Dear Residents and Family Members,
The holiday season is upon us; this means cooler weather, cozy programs and plenty of hot coco! November was a busy month for SkyPointe! Residents and staff honored veterans with a Remembrance Day ceremony, the SkyPointe Bowling league started up and is in full swing with residents throwing spares and strikes in the Atrium and of course, our holiday decorations have been set-up throughout the building!
December is a special month for the recreation department. The programs and activities schedule are a little different than other months. Some of the special programs you may see are holiday parties for each neighbourhood, a special tree lighting ceremony in the atrium, our annual holiday market on December 4th and SkyPointe’s first Elegant Dining Experience on December 19th for residents and family members.
AgeCare would like to remind residents and family members who are decorating their rooms for the holidays to practice safe decorating! Do not over crowd outlets with cords, do not place flammable material on lights and any other item that can potentially produce heat and clear cords from all walk ways.
Often with the holidays, we see an increase of the flu. Remember to practice proper hand hygiene and if you are feeling under the weather, stay home, rest up, and come in for a visit when you feel better.
The fitness studio on the main floor will be closed during the first few weeks of December. We are adding to the room to enable residents to live a healthier lifestyle! Residents can still participate in fitness classes in the Atrium and on their neighbourhood.
Please, take a look at our online December newsletter and program calendars for upcoming programs and events. If you have any questions or concerns, please, contact (587)619-6317! Or stop by the recreation office. Our general office hours are 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday to Saturday.
Looking back on the past few months, we have had a busy and successful year. Thank you, to everyone for their kind patience and support. Everyone in the recreation department cannot wait to see what the New Year brings!
From all of us at SkyPointe, I would like to wish everyone a safe, and happy Holidays!
Marlee Dukart, Recreation Therapy Manager
