Our Remarkable Moments
Hip Injury RecoveryMr. E had suffered a broken hip. While his hip had healed sufficiently for him to start moving around again, Mr E only wanted to lie in bed.
Mr. E had suffered a broken hip. While his hip had healed sufficiently for him to start moving around again, Mr E only wanted to lie in bed. As a result, he was getting weaker and weaker. The care team at Preston, and one team member in particular, saw the impact it was having on him both physically and mentally. Through the art of gentle, persistent persuasion, the team was able convince him to start getting up. They also began giving him appealing, texture-appropriate food so that he would be able to rebuild his strength. It took a while but today DE is he is out of bed and back in action. He especially enjoys basking in the sunshine and is part of the Extendicare community once again.
Comfort in Our HomeHD was a retired professor from the University of Saskatchewan and he was very unhappy when he came to live with us.
Mr D was a retired professor from the University of Saskatchewan and he was very unhappy when he came to live with us. He felt confined to the home and was convinced he had lost all his freedom. He wanted to transfer as soon as possible and had his name on a waiting list for another home in Saskatoon. But when the call came to offer him a private room at one of the newest homes in Saskatoon, he declined. During the time he was waiting, he had developed strong relationships with staff and other residents and grown to love living at Preston. He wasn’t moving anywhere else because Preston was his home. Now he walks around with the biggest smile on his face greeting everyone in his path.
