Thank you to the Extendicare Vulcan staff who work tirelessly every day and night to keep our residents comfortable, safe, healthy and entertained.

Extendicare would especially like to single out one special staff member, Donna B. who at the tender age of 21 walked through the doors of Extendicare Vulcan on the morning of March 17, 1968 and started her new job as a housekeeper. We value the service you have given to our home and for dedicated a large portion of your life and career to Extendicare and we wish you the very best in your retirement. You are special to Extendicare and to your colleagues and we know there are many other staff following in your footsteps of providing this privileged service to our much loved residents.

Happy 50th anniversary Extendicare Vulcan. May you continue helping people live better!

Mr. R's Remarkable Reunion

Mr. R. was in his early 80’s when he received a phone call. It was from his long lost brother whom Mr. R had not seen since they were separated as children in Austria.

Mr. R. was in his early 80’s when he received a phone call. It was from his long lost brother whom Mr. R had not seen since they were separated as children in Austria. His brother had tracked him down and they began talking regularly by phone. As much as his brother wanted to come and visit, he couldn’t afford it. Determined to see his brother, Mr. R. decided to try his luck on the Video Lottery Terminal in an effort to raise the necessary funds. It worked! Mr. R. won the money he needed to bring his brother over for a visit. Naturally, they were elated to be reunited after all those years.

A Wish to Ride a Horse

Mrs. T. was 102 when she came to live with us and, when the Recreational Therapist asked her what she would like to do, she responded by telling her she had always wanted to ride a horse. As luck would have it, our recreational therapist was an avid horse person. With the help of some friends, brought a gentle horse to our home. At the age of 103, Mrs. T. got her wish and got up on a horse and went for a ride. Mrs. T. passed away about a year later at the age of 104 but she had fulfilled her wish for riding a horse.
