The Eden Registry - The Eden Alternative®
We don’t like to brag, but … this is kind of a big deal for us. In March 2017 Christie Gardens was honoured with the distinction of being the first organization in Ontario to be approved to join the Eden Registry by The Eden Alternative, an "international, non-profit organization dedicated to creating quality of life for Elders and their care partners, wherever they may live”. The Eden Alternative Philosophy, expressed in their Mission, Vision, Values, and Principles closely aligns with our own and we are excited to have the opportunity to learn from them and share our own experiences. https://goo.gl/EVDxFI
Flashback to the 1920s!
Our wonderful George Brown Activation students threw a bash celebrating the 1920s. We had a ball, and especially enjoyed their creative photobooth!

Hands on Exotics 2017
What a wild and fun time we had with Hands on Exotics! For the hour we had a baby kangaroo bouncing around the room, Netherland Dwarf rabbits hopping here and there, parrots squawking and singing, and so much more. We couldn't help but feel like we were in a warm, exotic place.
Taste of the Nations 2017

Yesterday the leadership team surprised our employees with a giant ice-cream bar, to show our appreciation for all the hard work they do. Recent family and resident survey results indicate Christie Gardens rates high on generosity, optimism, and trust. Thanks to our valuable employees, Christie is most definitely a community you can have faith in!
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from all of us to all of you.
Thank you Humewood Community School for coming to perform at our residence today. You sounded fantastic!
Write for Rights
Our Amnesty Letter-Writing Group held a Write for Rights event on December 10th, International Human Rights Day. Altogether, 75 letters were written and dozens of signatures added to petitions and postcards in support of people around the world whose human rights are being denied.
Lest we forget.
