Our Defining Moments
A poem about "Extendicare"Mrs. V wanted to share her heartfelt sentiment on how Extendicare Kapuskasing made her and husband feel welcome. For her, the best way to express herself was through a poem.
In here, I see, happy fa-mi-ly
Faces with eyes of peace and serenity
Smiles express, warmth they feel
Hearts together make it better
Hands and minds keep busy
Games, puzzles, movies, baking
good meals, best caregivers and nurses
We don't need purses
Love is what you hear
Songs and music brighten life so dear
Past memories, the present and the future
The moment lived holds on splender
Seniors and all ages bond merrily
And form a happy extended fa-mi-lyMrs. V

Mrs. J. was 74 when she first arrived from the hospital in a wheelchair. She was unable to walk, had severe diabetes, could barely talk and was totally dependent.
Within one year she was walking on her own and talking with other residents. Her diabetes was under control and she was able to feed herself. She had regained her independence to the point where she was able to leave the home for visits with her family. Her family was completely amazed at the transformation and grateful to have their mother back.
Comforting CareMr. E. was 76 when he came to live with us in 2011. He was suffering badly from dementia and poor health in general.
Mr. E. was 76 when he came to live with us in 2011. He was suffering badly from dementia and poor health in general. He was very fearful and defensive, he wanted to run constantly and no one could touch him. Since then, thanks to the tireless efforts of his care team, he has improved dramatically. The fear is gone. He laughs, jokes and talks with people. He exhibits no desire to run anymore and he is always out with other residents enjoying all the activities he can.
