair basketball, chair yoga and a stretching/resistance class.

Telling Stories and Reminiscing: Creative storytelling through reminiscing.

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.

Bingo: Bingo is immensely popular and is offered at least once a week in all areas.

Food Club: Residents get together to socialize and taste something new.

Celebrating Birthdays: Once a month, birthdays are celebrated on each floor with a party and entertainment. Residents also enjoy celebrating their birthday with a special meal.

Ice Cream Socials: This is always a hit with our residents, especially on a nice warm summer day on the patio.

Pet Therapy: Trained volunteers bring certified therapy pets into the facility to interact with the residents. We also have a resident cat up on our 3rd floor. In addition, well-behaved pets are always welcome to visit.

Gardening: Resident “green thumbs” are always welcome to help staff on our 5th-floor garden! We grow a few of our own vegetables such as tomatoes, kale, radishes, zucchini and a variety of herbs which our cooks use in their soups and main entrees.

Arts and Crafts: We have a small knitting and crocheting circle as well as painting and drawing for those interested.
