It has been several months now that we have been spending more time indoors. The winter season makes it more challenging for our active seniors to go out. We have been finding more ways to stay active inside our retirement home in Oakville.
Many of the residents in our senior home in Oakville are already looking forward to warmer weather. We are counting the days until we can go for a walk and explore the neighborhood. This is especially true since the city has a lot of parks to be discovered.
