Whenever a resident has become in need of a vigil then care-aid is needed for the visitors, family members & close friends who come to Crescent Park Lodge. Recreation is in process of creating a self supporting fund to defray the added costs of this “We Care” item. This fund to be the beneficiary of voluntary donations that it is hoped will suffice.
During a vigil those participating will need refreshments, comfortable chairs, blankets and kits containing those everyday things that a person will need but is not likely to have with them The fund will be made available to pay the associated cost.
Another example of the “We Care” attitude
Just a thought. Families are Objective and you are either a member of a particular family or not. Friends, Enemies and all similar things between are Subjective. One can be a friend and an enemy tomorrow. It is a subjective position.
Why the thought? Well recreation departments appear to struggle mentally between these things when considering family members attending Family Councils which are reportedly under represented.
Do I have a solution? Sorry just a thought.
A simple word “creation”. Adding “re” to the front and there it is “recreation”.
Recreation whenever I think of it is the many uses of leisure time but when applied to a long term care nursing home department means much more. In these cases Recreation means re-creation of which recreation is the part, as many people & myself have come to understand it is “games played in leisure time”.
