Participate in our engaging activities

We are here to make your time as engaging and fun as possible. All of our recreational programming and social activities have been created to nourish you in every way: mind, body, and spirit. And yes, they’re always optional.

Looking for a good place to start? Our musically inclined residents love our live events, with gifted local singers and musicians frequently dropping by for shows. Or take part in a Rhythm ‘N’ Moves exercise class, our residents’ favourite way to stay fit, as instructors take you through a laughter- and music-filled routine. Try a painting class or a brain-sharpening FitMinds session, band together with like-minded volunteers to support a cause you love, or sit back and enjoy our engaging guest speaker series. We’ve even got a pool table—the perfect place to meet some new friends—and pet visits for our animal lovers!

If you’re looking to explore the region, you’ll love our regular day trips to local attractions, including Cambridge’s famous farmers’ market, museums, and other cultural destinations.
