Recreation Therapy Centre and Services
Recreation and Therapy Centre
Our goal at the Recreation and Therapy Centre is:
- To provide opportunities for individuals in the community to improve or maintain their physical wellness in a well equipped and fully accessible environment.
- To have opportunities to socialize with others during recreational and educational activities.
The Recreation and Therapy Centre is open to the public as well as the people Brantwood supports. Room rentals, activity programs, and use of equipment are all available for purchase.
Brantwood Community Services provides a fully accessible hydrotherapy pool that offers significant therapeutic benefits to those with joint pain or stiffness as well as providing a soothing medium for an afternoon swim. Therapeutic rehabilitative programs for weight bearing, supported standing, range of motion and resistance exercises are just a few of the valuable uses of this resource. The hydrotherapy pool also houses a sensory waterfall and sprinkler feature that can be controlled by the occupants of the pool. The pool is open to the public as well as the people Brantwood supports.
Entrance to the pool is barrier free, as there is both a ramp for a gradual entrance and a ceiling track lift for those with limited mobility. Our change rooms also house a ceiling lift, water chairs, lifejackets and other equipment for your convenience.

Snoezelen Multi Sensory Room
The generosity of a Trillium Foundation grant allowed Brantwood to provide a fully equipped Snoezelen Multi Sensory Room.
What is a Snoezelen Multi Sensory Room?
A Snoezelen Multi Sensory Room incorporates a selection of specialized sensory equipment and materials that help people with special needs progress in their education and therapy goals. A Snoezelen room incorporates a blend of sights, sounds, textures and motion to provide stimulation and promote relaxation.
Individuals using the Snoezelen Room can enjoy the environment by either controlling the equipment used or reflectively enjoying the experience.
The Snoezelen room is available for use by appointment. People supporting individuals using the room are trained on the operation and care of equipment prior to use.
