A Touching Tribute

Roberta Place Hosts Tree Dedication To Honour The Lives Of All Past And Present Residents

Roberta Place Long Term Care Home - Barrie, ON.

Last week, the Team at Roberta Place Long Term Care Home held a touching Tree Dedication Ceremony to remember Residents who have since departed the Home. Typically, the Team would hold a Memorial Service in October, inviting Residents and past and present Family Members to join, however, current circumstances led them in another direction. Each day in the month of October, Roberta Place remembered a departed Resident with a sign, candle and memorial poem. Many Family Members and Team Members stopped at this table in the Lobby each day to take a moment to pause and reflect on these cherished lives. During the service, the Team also read a beautiful poem of remembrance: "I give you this one thought to keep. I am with you still. I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow. I am the diamond glints on the snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain. I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning's hush, I am the swift, uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft stars that shine at night. Do not think of me as gone. I am with you still in each new dawn." It truly was a heartfelt event and we are grateful our Team found a meaningful way to continue with this tradition.
