Coffee Social

Tuesdays, 10:15-11:15 am
Each week, seniors are welcome to meet their neighbours in a relaxed social setting at the CNH main house. Seniors form close ties with each other and develop a sense of belonging. Some refreshments are provided.

English as an Additional Language (EAL) Conversation Group

Guided by volunteers, this program provides a place and time for older adults/seniors to work on basic reading skills, learn everyday conversation skills and have fun grasping the English language in an enjoyable setting. Participants learn the alphabet, pronunciation, and how to read short passages.

Karaoke

Second Monday of the month, 1:15-3:30 pm
Older adults build connections through music. They gather to sing karaoke songs in any language. Participants may bring their own music or a volunteer host can help them to find music online.

Recreation

CNH offers recreation and leisure programs for people of all ages and ability levels. We aim to provide a balance of activities that are inclusive and promote health and quality of life for local residents.

All programs are offered as drop-ins unless noted otherwise. For additional savings, program passes are available for adult and senior recreation programs.

The CNH 55+ Social Club offers older adults a place to play and to connect on the last Monday of each month. Games and puzzles keep minds sharp.

With a little music and some refreshments, seniors can find a warm, welcoming place to forge a solid social network.
