Participate in our engaging activities

Our inviting main hall has high ceilings, plenty of natural light and comfortable seating by the fireplace, so it’s a popular destination for all kinds of gatherings. Elsewhere in the residence, meet a neighbour for a game of billiards or chess, or stay active in one of our senior-friendly exercise classes. Learn a new skill at a culinary demonstration in our well-equipped country kitchen, or take part in an arts and crafts workshop. Some of our most welcome visitors are live entertainers featuring a range of musical and dance styles, and many of our residents also look forward to scheduled pet visits or spiritual discussions. Our day trips are an excellent opportunity to visit venues and attractions in and around Sudbury: we might head out to try a new restaurant, do a little shopping, or see seasonal displays like holiday lights or fall colours.
