Recreation Therapy

The Therapeutic Recreation department focuses on individual needs while respecting freedom of choice. Residents may participate as much or as little as they wish. Families and friends are welcomed and encouraged to participate in activities. Programme activities are also offered on scheduled weekends and evenings throughout the month. Each Resident Home Area receives their own activity calendar outlining the programmes and services offered that month

An activity schedule is created monthly and posted in the resident home areas. Each neighbourhood features programmes and events that respond to the care level of the residents who reside in the area.
