Last December, residents at Points West Living Stettler were treated to a special Christmas photo shoot. 

Recreation Coordinator Deidre Northrop reached out to a local photographer who agreed to lend props to enhance the photos. Care partners helped residents do their hair and makeup and find festive clothing to wear for the occasion.

“Christmas photos help the residents feel excited for the holidays,” said Recreation Therapist Nicole Fischer. “It is a rare occasion where they get to dress up and have a chance for a photo, which some haven’t had in a while.”

The photos were given to the residents for their rooms, hung up in the cottages, and sent out to families as a Merry Christmas from their loved ones. 

 “Christmas photos were a success in 2021,” said Deidre, “so we wanted to do them again in 2022. Everyone was excited and families always show their appreciation for these special moments. Hopefully, we can make this an ongoing tradition.”
