Spa Day delivers on its pampering promise
for PWL Cold Lake residents

August 27th, 2018

It took some time in planning and preparation, but a recent Spa Day at Points West Living Cold Lake was so successful, it will be revisited as a regular ‘Pamper Me Day’ in the months ahead. Hot shaves were on offer for the gentlemen, with manicures and pedicures for the ladies. Many residents showed up the afternoon of August 17 to enjoy the special treatment.

Ticklish feet

Recreation coordinator Amy Park planned the event, arranging for volunteers and supplies, and taking her turn on the ladies’ mani-pedi line, where she is in the photo above. “Lisa Engleder could not stop laughing at how ticklish her feet were,” says Amy, “but after we were all done, she picked out a lovely pink nail polish for both her fingernails and toenails, and said she felt beautiful.”

Nice shave

“Dave French came out for a nice shave by one of our HCA care partners,” Amy says. “Nicole Hammond volunteered time on her day off to pull off such a great afternoon.” The afternoon wrapped up with ice cream and cookies.

Rewarding experience

“We had some amazing feedback from all the residents involved, and from care partners,” Amy says. “It makes me feel so great knowing that something so small can be something so big and rewarding to others.”
