Our Activities are based on Resident interests. Shortly after Admission to our home, a questionnaire will be completed to solicit the new resident's recreational interests.
An interest survey is also conducted at various times throughout the year. Residents are also encouraged to attend Resident Council meetings to express their satisfaction or concerns with activities or any other program or service the facility offers.
We give our residents the opportunity to lead a very full and happy life here at Elmwood Care. We believe that you are never too old to enjoy life and have fun!
