Seats are limited for our September start up. register now to secure your seat:

My name is Shanny. I have taught ASL for 30 year now. Deaf since birth. I'm a mom of 5 hearing children and have a husband who became deaf at one year old. Teaching ASL has been my passion for many years now. I have received my ASL teaching Certification back in 1999. My experience teaching is mainly all people in various jobs, walks of lives, etc. I've taught people who were losing their hearing, people who have deaf relatives or children, people who wanted to learn for fun, people who worked with deaf children, teens in high school, baby signing, and many more. I have a great sense of humour and compassion and love for people in general. My hobby is camping. This is my only hobby. Camping is a big thing for me; when my husband is working. It does not stop me from going camping alone or with my children. Camping is my passion.

Fitness Fun
10:00 – 11:00
September 14th – Nov 30th
$100.00 (For term)
Exercise is beneficial in many different ways, both mentally and physically. It strengthens the mind and body and provides us with more energy so we can actively participate in life. Exercise can help us feel happier by releasing the “feel good” chemicals in our bodies known as endorphins. When endorphins are released, people feel less pain, stress, and frustration. Other contributions to good health that exercise can provide include reducing fat, increasing self-esteem, and building physical endurance. The stronger and healthier we are both mentally and physically, the better we will be able to deal with everyday life and the better our odds will be of living a long, happy, and healthy life.

Sing Along with Ron
September 14th – Nov 30th
11:00 - 12:00
$120.00 (For term)
Music is often linked to mood. A certain song can make us feel happy, sad, energetic, or relaxed. Music is a great way to address the physical, emotional, cognitive, and social needs of a group!

We will cover:
• Looking at how you spend your money now,
• Developing a livable budget that includes a plan for spending and saving,

Bingo
September 1st – Nov 24th
10:00 – 11:00
$100.00 (For term)
An action-packed hour playing a game of chance in which each player matches numbers printed in different arrangements on cards, winning prizes and having fun!
Bingo is most certainly largely a game of luck, but that doesn't stop a feeling of competitiveness during the game and a sense of pride after a win. It's an engaging and fun game that can be competitive in a fun way, knowing skill has very little to do with the outcome.
Let’s get one thing straight – bingo is not a boring game. It’s an exciting and unpredictable game that will get your heart racing every time a new ball is about to be drawn.
Since bingo is purely a game of luck, you cannot know what will happen next and you cannot influence the outcome of the game. All you can do is sit, mark the numbers, and hope for the best.
The competitiveness involved will make this game even more thrilling!

Each participant works on a small piece of the larger picture on their own small canvas. Everyone adds a special twist to each picture.

Our Story

How, and Why, we got started: Written by owner Heather Doyle:

Loving Hands, Partners in Care, is a planned program of activities designed to promote well-being though social and health-related services. Our Adult Day Care Program will enable seniors and persons with disabilities in our community to participate in a social setting that encompasses intellectual and physical well-being in a safe, structured, and supportive environment. Our program will allow our participants the opportunity to increase their quality of life and remain in their homes and community longer. This additionally promotes greater social and physical health, reducing the stressors of isolation.
