Recreational Programs

A supportive and welcoming community awaits you at the Ukrainian Canadian Care Centre. Our highly qualified, energetic, and compassionate Recreation Team offer programs to meet the physical, cognitive, emotional, social, and spiritual needs of all of the residents. Each of our residents receives an individual plan of care including many social and therapeutic activities.

Residents are always busy, if they choose to be. A representative from the recreation department greets each resident at the time of admission to discuss personal interests and hobbies. While at the home, residents can be involved in their favorite pastimes and meet others with similar interests. Arts and crafts, physical fitness programs, discussion groups and many other activities are all coordinated through the recreation department. There are many social events, such as ice cream socials, cookouts, monthly birthday parties, and more. Outings to places of interest are among the many stimulating activities available.

Recreation Therapy programs are also offered and are specifically designed to help residents with cognitive and/or physical impairments build on existing abilities and strengths, increase self-esteem, and function at their highest possible level following the approach of Montessori Based Dementia Programming (MBDP). These programs are flexible to the uniqueness of each resident and take place on a one-to-one basisĀ or small group basis. To ensure their needs are met, our Recreation Team identifies each resident’s interests and level of ability to help match them to programs they would enjoy and benefit from.

Programs include: exercise, arts and craft, music therapy, arts and craft, bingo, baking, religious services, bus outing, ice cream parlor, sensory stimulation, sing song, Ukrainian and Canadian cultural celebrations, discussion groups, gardening and more.
