Bridge to Dreams helps resident with Huntington’s have moment on the beach

Family is important. Just ask The Palace Long-Term Care resident Catherine Milgate.

Thanks to Bridge to Dreams, a resident-centred program implemented at Southbridge Care Homes’ The Palace in Alexandria, Catherine lived her dream of reconnecting with family.

The Palace resident, along with her children, grandchildren and great grandchild, attended the Lasalle family reunion in Dalkeith/Laggan. There were more than 100 family members in attendance.

Catherine was part of a family of 17 children, so you imagine what a wonderful reunion it was for her. Catherine had a chance to mingle with her five remaining siblings and thoroughly enjoyed the music, food, laughter and love.

Catherine and her family thanked the Palace LTC for helping to make this special day happen.

Bridge to Dreams is a resident-centered initiative developed by Southbridge Care Homes in partnership with the homes it operates. The program encourages seniors to rekindle their passions and encourages them to celebrate life to the fullest.

“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 Southbridge Chief Executive Officer Ryan Bell.

The Palace Long-Term Care Home, situated in the town of Alexandria on beautifully landscaped grounds that breathe an environment of peace and tranquility, is a 70-bedlong term care home.
