Nurses Week was celebrated at Bayfield Manor from May 7 to 11. To make it all inclusive for staff, we call it Wellness Week.
Daily draws and events made the week a bit more fun and, hopefully, relaxing for all staff. Local vendors supplied some of our draw gifts, such as Crossfit Kemptville, Five Star, Home and Beyond. Heather Riddell, Reflexologist, offered her services for staff and it was well received, she had a line up. Karen Quigley, of Saltastic, offered her knowledge on the benefits of salt therapy, and staff can’t wait to try this out.
Our own activity personnel, Ram, offered some relaxation techniques through his Yoga training, which helped us all chill out. Administration brought in coffee and homemade cookies, and treated everyone to cake and a Subway lunch. Much appreciated by all. Daily draws gave some things that staff could use on the job: water bottles, gum, hand gel, Kleenex, and lip balm, to name a few.
