Bringing fun to the residents

Popcorn, ring toss, squirt guns and clowns – all that was missing was bumper cars and tilt-a-whirl – maybe next year!

On Thursday, August 22, Mountainview Lodge hosted its second Annual In-house Carnival for about 20 residents.

Northern Health organizers long-term care aide Jane McIlwrath and activity worker Martha Flores are already looking forward to next year.

“The residents really believe they’re at a carnival,” said McIlwrath. “It’s a lot of fun for them.”

“We put this on because it’s exciting. The first one was little smaller, so we added more for this year. Next year, the grandkids are invited,” said McIlwrath.

Thank you to Jane and Martha for your creativity, and for bringing fun to and creating connections for the residents you work with. We’re looking forward to seeing the third carnival next year.
