What is Perley Rideau Lifelong Learning?
Built on the philosophy that learning has no age limit, the Perley Rideau Lifelong Learning Program offers in-person classes and studio sessions in a welcoming, collaborative learning environment. Participants have the opportunity to stay active, to learn from expert instructors, and to connect with others who share common interests. Courses are open to anyone with a passion for learning, including volunteers, residents of the Perley Rideau, tenants, family and all members of the Ottawa community.
Courses are held in existing facilities at the Perley and Rideau Veterans’ Health Centre. Located in the Alta Vista community, the Perley Rideau is the ideal location to build an active and supportive learning environment. The centre is in many ways a village, offering apartments for independent seniors, long-term resident care, fully-equipped ceramic art and painting studios, spacious meeting rooms, a cafeteria, a pharmacy, an art gallery and more. Parking will be validated for registered participants. Caregivers who accompany participants will be admitted for free.
