Virtual Social Recreation


In light of everyone being affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, here at ASLM we wanted to provide some ways for people living with dementia and their care partners to stay positive and engaged!

Visit our website each day for different recreation activities and videos from our staff here at ASLM. 

We want to continue to support our clients even when we can’t see you everyday.  We have put together a wide range of activities to keep you movin’ and groovin’ in the safety of your own home. 

We hope you’ll join us!

Activities

Monday

  • Stay In Touch Submission: 
    Here’s Navah playing the Piano!

    “Hope this music helps brighten your day! This piece is called “Waltz”” by Rebikov. I’ve played piano my whole life and have taken lessons up to my Grade 9 Royal Conservatory of Music, Piano examinations. I just graduated from Western University with a Bachelor’s degree in Medical Sciences. I usually volunteer weekly at a retirement home to perform for the residents on the piano, so I’m happy to keep up this tradition, virtually!”

Weekend

Pick your favourite activities from the week, or any that you missed! Come back on Monday for a new set of activities for the week.

Want to access last week’s activities?

Head to our Virtual Social Recreation Archive.

Please Note:

We ask that you make sure when you participate virtually in exercise programs you take care to create a place that is clutter-free and safe for you. Make sure you have proper footwear and the area is clear.

Also, please only participate as much as your body feels comfortable – this is intended to be a program to gently move your body – so don’t push yourself beyond what feels okay. If you’d rather not participate but want to just be here and watch, that is totally fine too!

Do you want a way to “Stay in Touch” or feel connected from the comfort of your home?  Check out this initiative!  Stay in Touch is a website where people can submit creative, fun, and engaging videos to bring a smile to viewers faces.  Let us know what you think!

Why is Social Recreation Important?

Social stimulation for people living with dementia and their care partner is important as it promotes and enhances social connections, engagement and intellectual stimulation. This is especially important during social distancing when everyone is more at risk of isolation.
