Congratulations to staff at Donald Berman Maimonides Geriatric Centre for organizing a Valentine’s Day event known as “To Spa with Love,” in which the fifth-floor activity room was transformed into a spa. It was a way for staff to bring the spa experience to residents in the form of self-care and nurturing. Residents enjoyed such services as manicures, massage, makeup and hair styling. According to Lucy Bridgeman, Therapeutic Recreation Specialist, “My goal for this program was to offer the residents on thefifth floor some of the perks and benefits of going to a spa. A spa day can be a positive contributing factor for our residents’ emotional health and quality of life.”
