We are working diligently with both our community partners as well as the Museum to discuss ways to streamline the Volunteer program in order to provide effective service to our current and prospect volunteers. Further to this, new Volunteer referral cards are being added to the program.  Any new volunteer referred to by a current volunteer includes them into monthly giveaways.

Mind & Melody

mind & nelodyAs you know we have been implementing a program called Music & Memory on all home areas, where residents are set up with personalized playlists that are loaded on to an iPod for them to enjoy. We have seen great success in this program and appreciate how well the multidisciplinary team works together to allow residents to enjoy their favourite music. We are excited to announce the rebranding of the program to “Mind & Melody" as we are no longer using the Music and Memory brand.  Please note that the goals of the program remain the same.
