Our Remarkable Moments

Mrs. T's Right at Home

Mrs. T. was in her mid 80’s when she moved into our home and her daughter was worried that she wouldn’t adjust well to life here.

Mrs. T. was in her mid 80’s when she moved into our home and her daughter was worried that she wouldn’t adjust well to life here. After a few weeks, Mrs. T. went to her daughter’s home for dinner and when the meal was over, she asked her daughter when she was going to take her back home…and by home she meant Vista Park Lodge. She had adjusted to living with us and was very happy here. Her daughter was delighted and relieved that she had been able to make the transition so well.

Mr. S's Gardening Therapy

Mr. S. was in his early 90’s when he came to live with us. He was very withdrawn when he got here but that all changed when he discovered we had a garden. Mr. S. had been a farmer all his life so farming was in his blood. He loved the garden and immediately took charge and could be found out working in it every day. He kept it in tip-top shape and there was always an abundance of carrots, tomatoes, beans and other vegetables for soups and salads. When he passed away, we erected a plaque in the garden in his name as a way to honour and remember him.
