The Recreation Department at Pine Meadow offers a wide range of activities and outings for residents to participate in. We offer exercise classes, led by our Physiotherapy Assistant 4 days a week as well as a Saturday morning class facilitated by Activity Staff. We have regular programs offered each morning, afternoon and evening Monday through Sunday, of various domains ensuring a wide range of Physical, Emotional, Spiritual, Social and Intellectual stimulation and opportunities.
Local bands provide Musical Entertainment 1-2 times a week for our residents. The Activity staff engage residents in a variety of word games, bingo and Montessori interventions to enhance resident’s cognitive skills. Physical games are offered, such as beanie pitch, horseshoes and bowling to name a few favorites. We enjoy having socials and parties to celebrate holidays, birthdays or just about any occasion will do!
Pre-Covid, Pine Meadow welcomed the "Local Men's Club" and the “Golden Girls”, groups of local men and women to come by for coffee and to socialize with the residents that live here, each coming once a month. This was a great way to stay in touch with friends in the Community as well as our trips to Drop-In Lunch held at the Lion's Hall which we attend twice a month. Both of these programs are in coordination with Land O'Lakes Community Services. We are eager to continue these programs when it is safe to do so.
Pine Meadow offers Ecumenical Church Services and /or Bible Studies every Wednesday and Sunday mornings, some led by local Clergy and some by a resident Pastor and Activity Staff. Pastoral and Palliative visits are offered from local Clergy upon request. Pre-Covid, Memorial Services were held bi-annually.
The resident’s at Pine Meadow have the option of going on monthly outings. These trips accommodate wheelchairs as well. We have done everything from Thousand Island Tour to Bowling at Quinte Bowl. In the summer, we make sure we fit in boating, fishing and picnics at the beach trips. At Christmas, we do our annual Christmas Light's Tour as well as a shopping trip including a visit with Santa!
We always have a great time no matter what program were doing! Pine Meadow is very fortunate for all our Volunteers who come to assist with or provide all of these wonderful programs.
