Mother’s Day is this Sunday. Let’s make it special even if visitation restrictions continue to prevent from wishing our mothers a special day in person! We welcome families to consider the following:

  • Send a photo of yourself, or your family holding a poster format mother’s day message and a special wish on this special day. We welcome a .jpg photo via the address and we will ensure to print it, share it with the resident and post it in their rooms. Please indicate “A Mother’s Day Wish” in the subject line of the email and indicate your mother’s (or grandmother’s) name, unit and room number in the body of the email.
  • Write an email with a very special message. Be assured that either our social worker, our recreation or spiritual care staff will be honoured to read to the resident.
  • Instead of flowers, consider giving a plant that can be transplanted in one of our planters in recognition of all the mothers living among us.

Our recreation team have a number of Mother’s Day events during the week to make our Mothers feel special. This will include spa days, nail painting, aroma therapy and afternoon tea. These will occur at the unit level and respect all infection control practices and social distancing protocols.
