We call them senior living communities for a reason! When seniors are active and engaged with others, their quality of life increases. Even though our seniors can enjoy the privacy of their own suites, there is always something social going on to engage and encourage them. Some of our favourite social activities include:
Everyone loves a great party and we like to have as many as possible! Our activity teams go out of their way to create highly-anticipated and memorable occasions. From sock hops to birthday teas, there is always something fun to be part of!
These daily gatherings are opportunities for our seniors to get to know and socialize with each other. In our Independent Living, Assisted Living and Residential Care communities, which provide daily home-cooked meals, careful attention is given to ensuring food is both nutritious and equally delicious. In our Senior Housing rental communities, Residents regularly organize potluck dinners and catered meals for special occasions. For many seniors, eating well and with others is a pivotal turning point in their overall wellness.
Regular bus trips to a mall, museum or sightseeing are always a highlight for our seniors! There’s never an empty seat on the bus, and the chance to see and experience new things encourages lively conversations and social interactions.
Community interaction and engagement provides incredible benefits to everyone. Volunteers assist in day-to-day activities, special events and outings. Their contributions have a tremendous impact on the lives of our seniors.
