How we help enrich lives
If we are going to help our residents live better, then it is our responsibility to offer them every opportunity to be actively engaged and involved. At Extendicare Moose Jaw, we provide social and recreational services seven days a week - including holidays. These services are designed to meet the physical, emotional, spiritual, and intellectual needs of our residents. All activities are developed, organized and led by qualified staff and we offer both group and individualized services to meet residents’ unique needs and circumstances. Examples of our recreational services and activities include:
Birthday Tea: Every month we hold a Birthday Tea to celebrate the birthdays of the month with a cake and a chorus of ‘Happy Birthday to You.”
Gardening Program: Residents assist with the flower gardens during the warmer months.
Outings: Once a month we take the residents out for coffee and pie and enjoy the local community offerings.
Live Entertainment: Once a week we have live entertainment featuring a variety of performers from the community.
Toast Night: Every night we have toast and a hot beverage.
Bake Club: Twice a month the residents enjoy baking and indulging in their homemade treats.
Manicures: Three times a month residents have a spa experience with relaxing manicures.
