April 2015 Activity Calendar and News – Walden Heights

Message from the General Manager

The Estates are now open and we are welcoming new independent seniors into the Walden Heights community. We are also nearing the completion of the commissioning phase of Walden Heights Long Term Care and Long Term Care Secured neighbourhoods. As we go forward we will be continuing to work with our team, our families and Residents towards the goals we have set for ourselves regarding both our Residents and our staff. This upcoming year will prove to be exciting as we settle into our new building and with our new Residents and families.

Spring is coming and as we go forward with good weather we will start to open the courtyards for our Residents and their families to enjoy. We will place a notice on the doors when the courtyards are open.

Yours,

Carol Law
General Manager
