We are so fortunate with the location of The Hamlets in the sunny Okanagan, not only because we enjoy the beautiful nature and scenery but also because we are able to take the residents out on summer boat trips on Okanagan lake.
Since 1993, the Okanagan Quality Life Society (OQLS) have been running this boating program for seniors with limited ability and/or those who live in care facilities. It is a non-profit organization and it is run 100% by volunteers, all of them great people with big hearts, wanting to offer seniors in the Okanagan an opportunity to continue their connection with the lake, since many of them were boat owners or loved to be on/by the lake when they were independent.
We have enjoyed weekly outings on this boat and all the residents have thoroughly enjoyed their trips. It is wonderful to see the enjoyment in the expression on their faces.
