Supporting Meaningful Activity: Life at Renaissance


Continue The Life You Enjoy: Fulfilling Lifestyles Through Meaningful Activity


At Renaissance, we believe that every resident deserves a life filled with purpose and joy. That's why we're dedicated to creating a meaningful lifestyle for each and every person within our care. We take the time to learn about each individual's interests, life enjoyments, and personal connections so that we can work together to make their time with us meaningful and enjoyable.

Our role is to support residents to continue with the hobbies and interests that matter most to them. Whether you enjoy daily activities such as reading, gardening, or spending time with loved ones, or you're looking for adventure with day excursions, we will support you to live as happily and as independently as possible, with choice and opportunity in abundance.

It's up to you whether you want to sit back and relax throughout the day or get involved in tasks around the home, such as DIY with our maintenance team, laundry with our housekeepers, or food prep with our chefs. Anything is possible, and we actively encourage participation so that everyone feels valued and included during their stay.
