Our Remarkable Moments

Mrs. B. is 105 years old and was 101 when she came to live with us. She is still active in programs, very socially engaged and mentally sharp. She is an inspiration to us all.

Rehabilition Success

Mr. B. was in his early 70’s when he came to us from the hospital after a leg amputation.

Mr. B. was in his early 70’s when he came to us from the hospital after a leg amputation. His surgical wounds were infected and not healing and Alberta Health Services asked if we would take him. We didn’t hesitate. It took about 6 months of dedicated effort but we managed to heal his wounds. We then arranged for Mr. B. to go daily to the Glen Rose Rehab Hospital where he received a prosthesis. The Occupational Therapist worked with him and, with Mr. B’s determination and the OT’s dedication, he was able to walk again. Once that happened there was no stopping him. Mr. B. proceeded to get his driver’s license and move back into the community into his own apartment.
