June 2018 – Senior’s Month at St. Joseph’s Villa has concluded and it was another successful month that including a number of special events facilitated by the Life Enrichment Department. The residents of St. Joseph’s Villa attended a 50’s and 60’s sock hop, a summer carnival and were treated to a barbeque lunch. The Make a Wish (MAW) announcement was also made on the day of the barbeque.
The Make a Wish Program is held each May where residents, families, staff and volunteers can nominate a resident to receive a special wish each senior’s month. It was an emotional and joyous afternoon for Mr. Bob McGown who was named the 2018 Make a Wish recipient! Bob was nominated by Jennifer Gosselin, the Registered Social Worker at St. Joseph’s Villa. Bob’s wish was to receive a bird-themed room make-over. The Make a Wish committee is currently in the midst of planning a shopping outing with Bob to pick up all the items the MAW design team will need to turn his room into a cozy sanctuary! Congratulations Bob!
