This year, Mother’s Day which fell on May 1 and at Manoir du Lac the day was marked with fitting ceremony.
At 7am, Recreation Therapist/Coordinator Victoria Patrick placed messages on the doorknob of every mother’s door in the Manoir saying, ‘Happy Mother’s Day! You are my only sunshine mom! You are the best.’
“I also decorated the tables with flowers,” says Patrick, “Just to put a smile on their faces.”
The residents and family members who came to celebrate the day with their mothers were served brunch to the accompaniment of ambient background music. The residents and visitors were also served watermelon, ice cream and cake.
