“When April steps aside for May, Like diamonds all the rain-drops glisten; Fresh violets open every day: To some new bird each hour we listen.” ~ Lucy Larcom (American Poet, 1824-1893)
Mother’s Day High Tea
Moms, Step-Moms, Grandmoms, and all others kinds of moms are welcome to enjoy an afternoon High Tea with on Friday May 6th at 2:00pm in the Atrium.
There will be delicate flower tea choices, and of course some lovely fresh snacks to go along with it! We will be graced by poetry reading and of course music to delight all the senses. Seating is limited, so make sure to attend earlier than later!
A reminder that the weather is changing! With spring here, Recreation will host more programs outdoors with weather permitting. Please be sure to provide your loved ones with sunscreen, hats, sunglasses, coats, etc. as we do not provide any ourselves. We want everyone to be able to get out and enjoy the courtyard and wonderful outdoors!
The main Courtyard is open 8:00am—9:00pm daily
A Volunteer Courtyard Guide will be available to residents Tuesdays & Thursday Morning.
The effects of sunlight and fresh air has a positive effect on the body! This includes greater energy, improved overall health, reduced stressed and depression, and improved sleep.

Congratulations to the Sleep & Comfort Committee who was featured in the AHS Project Bulletin for Spring 2016`s “Appropriate Use of Antipsychotics Project”. Agecare Midnapore identified 20 people who were up at night in Somerset. Reviewed their medications and diagnoses, adjusted incontinence products, provided afternoon quiet time and quiet evening activities. They opened the dining room for those who don’t like to rest in the afternoon. Additionally, Aromatherapy was used in the neighbourhood… Stay tuned with more to come!
