How we help enrich lives
If we are going to help our residents live better, then it is our responsibility to offer them every opportunity to be actively engaged and involved. At Extendicare Elmview, we provide social and recreational services seven days a week - including holidays. These services are designed to meet the physical, emotional, spiritual, and intellectual needs of our residents. All activities are developed, organized and led by qualified staff and we offer both group and individualized services to meet residents’ unique needs and circumstances. Examples of our recreational services and activities include:
- Birthday Tea: Every month we hold a Birthday Tea to celebrate the birthdays of the month with a cake and a chorus of ‘Happy Birthday to You”.
- Pub Night: We have a monthly Pub Night where residents and family members relax and socialize over a maximum of 2 drinks.
- Live Entertainment: At least 3 times a week we have live entertainment featuring a variety of performers from the community.
