A Success Story!

 

 

Back in November 2014 we received the following request.

"I work at a long term care home in Dundas with a large percentage of our residents who suffer from dementia.  We have purchased your book and would love to enlarge a number of the images to hang in the halls of our 'home' to assist in 'engaging' and reminiscing with our residents with cognitive impairment."

 

Working with Karen McClemont, Resident Program Manager, Blackadar Continuing Care Centre in Dundas we agreed on a selection of images that were felt to be the best for the situation. Staples Office Supplies in the Ancaster Meadowlands then produced from files supplied by GHPCC two copies of each of the six images. One set was placed in existing frames at the home while the other set, to go on another floor in the home, was mounted at "Sealed-Art" at the corner of Main Street East and Gage Avenue in Hamilton.

  The result has been a success all round. The residents are happy, the staff are happy and GHPCC is happy as a result of learning that Staples would not print the images directly from the book since it was copyright material. Kudos to them.
