Meeting your ‘kneads’

March 2021

The approach to wellness at Allium Care Suites deliberates on therapeutic activities that promote cognitive and emotional well-being, specifically tailored to individual needs and interests. Sensory activities awaken memories, reduce passivity and help elders feel more engaged with life.

Our resident immersed in the therapeutic activity of dough kneading in the healing environment of our dementia household.

Chair Chi is a gentle form of exercise designed to help elders experience the benefits of traditional Tai Chi in the comfort and safety of a chair.
