Each of the Residents in our senior living communities brings with him or her a wealth of experience and skill. We encourage our Residents to use those skills whenever possible. Our seniors volunteer in their retirement communities by managing the libraries, opening the General Store and serving each other coffee and tea.
The spirit of generosity is alive and well in our communities! Residents regularly use their skills to help others. In Kelowna, seniors from a number of our retirement communities fundraised to purchase a boat for special outings on the lake. Those living at Maple Towers collected 450 pounds of food for the local food bank. Shannon Oaks Residents sponsor a child in Rwanda and provide clean drinking water for an entire village. And in every community, Residents are active in responding to local and international needs.
Other vocational wellness initiatives offered as part of our commitment to holistic senior care include:
- Talent shows
- Resident newsletters
- International celebrations
- Discussion groups
- Volunteering in local schools
- Creative expressions through art
- Resident volunteer opportunities
