Every month we try to celebrate a special day as an excuse to have a party and dress up. In August it was Indian Independence day. On the 4th July we celebrated American Independence Day. Did you know that in Japan they have a special day for "Respect of the Elderly" on 15 September. We will be having a special day for this as well. Our residents love to get dressed up for the party and we have singers come in and overall there is plenty of laughter and smiling. Does the heart good to know we can bring happiness into people's lives.

We have an added bonus that our regular Singer and we have a little dog. There is nothing like puppy cuddles for having a tender moment.

We enjoy going to the Jazz and Blues club at times at the Pt Chev RSA and doing any other things that we can come up with that relate to our residences interests.
