Active Minds and Bodies

Being physically active and socially engaged throughout your life has many benefits, especially as you grow older. Our dedicated Lifestyle Team conducts programs to ensure you are intellectually stimulated, with sophisticated software programs that are specially designed for seniors and can be personalised to suit your individual needs. This cognitive stimulation leads to beneficial relaxation by encouraging the mind, memories and old experiences to lead to new inspiration.

Computers are available and specialised tutorial programs assist you in staying connected with friends, family and special interests. This provides the opportunity for residents to utilise information technology and social networking tools to promote and maintain social contact. Sensory enriched activities are offered to stimulate sight, hearing, smell and touch for those who have deficits in this area. These specialised activities are conducted on a one on one basis and within group environments, to suit individual needs. As you grow older, an active lifestyle is more important than ever.
