Bridge to Dreams reconnects resident to his passion – Blue Jays baseball

Wayne says he has been a Jays fan, “since the beginning of time.”

He used to attend games with his wife, but after he began to have mobility issues, it became difficult to attend games.

Now thanks to a resident-centred program implemented at Southbridge Seaforth, Wayne was able to once again experience the crack of the bat, the sound of baseballs thumping into gloves and the music of infield chatter.

The Bridge to Dreams program supported Wayne to once again attend a game. Tickets in hand and spending money in his pocket, Wayne was lucky enough to attend the Celebration of the 91-92 World Series Champs game.

With family in tow, Wayne enjoyed an exciting day of baseball and family.

Operated by Southbridge Care Homes, Southbridge Seaforth implemented Bridge to Dreams, a resident-centered initiative developed by Southbridge Care Homes in partnership with the home.

“The Bridge to Dreams program is a purposeful way for us to honour our residents in meaningful ways, and together with the direct support of staff, we were able to do just that,” remarked Keith McIntosh, Chief Executive Officer of Southbridge Care Homes.

Southbridge Seaforth is a home to 64 residents in Seaforth, Ontario.
