Roundabout Rosewood
September 2010

What's Happening?
Hello everyone from the staff and residents of Rosewood. As summer wanes and fall approaches let us continue to enjoy our beautiful island – its natural beauty and culture.

On May 21st our manager, David Blanchard, announced he was leaving after a 10 year tenure at Rosewood. Three weeks later on June 4th was David’s last day. We wish David all the best as he has achieved a dream by becoming owner-manager of Grafton House in Charlottetown. Good luck David! J

We immediately began the search for a new manager while “the momma” filled in the blanks. Carol had a busy few weeks.

I would like to introduce our new manager to you – Tina Marsh Wadden. Tina is married to Gerald Wadden, lives in Cornwall and has 2 children Kyrsten and Zach, and a stepson Matthew. Tina has 17 years of experience working in Geriatrics and palliative care. She was in a management position for 6 years overseeing 35-40 employees. Tina says “I am extremely excited about my new role. I feel I have the best of both worlds now – being a manager and working with seniors. Residents and staff have been very welcoming. I look forward to many years ahead at Rosewood.”

Did You Know?
During all the changes we were wondering if we would be able to go on our planned trip to Newfoundland to the wedding of my nephew Alan McNutt to Jessica Doyle. We got to go! On July 23rd Robert, Lori, Gwen and I flew to Newfoundland. We represented the island relatives at the wedding and had a great reunion with the McNutt family. We stayed one week and go some sightseeing in as well.

Thanks go out to Jessica Vos for the fine job that she did planting the new flower/shrub beds. Also, thanks to France Vos and the Pleasant Valley 4-H club members who planted some annuals and tended to them as part of their community project.

Get Involved
Stephanie Lutz has been working here at Rosewood since May as the Activities Coordinator. We have asked her to tell us a bit about what she has been doing:

“Hi everyone! I have begun the process of taking on the role of Activities Coordinator for Rosewood. I am a recent UPEI graduate and have loved working at Rosewood as a summer placement – so much so that I decided to stay even longer! J I have enjoyed “learning the ropes” of Rosewood and have found that the jobs that I loved doing the most were those that involved interacting with the residents and bringing excitement to their day through activities and fun. I look forward to implementing a set schedule of events and new activities that everyone can enjoy. I will also be contributing to our column each month to let you know what is happening at Rosewood.

Just in the past two months that I have been here we have had a lot of new activities and events at Rosewood. In July we had a Canada day celebration, started weekly bingo games, and I created an activities bulletin board so that residents can see what’s happening for that day and even monthly. This board has all kinds of fun stuff, like the weather, daily quotes and jokes, birthday announcements and a monthly schedule of events. July was a great kick-start to my role and the positive advancements to activities we have made.

In August we had a movie night, arts & crafts, manicures, and a local resident named Katie has come in a few times to play piano for us, and she is quite talented! J We also took residents to a show at Harmony House Theatre which was very entertaining and lots of fun!

We have had a very busy few months here at Rosewood and it has been full of fun and excitement. I look forward to all that’s to come and the work I will be doing as the new Activities Coordinator!”
