Northwood residents at the Halifax County Exhibition
Kaye’s place will be located at our Halifax Campus across from the Shirley Burnstein Hall. It’s named in honour of Katherine Dickson, the mother of Jim Dickson, who was the recipient of the 2017 Hedley G. Ivany Live More Award. Katherine has Alzheimer’s and dementia and is a resident at Northwood.
Sometimes family and friends can lose their connection with loved ones because of the impacts of dementia. Kaye’s Place will provide a home like environment and offer a special space to reconnect. In addition to being used for scheduled family times, Kaye’s Place will provide space for residents if they need a change from their regular environment, or some redirection.
It will also provide opportunity for residents to attend small group programs with the interdisciplinary team. These activities may include folding laundry, sensory stimulation, picture sorting, etc. Kaye’s Place will have a main room, a quiet room and a storage area for supplies used for resident engagement and programming.
Thanks to the generous support of donors, Kaye’s place is scheduled to open February, 2018
