When Country Village Homes – Woodslee staff noticed that resident Margaret always gave a big smile when she was told she ‘looked pretty,’ they arranged for Margaret to take in a day spa as part of the Bridge to Dreams program.
Staff member Lisa took Margaret to Talbot Day Spa downtown Essex, where Margaret was treated to a manicure and haircut. The girls at the salon took great care of Margaret knowing this was her special day and even donated a paraffin hand treatment.
After the spa, Margaret and Lisa enjoyed a trip to the local Red Apple, where Margaret was treated to a new shirt. The two had worked up an appetite, so they visited The Little House of Cupcakes where Margaret enjoyed two homemade cupcakes.
Margaret looked beautiful after her day out.
Bridge to Dreams is a resident-centered initiative developed by Southbridge Care Homes in partnership with the homes it operates. The program encourages seniors to rekindle their passions and encourages them to celebrate life to the fullest.
“The Bridge to Dreams program is a purposeful way for us to honour our residents in meaningful ways, and together with the direct support of staff, we were able to do just that,” remarked Southbridge Chief Executive Officer Ryan Bell.
Country Village Homes – Woodslee is a 104-bed home located in the Village of Woodslee just a short drive from the larger city centres of Windsor and Kingsville. This fully accredited, newly renovated home is in a charming country setting and has a friendly atmosphere.
