Lifestyles & Activities
Our programming is designed around you, your choices, and your interests. Our approach is designed around nurturing your body, mind and spirit in the ways you like best.
Do you like to spend your afternoons reading? Do you have a talent for teaching others? Would you like to get back to volunteering? We’re here to reconnect you to past hobbies and to help you fulfill lifelong interests and dreams. We also look forward to introducing you to some things you've never considered before.
Each day, you will have the option of participating in a range of free activities, such as learning seminars, visiting performers, fitness classes, and wellness programs. Or, you can join an organized outing with transportation — from live performances, to local museums, to shopping trips and seasonal celebrations in the community.
In addition, we’re proud to offer Sienna Signature Services, which can only be found at Sienna Senior Living retirement residences. These programs offer exciting and innovative opportunities for residents to pursue new learning opportunities, get involved, remain active (physically, socially, and mentally), and give back to the local community.
Want a techno boost? Cyber-Seniors is a community partnership program, where high school students from the local area teach residents how to use technology. The program is tailored to your needs, interests, and comfort level, and can go over everything from navigating the desktop, finding your childhood home on Google Maps, to using YouTube, Social Media, email and more! Now you’ll be able to stay in touch with family and friends around the world, do a video call with your children and grandchildren, and explore new interests online.

Creating Communities of Learning
Ready to learn something new? Offered in collaboration with the Centre for Elder Research at Sheridan College, Creating Communities of Learning is a unique learning experience. Practicum students from universities and colleges host virtual classrooms in many of our residences across Canada. The focus is on learning and education, not computer skills, so it doesn’t matter if you’ve never used a computer before. By creating a national family of participants from all of our residences, connected via online classrooms, learning becomes a uniquely social experience that breaks the bounds of geography.
