Staying Social and Keeping Cool!
September 28th, 2022

We’ve been enjoying the end of our summer here at Wild Rose, hosting patio gatherings to enjoy the nice weather. Lately, many of our residents have been enjoying gathering at the front of the building to enjoy social time and watch the community happenings. We do ask that you take extra caution when driving up to the entrance at Wild Rose and watch for our seniors.

Residents have been enjoying some live music with performances from Larry Renn and Richard Jollymore, a resident's friend, who traveled from Calgary to entertain us for a couple of days.

From all of the staff and residents here at Wild Rose, we wish you a great rest of the summer! Here’s to warm days, cool evenings and great times with family and friends.

Stuff the Bus!

On September 2nd for National Food Bank Day, we had an incredible time with our local community as we collected 748 lbs of food for the Strathcona Food Bank. We celebrated with live music, face painting, and games, as this day reminded us of all we have to be grateful for. Our staff and residents were proud to be giving back to the community that we so proudly call home. Thank you to everyone who came and brought donations!

Safety Week

During the second week of August, residents and staff did some Emergency Preparedness training that included water fights and a fun day of Wizard of Oz themed activities. Residents were whisked away to the Land of Oz, but in the end, we all discovered that there’s no place like home at Wild Rose. Wild Rose went all out and had a tornado of a time with our Wizard of Oz characters working the way down the yellow brick road to safety!
