The Lifecare Centre Recreation department strives to enhance the lives of our residents; cognitively, psychosocially, spiritually, physically and emotionally. Through Recreational programs the residents gain self-confidence, and have the opportunity to create and foster new friendships. Recreation offers our residents the ability to maintain their independence and individuality and gives them the ability to maintain control and make decisions for themselves. Through our Recreation services our Residents are able to pursue old leisure interests and find new ones.
