Breaking isolation

Community events give the opportunity to overcome isolation and strengthen social networks. When we plan the events, we make sure everyone feels welcomed to participate: families with children just as much as residents who live alone or elderly residents who often feel left out. The events feature such components as concerts, activities related to seasonal festivities, massages and light exercise sessions provided by physiotherapists, to name only a few.
