LIFESTYLE CHOICES

We offer a wide range of social, cultural and spiritual activities to suit any lifestyle. Our residents are encouraged to learn new things, and have new experiences, while continuing to enjoy their usual activities.

It is important to us to provide you with activities that matter to you and that you can indulge in with friends and family.

Maintaining an active social life is vital to maintaining mental, physical and spiritual health. Our social activities are an opportunity for some light-hearted fun, to strengthen and create friendships and maybe have a laugh or two.

After all, as Charles Dickens wrote in A Christmas Carol, “There is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humour.”

Social activities include

  • Poetry club
  • Arts & crafts, such as painting, quilting, embroidery
  • Music & entertainment
  • Karaoke
  • Bus excursions for regular resident outings
  • Memory quiz games
  • Cooking
  • Food related festivities and events, where families are invited
