Activities that Meet Everyone's Needs
At Metta Lifestyles, we are proud to offer retirement communities that bring out the best in our residents. Our respectful, dedicated staff work tirelessly to create an environment that lets every resident stand out and be appreciated for their individuality.
There are various activities scheduled throughout the day including, dog visits, chair yoga, bingo and more.
We want to plan for today and be prepared for tomorrow. Innovation allows us to provide the best programs, services, and facilities to meet the needs of today’s residents. Some of our innovations include our:
Art focused on abstract pictures that evoke memories of nature and childhood, through the use of a strong colour palette. This helps residents feel youthful and cope with memory conditions.
Montessori Care that encompasses all of our activities and programs. This results in greater engagement of the senses and positive emotions. One great example of implementing Montessori Care in our homes is the Music Project. Overwhelming evidence suggests that residents have an improvement in their quality of life as they listen to familiarized music on a personalized playlist. For more information about this project, please visit Alzheimer Toronto's Music Project.
Pet Therapy that reduces anxiety and stress, encourages communication, improves mood and lowers blood pressure.
Aquatic Program that features an aquarium near the dining room at Greenview Residence whose colours, motion and sounds encourage healthy eating. Thanks to this, seniors suffering from dementia show an increase in healthy body weight and require fewer nutritional supplements. Our reef aquarium stimulates interaction between elderly residents and employees, as they make their way into our dining hall. Click here for more information about the benefits.
