Recreation and Leisure Programs
The Program Department strives to provide high quality programs to meet the social, emotional, physical, cognitive and spiritual needs of all residents. Programs are offered throughout the week, weekends and during the evening. Programs come in many different forms, from individual visiting, to large group programs, both within the residence and the community. Examples of programs are one-to-one visits, picnics at Boyd Park, barbecues, gardening, exercise, baking, current events, musical entertainment, outings, tomato sauce and sausage making.
For details of
each programís time and location, monthly calendars are posted in each home
area on the resident information bulletin board. Some of the events and
activities have additional costs and the resident may be requested to help
offset the cost involved (i.e. theatre tickets, wheelchair bus trip). All
residents are encouraged to participate in programs of their choosing and to
help plan future events. Family members are always welcome.
Spiritual and Religious Care
We support each residentís right to celebrate
his or her faith and will attempt to meet the spiritual needs of our residents,
their families and staff members within their religious affiliation. Religious services
are held every other Wednesday and Rosary every Friday in the Chapel. Pastoral
visitors are available during times of illness, grief or palliative care. Memorial services are held for the
benefit of other residents, families and staff. The Pastoral Care Committee is
made up of local clergy and resident representatives along with our Spiritual
Care Coordinator who plans our Pastoral Care program.
