There are several additional services offered on a private basis by other professionals. These include a hairdresser who comes weekly, a chiropody service every 6 weeks, the supply and delivery of incontinence products, and a weekly (unescorted) shopping outing to Richdens Centre in Hillcrest. Alternatively, residents are welcome to hand shopping lists in and we will do the shopping for them and deliver it. We also have the mobile Municipal Library coming once a month, as well as a local Pastor who holds a small interdenominational service every week.
Daily walks and stimulation activities are carried out by the teams, and Sr. Shelley comes up with unique, fun weekly activities for our residents at The Annex in The Studios. In additions, we have volunteers and part time employees coming in to do the following:
- Arts and Crafts class once a week
- Bingo once a month
- Sensory stimulation activities twice a week for the frail residents and those with dementia
- Mosaic classes once a week for anyone interested in learning a new skill
- Informal pet therapy in the form of employees bringing their pets along for the residents to interact with and hold.
