MItch and the Sudbury WolvesSt. Joseph’s Villa, Villa St. Gabriel Villa and St. Joseph’s Continuing Care Centre continually strive to create opportunities for residents and patients to enrich their experience during their time at each of our facilities.  In anticipation of unveiling the winners in June during Seniors Month, all three facilities launched a new program entitled “Make a Wish”.

In seeking to enhance the lives of our residents and patients, St. Joseph’s Villa, Villa St. Gabriel Villa, and St. Joseph’s Continuing Care Centre, granted one resident’s wish at each of the Villas and one patient’s wish at St. Joseph’s Continuing Care Centre.

On September 11, 2015, one such wish was granted at Villa St. Gabriel Villa for Mitch Morais.  Mitch’s wish was to meet a Sudbury Wolves player.  The facility received an overwhelming response from the Sudbury Wolves team.  Five players attended Villa St. Gabriel Villa to meet Mitch, present him with a signed jersey, hockey stick and tickets to their September 27th game when the Wolves will host the Mississauga Steelheads. This was followed by a one-on-one shoot out with the players and a howling moment with their mascot Howler.

We wish to thank all families, volunteers, and staff who took the time to provide submissions for this program and continuing to work toward putting our residents and patients at the centre of all we do…Caring Beyond the Moment!
