The folks at Jubilee Manor know how to celebrate Christmas.

Staff gave residents a treat with annual celebrations at the Rosemont facility.

The amazing buffet spread of sweets and savories were enjoyed by the residents, their friends and families, volunteers and staff.

Amid the ‘decked out halls’ musicians Ruth Langevin and Dorothy Hamilton complemented the afternoon by playing classical Christmas music using a myriad of different instruments – piano, flute, guitar and harp.

Music is one of those universal things that is enjoyed by all, at any age, and local choirs and musicians in Nelson make an extra effort to share it with the elderly.

It is impressive, at this time of year, to see people making time to reach out to those who are limited in their mobility.

The residents in Jubilee have lived their lives performing different roles; they’ve raised families, had careers and all have contributed a unique biography to the world.

Rose Anderson, one of the Activity Coordinators at Jubilee emphasized how everyone kicks in that little extra for the residents.

All year ‘round but at this time of year she’s impressed by the little nuances of gratitude she sees. Whether it’s the staff putting up a little decoration, sharing a smile or volunteers taking time to consider and doing something to add a bit of joy to the world.
