Sara 12th Mar 2020 Activity Director
I wrote to several on here regarding corresponding back and forth it started out well then we never heard back and we could only assume the fires there had something to do with it....but we were very excited to add this to our weekly activities and then it just dried up.
anyway, we are a 20 bedded assisted living unit in a very rural area of canada, so if anyone wants to talk to us, please email me [email protected]
