Torchlight Services
Welcome to our new team member Laura Faria."Hey, I’m Laura and I have been with Torchlight since November 2021. After graduating with 2 diplomas in Recreation and Leisure Services and Recreation Therapy, I fell in love with adult day programs and the rest is history! I am extremely passionate about recreation, working within the community, and connecting with others. I am a self described social butterfly and can be found usually dancing my way through the day! Outside of Torchlight you will catch me spending copious amounts of time with friends and family, and fantasizing about the next adventure I’d like to plan! I’m very grateful to be a part of the Torchlight family!" ... See MoreSee Less

Hey there We are back again with another week full of online fun with Torchlight Services’ Connect Program! All of these activities will run on Zoom and (if you are registered with the Torchlight Connect Program) you will be sent an email with all of the Zoom meeting details at least 30 minutes prior to each activity beginning so you can join in on the fun on time.Here is a breakdown of all of the activities that will be run this week:🔥Monday, November 294:00pm - 5:00pm: Just Dance PartyGrab some water and join us for our Just Dance Party! Come and bust a move as we listen to some of our favourite dance songs! There is a "Just Dance Now" app that you can download onto your phone that after completing the tutorial, will allow you to join our game room during the Zoom meeting to connect to our game. Once in the game room, you will be awarded points for how closely you follow the dancers on the screen when the song starts. This is a fun addition to the game, but not needed in order to have fun (freestyle moves are encouraged)!7:00pm - 8:00pm: One Cool ThingEveryone is invited to bring one cool thing along with them to the Zoom call to show your friends at Torchlight! You will also be invited to share a story of the one cool thing, maybe the history of the item or why you think the item is cool! This item that you bring can be anything! Even if you don't bring anything and just want to check out what your friends brought and join in on some conversation, that's cool too! Some examples of items people have brought in the past include trophies, pictures, sports jerseys or even favourite toys or puzzles**🔥Tuesday, November 303:00pm - 4:00pm: Learn To DrawBe sure to bring paper and pencil along with you to this activity as we watch step by step video tutorials to learn how to draw together!6:30pm - 7:30pm: Holiday Virtual ToursJoin us as we virtually explore far away places from the comfort of our own homes!**🔥Wednesday, December 11:00pm - 2:00pm: Almost PictionaryParticipants will be put on teams paired with a staff and in each 2 minute round, staff will be given a list of words and will use the Zoom whiteboard to draw out the items on the list.
