Sherbrooke offers support to our residents in every way that we can, including therapies. Whether people are dealing with a physical disability, mental illness, or looking for a way to improve their emotional and spiritual health; occupational therapy, physiotherapy, and music therapy all play important roles.
Occupational therapy is a form of therapy for people dealing with physical or mental illness, and encourages rehabilitation through the performance of activities required in daily life.
We problem solve with residents, families, and caregivers for solutions that allow elders to enjoy life, and promote and maintain resident independence through activity, equipment, and adaptations as guided by our residents’ goals for everyday living.
Physiotherapy treats injuries or physical limitations by engaging residents in various exercises.
Working on strength, balance, and endurance, we engage residents in fun activities to help them achieve their desires for a full and abundant life, while giving them the ability to live safely and independently.
Music therapy is the skillfull use of music and musical elements to promote, maintain, and restore mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual health.
Alive Inside – a program for residents living with dementia – and the Young Country Rebels, among others, add to the quality of elders lives and help to create a warm and inviting environment for residents, families, staff, and volunteers. Music also builds relationships, which facilitate contact, interaction, self awareness, learning, self-expression, communication, and personal development.
We are passionate about music at Sherbrooke and you will hear the sounds of voices and instruments in the halls, the spiritual centre, the Tawaw, and the neighbourhoods throughout our community. To learn more about music and art at Sherbrooke, visit our Kaleidoscope site.
