Welcome Home To NewfoundlandSeptember 07, 2017 | The Gardens
One of our wonderful residents, Ms. Kostal, is originally from Wesleyville, Newfoundland. Ms. Kostal always shares stories of Newfoundland with The Gardens staff and fellow residents. She even asks if there's any way she can live there.
Unfortunately, we weren't able to send her all the way to Newfoundland, but we were able to bring Newfoundland to HER! The staff here at The Gardens decided to organize a very sweet and special WOW! Moment for our beloved Ms. Kostal. We invited her family over to the community for a private evening and prepared a popular "Jiggs Dinner" for them, which is a well-known prepared dish from Newfoundland. We also provided "scrunchions," which is a popular snack of Newfoundland!
We decorated with pictures and made a little sign that read "Welcome back to Wesleyville." It was very sentimental for Ms. Kostal, and she and her family enjoyed this special dinner so much. We are so happy that we could bring a taste of home to Ms. Kostal through this WOW! Moment. We can't wait to continue finding ways to bringing joy and happiness to this wonderful resident's life!
