Most recently, Kim Williams played a large role in helping organize Halloween party

Frost Manor life enrichment co-ordinator (LEC) Lyndsay Burton says Kim Williams, a new member of the life enrichment team, has already come up “with plenty of fun and exciting programs” for residents to enjoy in her short time at the home.

Kim’s latest craft idea was to create pieces of art with masks for Halloween. She got 15 residents in on the fun creating these unique masks that reflect each resident’s personal taste. The masks were assembled using glitter, paint, foam shapes and paper cutouts.

The new life enrichment aide (LEA) says the experience has also been rewarding for her, noting she has had a lot of fun working with the Lindsay long-term care home’s residents, Lyndsay says.

“She was so excited to show the finished masterpieces to the residents, once all the glue was set,” Lyndsay tells The OMNIway.

The masks were worn on Halloween evening for the Halloween party where the residents got to dress up and compete for the best-dressed.

Kim also came up with “spooky and ghoulish ideas” for refreshments to serve residents on Halloween, including “eye of newt punch”, devilled eyeballs and pumpkin dippers

“Kim’s energy and enthusiasm for this event has been spreading throughout the home and residents are getting very excited for the Halloween Party,” Lyndsay says.
