Our Remarkable Moments
Horse and Buggy ride for residents at Extendicare ElmviewThe residents chose at the last Resident Council Meeting that they would like to go on a horse and buggy ride….and that is just what we did.
On Sept 15th Sanguine Clyde’s came in to Regina (2hr away) and pulled up at our front door of Extendicare Elmview with the biggest Clyde’s we have ever seen, to take us all back in time and reminisce about the good old days. The T.V. stations were also curious about this event and they featured it on the 6:00 pm news the same evening. We loaded up residents, family members and staff and off we went clip clopping down the street. We took a ride through Wascana Park. There were many smiles, laughter and stories from everyone. When we were finished some of the residents got their pictures taken with the Clyde’s and kissed and patted the horses. One of our residents said to the horse “Hey mister (laughing) if you can help me get out of here, I will give you all the oats you want.” Everyone was very happy with the outing. It was a great opportunity for the 5 senses and memories that they are so fond of. We are all here to help continue building that overflowing memory box of each resident.Lawry Tardif, Recreation Supervisor for Extendicare Elmview
