Therapeutic Recreation

Deer Lodge Centre offers a variety of therapeutic recreation programs developed by our team of amazing Recreation Facilitators and delivered by both staff and volunteers.

In 2023, Hon. Audrey Gordon, Minister of Health, officially proclaimed February as Therapeutic Recreation Month in Manitoba. Participating in leisure activities offers many health benefits. Deer Lodge Centre’s Therapeutic Recreation Facilitators provide meaningful activities that help meet the social, emotional, physical and cognitive needs of patients and residents. This is done through large-group programming and one to one connection.
