“We Help People To Live Life!”
Mission Statement of Extendicare York

Vickie Perreault, Activity Director for Extendicare York, is shown with Susan Mydonyk, owner of the Dollar Klub, located in the Hanmer Valley Shopping Centre. Susan is one of this year’s “Secret Santa’s”, a term of endearment used to describe the many people and organizations which donate merchandise, time and money to help brighten up the Christmas Season for many of the clients at Extendicare York.

   Situated in the greater city of Sudbury , Extendicare York is an accredited 288-bed, multi-level long-term care centre with 24-hour nursing and supportive care, as well as in-house rehabilitation services. As a means of enhancing the quality of life of their clients, Extendicare York fosters dedicated partnerships with various organizations and individuals, such as Susan, within the community.

   The Christmas Stockings that were being prepared by Vickie and Susan consisted of items that were provided through the generosity of both The Dollar Klub, and one of the families from Extendicare York. The project was initiated by a kind lady whose parents were living at Extendicare York. Upon the passing of her mother, recently, both the daughter and her father decided to do something “nice” for the residents and provided funding to help purchase stockings which will be handed out on Christmas morning.

   Vickie informed us that there are many “Secret Santas” working behind the scenes at Extendicare York. Each of them adds to the quality of life of residents during this festive time of year.

   Vickie also wanted to remind everyone that the Annual Christmas Bazaar will be held on Friday, December 9, 2005 at Extendicare York which is located just beside the Memorial Hospital in Sudbury between the hours of 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. While at the bazaar, visitors should consider getting a special Christmas Wreath made-to-order right on the spot.
