West Lake dining room window decorated with Christmas art, thanks to creative team member

Screener Annette Bourette commended for sharing her artistic talent with residents and staff

If you go past the large dining room window at West Lake Terrace these days you’ll see some detailed Christmas-themed murals painted on the glass.

This creative yuletide art, which includes a decorated Christmas tree, a snowman and candy canes, is the handiwork of Annette Bourette, a screener at the Prince Edward County long-term care home.

Annette took on the entire dining room window as a Christmas decorating project, an initiative that has been fully embraced by West Lake residents and staff members.

“It’s just unbelievable what she has been able to do,” says life enrichment co-ordinator Janie Denard.

“We didn’t know that Annette could paint the way that she does, but I think that a lot of the staff have these huge talents that we don’t see.”

Janie says Annette approached her about painting the window a couple of weeks back, and she was on board with the idea. Annette even bought her own supplies to get the job done.

Residents have been awestruck by Annette’s artistic talents, Janie says, noting they have been by her side watching her carefully paint each mural on the window.

“Residents have been sitting with her and watching and waiting to see what the finished product is going to look like,” Janie says, adding Annette deserves the highest kudos for doing such an “amazing” job.

“She has gone above and beyond; it has been unbelievable.”
