About Us

At the Perley and Rideau Veterans’ Health Centre in Ottawa, Ontario, we strive to improve the well-being of the people we serve. We also want to help seniors in our community. We believe that aging well is rooted in living well – and that there is joy in living every day.

Learning has no age limit. The Perley Rideau’s Therapeutic Recreation and Creative Arts Program features a remarkable range of activities—from pottery, painting and woodworking to gardening and group outings. Program activities are delivered by a mix of certified therapists and professional artists with support from volunteers. Now we are sharing some of those activities with seniors in the community.

The benefits of recreational therapy are widely recognized. Seniors who participate tend to feel better and do better. This website provides multiple options for seniors looking to think, move and learn! Enjoy!
