At The Gateway we believe that physical and mental activity is vital in improving and maintaining the quality of life of our seniors. Keeping active also provides many measurable health benefits. We customize our activities program to our current resident population. While providing entertaining and stimulating activities, we are also providing a means for our residents to maintain or even improve their physical, social and cognitive skills.
Check out our activities calendar for more information about the specific activities, outings, and entertainment. As always, we invite family members to join us anytime!
Resident Groups & Games
We host special resident groups to help your loved one enjoy their hobbies and meet other residents with similar interests who enjoy the same things they do. Resident groups include: Crib Club, Choir, Caring Hearts Knitting/Crochet Club, Bingo, Resident Council, and many more!
Music & Entertainment
Who doesn’t love to tap their feet or listen to a familiar tune? At The Gateway, we invite many musical guests to join us and speak universal language of music. Whether your loved one enjoys the classical styling of the piano, a barbershop quartet, the happy melody of an Accordion, or Rock n’Roll to the 50’s tunes, our entertainers provide something for everyone! We also enjoy special event evening dances.
Reminiscing & Cognitive Activities
Recalling specific memories is a very crucial element in cognitive advancement for you or your loved one. Our activities program ensures that our residents are given ample stimulation to remember the good old days, and share their life stories with us. Current event discussions allow us to better understand each individual’s point of view, and word games allow the residents to draw upon knowledge obtained throughout their life.
Art & Sensory Activities
We like to discover everyone’s creative side with our art and sensory activities. Our residents are able to express themselves through their creativity and use their senses to trigger specific memories. Whatever the outcome, it’s always enjoyable to learn more about one another.
Everyone loves the great outdoors, and our residents are no exception. Each month we pack our calendar full of events to take advantage of the beauty of the season. Whether it be snacks on the patio, gardening or nature walks, we invite everyone to join us for a breath of fresh air.
It is important to the gateway that our residents stay connected to their community. The Gateway schedules outings to places such as Community Centre Luncheons with Entertainment, Casinos, Theatre plays, Restaurants, Shopping centers, Movie theaters, and many other points of interest around town.
