His Days of Vines and Roses

Points West Living Penticton

Angie and Bernie and a Rose

Bernie Strohmann moved to Points West Living’s Athens Creek Penticton in 2013, along with his companion Angie. With his horticulture background, Bernie naturally stepped into the role of Athen’s Gardener. He started by taking care of the flowers on the main patio and the Athen’s rose patch—a two-tiered garden bed.

Over the years Bernie included other residents in the gardening of the main balconies, but has been constant in his loving care of the rose bushes.

Beautiful and plentiful, you can find Bernie’s roses in the lobby, on the dining tables or best of all, in the hands of the Employee Care Partners. It is a wonderful way for Bernie to continue to participate in the meaningful activity he loves while giving care to others.
