Residents’ Council Week was acknowledged at Twin Lakes Terrace with the launch of the Never Stop Making Wishes campaign and a visit from the Sarnia long-term care community’s very own mobile Tim Hortons cart.

The Never Stop Making Wishes campaign is aimed at giving residents the opportunity to make a wish and share what is meaningful to them, explains life enrichment manager Kendra Donkers.

The residents made a wide range of wishes, Kendra says. Some of the things residents wished for included wishing for greater mobility, wishing for in-home visits with children and wishing for a lobster dinner.

“This initiative will help give our residents a sparkle of hope in what has been some challenging changes during the pandemic,” Kendra says. “Never stop wishing.”

Residents also requested a visit from the home’s Tim Hortons cart during Residents’ Council Week, which was Sept. 13-19.

The cart is fashioned to look like a Tim Hortons drive-thru window, and residents can order hot beverages and doughnuts from team members when the cart passes by. Tim Hortons Smile Cookies were available as well during Residents’ Council Week.

“We shared coffee, tea, doughnuts, Smile Cookies and many laughs,” Kendra says. “The Smile Cookies were a big hit, bringing big smiles to many faces throughout the day.”

Residents’ Council Week was celebrated with residents, their families and team members at Twin Lakes Terrace. The week is dedicated to celebrating residents’ councils across Ontario for the work they do.
