Research has shown that the power of music has the ability to open minds, memories, and awaken the being, especially impacting those with dementia and complex behaviours.
Moving to a long term care centre can be a challenging time for residents and families. Often there is a severe sense of loss: losing one’s home, privacy, identity, freedom and control. It is especially at this time that spiritual care is needed.
Recreational, Therapeutic and Occupational Activities and Outings
Our residents look forward to the many activities, exercise programs and outings provided with the help of your donations. We are able to purchase specialized equipment, bring in entertainment, hold pub nights, have movie afternoons, fairs, barbeques, exercise programs, arts and crafts, and special outings.
As the needs and the mobility of our resident’s change after moving into one of our care homes, equipment needs must keep up.
