I Feel Safe
When it all happened [COVID-19] my daughter was so worried about me and she said ‘oh momma you’re gonna be bored’ and I said ‘no I got so much to do!’ They keep you so happy and well fed and entertained and you’re doing your exercises. There’s so much to do. I haven’t even gotten my drawers cleaned out yet [chuckling]. I’m quite content and happy. And the care, you know if you’re not feeling well, you can just dial 0 and they send you help. It’s really a peace of mind. You feel safe.

Every day, we have opportunities to take small steps that could lead to something big. Here are two examples of the power of simple friendliness.
I am part of a growing market called "seniors". Many corporations are seizing the opportunity of building communities to serve this segment of the population. Large sums of money are spent describing how wonderful each new building is. Accordingly, it is common for prospective residents and their children to visit different places to see if they match their advertisements.
A resident who recently moved into Delmanor Northtown, told me that she had visited several places where she felt unwelcome. In contrast, she said that the first resident whom she met upon entering our community, greeted her with a friendly "Hello!"
This resident said that she immediately decided that she should move here, and has been happy ever since. All the expensive marketing campaigns were less powerful than the small step of a person greeting a stranger in a friendly manner.
Once a month, our General Manager has a meeting with the residents to inform us of anything significant. One of his announcements seemed somewhat strange to us - he requested that we smile and greet the mailman who delivers our mail faithfully throughout the year. He explained that the mailman had said that he likes coming to our building because the residents are so friendly and make him feel welcome. Sadly, he said that this was not the case in other buildings that he serviced. Our manager encouraged us to keep up the good reputation.
The challenge for me and you is to keep spreading God's love in positive ways. Small steps like a smile or a simple greeting may seem very insignificant, but they certainly are easy steps to take.

I am astounded at how much better my legs feel since I have been using the NuStep machine and doing the hamstring stretches my LivingWell coach suggested I do.
My neurologist was amazed at how well I was doing and I feel it’s because of LivingWell™ program goals I’ve set on the stationary bike and the affect of the fitness classes I’m attending.
I suffer from back pain. I'm really amazed at how my personal exercise goals in the LivingWell™ program always seem to reduce the pain.

After touring Delmanor last year, I know instantly that this would be the right retirement home for me! I am ever so happy to be living here. The team/staff are all very helpful + caring towards me. The meals are so delicious; i'm able to participate in regular beneficial exercising programs; enjoy many musical programs, and we will soon have a new movie theatre!! I have made many new friends. When people ask "How do you like living at Delmanor?" I always say, "It's one of the best decisions I ever made."
I settled into Delmanor over 11 years ago in a smooth transition from home living due in no small part to the caring, friendly attitude of the staff. I became involved in some of the activities and have remained so over the years. I have made friends...
I settled into Delmanor over 11 years ago in a smooth transition from home living due in no small part to the caring, friendly attitude of the staff. I became involved in some of the activities and have remained so over the years. I have made friends with many of the residents and staff. In the early years I enjoyed 2 trips abroad with a family member and had summer vacations to the Cedar Grove Lodge in Ontario. Without question, I have never felt that I would be happier living elsewhere.
The Delmanor Experience
There’s something that makes The Delmanor Experience unique. It’s not just our buildings, or suites or ambience. It’s our team. Many of our team members have been with Delmanor from the very beginning. Others have just picked up the calling. But we’re all devoted to one common ideal. We come to work every day knowing we’re coming into your home, not just a building. And we are the better for it.
We know change can be hard. We want to get to know you, and we want you to know us. We know we’ve been invited to become part of a community that each and every one of us has a responsibility to enhance every day, in every way.
We’re focused on enhancing that daily experience by offering dependable, personalized attention you can count on – the way friends count on each other. We know it’s important that we each do our part, because this is where we’d want our parents to live.
