Healthcare & Wellness Services
It’s not just your heart and muscles that stand to benefit from an aquafit class – working out in water is fantastic for your internal organs and lymphatic system, and the body is refreshed rather than exhausted. Working out in water also provides equal resistance through your full range of motion which helps your balance, it strengthens muscles, improves cardiovascular fitness, and your qualified instructor will offer plenty of modifications to increase or decrease the difficulty of the moves so you can always go at your own pace.

Proper footcare is essential for healthy, happy feet. Footcare is recommended for those who are diabetic, have poor circulation, have painful corns or calluses or those who may want a professional to care for your feet. A session includes a complete foot assessment, nail trimming and filing, callus and corn care, a foot massage, and personal teachings about your footcare needs from a Registered Nurse, Advanced Footcare.
Massage therapy is the manipulation of the soft tissues of the body, including skin, muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints, for the purpose of decreasing pain, inflammation stress and muscular tension. As well, massage therapy helps to increase circulation, range of motion, relaxation and a sense of well-being. Our Massage Therapists are licensed and members of the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario; they work with participants to develop a plan based on their needs, and offer treatments in the participants’ suite if it is more comfortable for them.
Music & Memory
We are proud to offer our residents MUSIC & MEMORY, a program dedicated to brightening the lives of seniors living with Alzheimer’s or dementia.
With the use of iPods, we are able to tap into those deep memories not lost by dementia, and exercise the mind. The program also helps seniors with struggling with physical barriers, depression, and more. MUSIC & MEMORY enables seniors to become social, to converse, and to be present.
