Support Groups

Our Personal Touch Care Program is a holistic approach aimed at maintaining Residents well­ being and self-worth, It is a program that encompasses all aspects of our resident care.

While many think of "Activities" as pre-planned group events, such as exercise, crafts and music events where almost everyone participates, we think of "Activity" as everything the resident does throughout the day weather planned or spontaneous. This includes our residents’ personal care, conversations with others and even time alone. 

We spend a great deal of time assisting residents with personal care and the daily routines can become more meaningful when we are making sure we are using sensitivity and creativity to create the special Personal Care Moment.
