Enrichment Activities at Southgate Residence
Enjoy an Active Retirement

Our full-time Recreation Coordinator ensures that there’s never a dull moment for residents of Southgate. The following are just a few samples of activities that are planned for the enjoyment and stimulation of our residents.

Residents Monthly Meetings – our Residents Residents’ Meeting Council gives residents and their families a say in life at Southgate Residence


Fun and Fitness – a critical component of our daily schedule, these activities help residents maintain mobility and strength


Music and Entertainment – whether it’s a sing-along or movie night, our residents are delighted by the opportunity for merriment


Continuing Education – we welcome various community groups into Southgate Residence to provide presentations on topics such as the aging process and Alzheimer’s Disease


Community Outings – whether shopping or going to a concert, residents look forward to outings into the community to explore, socialize and feel more connected to the outside world


Crafts – there is always something exciting being created in our bright craft room, from exquisite oil and water colour paintings to lovingly created children’s items, which are sent overseas to those in need


Spiritual Gatherings – various churches and fellowship groups in our community visit weekly to provide services for our residents


Intergenerational Program – young people from our local Youth and Family Network are partnered with residents to play games, read or carry on a lively conversation


Gardening Club – residents enjoy nurturing the flowerpots around the residence and exercising their green thumbs in our raised garden bed, where they grow vegetables


ROMEO Club (Retired Older Men Eating Out) a socializing opportunity for the gentlemen of the home to get together for a meal, share stories and have some fun.


Resident Kitchen in the activity room kitchen,  the residents can bake, cook or create that special meal or dessert they enjoyed making for their family.  It is also an opportunity for resident to get to know each other better while baking bread or preparing Christmas cookies. 


Games – what better way to get to know your neighbours than playing a friendly game of shuffleboard, trying to sink your ball on the putting green or scoring the most points in a word search game. 


Knitting Club – the knitting and crotchet needles are flying fast and furious at Southgate.  Club members choose various charities to donate to and create beautiful afghans, baby blankets, hats, mittens and gloves and so much more.


Family Events – Annual Summer BBQ, Christmas Party and Christmas Bazaar.  The staff and residents look forward to these events where everyone has a good time.  Music, food and lots of laughs, just one of the many ways residents, their family and friends and the staff at Southgate share good times.


Theme Days – from Mardi Gras to Rocking to the 50’s to Halloween, theme days allow both residents and staff to share in the fun with good food, music, games and costumes.
