Our 4th annual candlelight evening of memories will take place on Friday, October 9th, 2015 at 7 PM in the main living room of the Wales Home.

Since 2012, the popularity of this event has increased significantly. This year our goal  is to light over 1100 candles!

Each year the contributions from the candlelight evening have been designated towards projects that  enhance a “milieu de vie” for the residents such as: Medical equipment,  three therapeutic elevator door wrappings  for our long term care units, and the installation of a Sky Factory Imagery on one of the dementia units.

The funds generated from this year’s candlelight evening will help finance the creation of a Wellness Room, to… Continue reading
