Bringing Nova Scotia To Temiskaming Lodge

Staff Make Resident Dream Come True Through Better Late Than Never Program.

Temiskaming Lodge Long Term Care Home - Haileybury, ON.

On Thursday, April 25th, Temiskaming Lodge made a Resident's wish come true with the "Better Late Than Never" Program. Bill Murray has long wished for a seafood feast and a Nova Scotian-themed day to remind him of his homeland. Bill is from New Waterford on Cape Breton Island and wanted to feel like he was back on native soil. Our Social Service Worker Student, Alicia Fader, along with the Life Enrichment Department, worked hard to help make Bill's wish come true. To bring the experience to life, the team transformed the Dining Room into the Atlantic Ocean, played traditional East Coast music, hosted a fishing game and provided a host of delicious refreshments and cake. But the best was yet to come, as the staff prepared the ultimate seafood feast, including lobster and scallops, which were donated by the local grocery store, Chartland's, for Bill and 3 guests. Bill had a truly spectacular day, and it was a privilege to create this meaningful experience for such a wonderful person.
