May 9 – 13th was Nurses Week. At Manotick Place, we decided to have a high tea for all of our past and present nurses.
The table was filled with scones, cucumber sandwiches, brownies, jams, and many other goodies. We started the tea by reciting the Florence Nightingale Pledge; most women made this pledge when they first became nurses. People brought their graduation photos, pins, caps and capes. It was great to sit around and reminisce on the good old days.
Terri Ann, our Director of Care, joined us and got to catch up with everyone. While chatting, some people even realized that they used to work together and had no idea that they were living in the same community.
We want to say an extra special thank you to all of our nurses and PSWs. We have an incredible team at Manotick Place. Our team is always ready to help with anything and everything and does it with a positive attitude. Thank you for all you do; we couldn’t do it without you!
