Our recreation team focuses on improving the quality of life for all residents by providing a variety of meaningful recreation based opportunities. The focus is on areas of physical, emotional, social, and cognition. Residents have a range of opportunities to engage in programs that are of their interest and ability. We offer large, small and individual programming, as well as outings to areas in the community.
Recreational programming is offered every day of the week including evenings and weekends. We encourage you as well as your friends or family to participate and attend any of the programs offered throughout the Home. You can provide input on programming at the monthly Food and Activity Advisory meeting, as well as by contacting the Recreation Coordinator. A monthly activity calendar is provided to you. The calendar includes musical entertainment, special events and occasions, and theme days in the Home. Daily events are written on the activity white boards located on each Resident Home Area.
Recreation staff utilize an electronic recording system to ensure that the activities are meeting the resident’s needs and interests, as well as to monitor attendance and the recreation goals for each resident.
Special events such as teas, special holiday celebrations, summer BBQ’s and theme weeks are offered throughout the year to allow residents and their guests to enjoy special occasions together. A daily list of home-wide activities is posted on the white board in the main lobby.
Our volunteer team is made up of dedicated and caring individuals. Each volunteer is orientated, trained, and welcomed into our Home to support the many programs and services offered. For more information about our volunteers and their role in the Home or to apply to become a volunteer, contact the Volunteer Coordinator at 613-548-7222, ext. 3160.
