Supporting Active Residents with “To Go” Lunches


There are plenty of reasons why choosing a retirement residence in Oakville with assisted living services is one of the best decisions you and your loved one can make. Retirement living communities offer a fun yet worry-free environment for your loved ones. More than that, the various leisure and recreation activities are geared towards enriching residents’ lives in Oakville, ON.

Active Senior Living in Oakville Retirement Residences

Active senior living is a holistic approach to retirement living communities. Residents are provided with their practical needs, along with meaningful activities that help them continue to nurture their passions and live life to the fullest.

At Oakville Retirement Home, we ensure that our residents get to enjoy events that keep them healthy and happy. While there may be limitations to the activities we can provide while being socially distanced, there are still plenty of ways to keep our residents moving.

Some of the many events we have that support a social and active lifestyle for our residents include:

  • Gardening
  • Fitness Classes
  • Theme Nights
  • Day Trips
  • Community Dining
  • Interactive Games

Through these various activities, we continue to create a community that feels like family. We know how important it is for everyone to remain engaged while still enjoying their life to the fullest.

“Grab and Go Lunch”

The winter months have kept us mostly cooped up indoors and looking forward to sunnier days. One highlight of our summer days is doing “To Go” lunches. Come summertime; we do BBQ, picnics, and “grab and go” lunches. These are all held at our wrap-around deck or bistro patio. Residents can enjoy a container lunch that they can take anywhere. They can have a hearty meal at any of their favourite outdoor spots, take it to the dining room, or even their suite.

Best of all, our staff will often join our residents during these lunches. We value person-centered care in our Oakville retirement residence, and our team members love to connect with our residents to help build that sense of community that is so important to this approach. Enjoying a meal together is an excellent way for everyone to interact and engage with each other.

Our BBQs and “take where you want it” lunches are a hit among our residents! It is a great way for them to maintain being social and active while staying safe.
