Holiday festivities at Westview Place

Christmas for residents of Westview Place came early again this year with two special visits last week.

The first was a man who needed no introduction to anyone, the Jolly Gent himself who made his way through the north and south wings of Westview bringing a special greeting for each individual and even a candy cane.

The day was extra special because it was a Christmas luncheon for residents as well as their families and included entertainment by harpist Simon Funk and some songs by Westview’s own Denis Wilton.

The week wrapped up Friday with a guest appearance by the Victorian Carollers in their traditional British garb as they strolled into the Westview wings singing the timeless carols of the season.

The extended care facility has a number of other events and activities for its residents throughout the holiday season and beyond.
