Our hairdresser is available Wednesday mornings from 7:00 – 11:00.  Appointments can be “long standing” or you can book special appointments by asking either recreation or nursing to enter it on her calendar.

ACTIVITIES OF DAILY LIVING PROGRAM

Under the guidance of a professional physiotherapist and occupational therapist, we are able to provide a recreational exercise program.  These one to one exercises are provided five days a week.  We do a daily exercise circle, weights, pulleys, stationary cycling, active and passive exercises, as well as one on one exercises as per physio instructions.  This program also provides valuable time in getting to know each individual on a personal note.
