Approach to Our Activity Program

At Bilyara we take a holistic approach to the planning and implementing of our activities program. Activities are created to aid the needs of resident’s social, physical, spiritual, cultural and creative needs.

Activities are an essential part of aiding our residents to maintain good physical and mental health. Our ongoing evolving activities program is wonderful way to aid our residents to enjoy change in environment and a fun and positive lifestyle.

The Leisure and Lifestyle Coordinator at Bilyara is always looking for new and creative ways to engage our residents in meaningful activities and enjoys aiding our residents to live the best possible life they can.
