Living with Purpose
We encourage our residents to engage, enjoy, express, and live as full, independent and active a life as possible with us. Our dedicated activity coordinators and social care practitioners develop an extensive weekly calendar of activities, based on residents’ expressed preferences, and tailored to individual needs.
We provide support and stimulation through a blend of activities and therapies that enrich the body, mind and spirit. On a typical week residents enjoy music, singing and dance activities, light exercise, games, gardening, excursions, beauty pampering, and social gatherings. Residents like to spend time pursuing their own individual hobbies or interests, as well as join in on group activities in our communal and quiet lounges.
Our activities programming is designed to bring together residents, staff, family and friends – and to turn each day into an opportunity for our residents to Live With Purpose.
