Remarkable Moments at Extendicare Tri-Town

Extendicare Tri-Town celebrated St. Patrick’s Day with two weeks of fun!

Extendicare Tri-Town celebrated St. Patrick’s Day with two weeks of fun! Every resident was assigned to an Irish Clan and each Clan would get points when they participated in an activity (more points with the potatoes toss and pot of gold toss).

At the end of the two weeks competition of games, we celebrated with residents dressing in green, Irish karaoke, green drinks and a visit from a leprechaun! The winner of this “Friendly Competition” was the Murphy Clan!

Music and Memory Therapy

An elderly gentleman in his early 80’s came to our home suffering from dementia. He was very docile and despite the efforts of our program and recreational staff, he didn’t speak and was completely disengaged.

An elderly gentleman in his early 80’s came to our home suffering from dementia. He was very docile and despite the efforts of our program and recreational staff, he didn’t speak and was completely disengaged. As part of our Music and Memory Program, we learned about his past history from his family and put together a playlist of his favourite music with their help. From the moment we put the earphones on him, his demeanor changed completely. He brightened up and started to sing along. Now, through the power of music he smiles, is engaged and enjoys a much-improved quality of life.
