Sélection Retraite spoiled moms and grandmas on Mother’s Day
The circumstances surrounding COVID-19 have changed the way we are celebrating major events this year. The creative staff at all the Sélection Retraite complexes are providing our residents with activities and celebrations to brighten their daily lives, all while respecting public-health directives.
To celebrate Mother’s Day with love and affection, various initiatives were set up in different complexes, including Mail for Mom. Those with a mother or grandmother living in one of our residences were invited to write them a quick note that our staff then transformed into a greeting card. The cards were distributed on Mother’s Day.
Plants, flowers and herbs were distributed to all the ladies living in our complexes. To encourage the local economy, all greenery came from local nurseries and merchants.
In order to allow residents to be closer to their loved ones, safe visiting rooms, at Sélection Graham and Mont-Royal, and a mailbox, at Sélection Manoir Notre-Dame in Roberval, were installed to facilitate safe conditions.
During a special Mother’s Day edition of the TV program “En direct de l’univers,” certain of our Sélection Retraite resident centenarians made a brief appearance. It was a musical evening they will never forget!
