Since confinement, many residences for seniors have set up special remote activities, to reduce feelings of loneliness during this period. Here are some original activities:
1- Solidarity show - Château Bellevue de Valleyfield
From the top of their balconies, residents were able to attend a magnificent song and dance performance by the recreation committee.
