We were pleased to host a Dementia Information Session on November 3rd with a local interdisciplinary healthcare team experienced in dementia care. Guest speakers included Dr. Linda Lee, a pioneer of the MINT memory clinics, a Registered Practical Nurse, Occupational Therapist, and a Clinical Pharmacist. Plum Tree Memory Care is a new resource in the region offered to those looking for support and education in dementia care.
Our Fitness for Your Aging Brain classes continued into November with many residents joining each session. We are happy to continue this class in the new year.
This month we wrapped up our four-week workshop series on Transitions: A Journey of Transformation through Loss, Grief and Mourning presented by the Laurier Association for Lifelong Learning (Wilfrid Laurier University). We are continuing to work with the Instructor, Martina Steiger, in developing programming at the Village to support residents on their journey through grief. Please contact our Wellness Coordinator, Joy Hancock, for additional information. 


Our community came together on Remembrance Day to honour those who sacrificed their health and lives to ensure our freedom. Thank you to our veterans for their dedicated service to our country.
It was a festive atmosphere at our Winter Vendor Market on Friday November 18th with over 20 vendors offering their unique goods and products for purchase including baking, clothing, footwear, jewelry, crafts and more!
New residents who moved to the Village in 2022 were welcomed to our Community at a Community Meet n’ Greet event held in Martin’s on November 23rd. This event will be held every four months, and all residents are welcome to join in good conversations, laughs and refreshments.
On November 25th we were fortunate to hear our own Ella, Food Service Worker in the Sunshine Centre, as she delighted us with beautiful renditions of timeless music on the piano. Ella will be invited back in the new year to share her talent with residents.
We thank our staff, residents and partners for making this such a meaningful month.
