Therapeutic Recreation

February is our favourite month as we celebrate & honour the specialty of Therapeutic Recreation!

We focus what makes each resident happiest, living a life with passion & purpose.

This week’s highlights include options of Fitness, Walking Club, Brain Games, Bingo, That Makes Sense, Catholic Mass, Crafters Corner, Punjabi Social, News & Views & Men’s Social.

Meaningful programs are inspired by current resident interests and assessment of each resident’s abilities.

Discover possibilities in your talent- age does not define you!

FUN knows no age!  Laughter & meaningful purpose = JOY


Therapeutic Recreation is a profession which recognizes leisure, recreation and play as integral components of quality of life. 

Our focus is on innovating, discovering and creating opportunities for each individual, that elevate & stimulate

the domains of physical, cognitive, social, emotional & spiritual experiences. 

Mindful programs are meaningful, purposeful and enhance the lives of individuals in their  life’s continuum. 

At our foundation, is a focus on one’s independence but with support and tools for each success.   The JOY factor!

Tracking participation and as part of Care Planning specific to each individual allows us to focus on best interests of each.

As we have adapted our programs due to Covid Prevention Safety Plans, programs have transitioned to hosting groups

of maximum 5 participants or 1:1s, and we continue to welcome entertainers and our music therapists virtually. 

Delivering Experiences Makes Life Better

As a team, we have adapted to the unprecedented ‘art of visitations’, coordinating schedules and experiences,

and it continues to be an honour to connect with each of you.
