The health benefits of recreation and active living to our residents and community become an important component in the quality of life to our residents. Recreation activities provide opportunities to build social skills and cultivate self-sufficiency and leadership abilities as well as build a sense of place and community pride. The benefits of recreation affect our physical and emotional wellbeing, as we become more active we rely less on medical and social services.
