Activities for Everyone’s Interests

Fulfilling residents’ and participants’ needs

Activities

A great variety of activities are offered every day at Shalom Village. Our goal is to meet the social, recreational, entertainment, creative, and spiritual interests of our residents and participants. No matter where their interests lie, most people will find something they enjoy.

Our Community Centre team offers programs to small groups and individuals, as well as larger group activities. Creative programs might include flower-arranging, pottery classes, fabric painting and woodshop.

We have an active Glee Club and the Shalom Village Players have staged a number of popular shows. Games like Scrabble and Bingo are popular with some residents, while others prefer fitness activities like Stretch & Strengthen and Chair-dancing.

Spiritual activities

Founded by the Jewish community for the benefit of all seniors, Shalom Village operates within the context of Jewish Values. Participants and residents of all faiths and backgrounds are welcomed and celebrated. Spiritual opportunities are provided for a number of religions.

Monthly Shabbat services are observed in our synagogue, as well as non-denominational church services. We have a Rabbi on hand to offer comfort and guidance to residents, family members, and staff of all faiths.

If you’d like to learn more about spiritual opportunities specific to your faith, we’d be delighted to speak with you.

Off-site activities

The MilliMobile gives our residents access to a number of outside activities including shopping, community events, casino outings, or a simple drive in the country.
