Therapeutic Recreation Services
Rosedale Home uses a therapeutic approach to recreation and leisure programming. This approach is rooted in the goal of honoring each person’s story and empowering them to make their own choices about their lifestyle. Programs are offered from a person-centred approach, providing meaningful engagement, and promoting their own personal purpose in life.
Helping our residents live better means engaging and involving them in everything we do. Rosedale Home provides social and recreational services seven days a week – including holidays.
