The importance of ice cream

We just completed our bi-annual Resident Satisfaction Food Survey. It is an important nutritional tool that teaches us a great deal about our residents likes and dislikes and what is working on our menu and what is not.

It was brought to our attention that ice-cream really works very well for our residents. Any flavour, any style. But that given the choice, the best way to enjoy ice cream according to the Resident Satisfaction Survey is on a warm, sunny day at Summerland Sweets.

How we like to party in a senior care home!

Living in a long term care home doesn’t stop the party! At Prairie Valley Lodge we love to throw a party. Birthdays, holidays and special events are always celebrated with style. Despite a senior’s potential limitations, a day can always be made special with their favourite food and drink, as well as with their friends and family around them. Plus- let’s not forget the birthday cake. Living in long term care does not prohibit a senior from enjoying a glass of their favourite wine or beer with their friends.

You can see from Bill’s photos how proud he is to host his own birthday party this week complete with balloons, banners, and birthday boy badges. He tells us the senior years are the best!
