Love was in the air at Rosebridge Manor

Home hosted saxophone player, family members for Valentine’s Day

Rosebridge Manor had a lovin’ feeling in store for Valentine’s Day.

The Jasper, Ont. long-term care home hosted a Valentine’s Day party Feb. 14, inviting family members to join residents for the special occasion. Rosebridge Manor hired a saxophone player to provide the entertainment.

Meanwhile, a talented baker in the home’s dietary department made a cake and Rosebridge provided other treats as well.

For some time leading up to Valentine’s Day, the home had a box in its entranceway, in which visitors and family members could express their feelings by dropping in cards for residents.

“We have tons of cards in there already to distribute at the party,” Kathy Barr, Rosebridge Manor life enrichment co-ordinator, said prior to Valentine’s Day.

“Residents love getting mail, period, so they’re all looking forward to their cards.”

The box held a combination of mini Valentine’s notes and full-sized greeting cards.

Family members were invited to wear red and white while participating in the holiday festivities.

And as Dean Martin crooned, “That’s Amore.”
