                                                   Deer Lodge Centre   July 27, 2007

  The ceremony recognizing employees for long service
in health care was held on Friday, June 22nd. The turnout
was fantastic! A good time was had by all. Real Cloutier,
COO, presented staff with gifts in honour of their years
of service. In addition, retirees from the past year were
awarded retirement gifts. Refreshments were supplied
by our catering staff and the event flowed smoothly, with
time in between presentations for staff to mingle and
chat. A big thank you to Doris Simard and volunteers
for all of their hard work in making this a successful
and memorable time for all. Congratulations to all who
received a long service award and/or pin!”

      2007 Memory Walk
                                                   Thank you to all of our participants, volunteers, and
                                                staff for participating in our Deer Lodge Memory Walk.
                                                We spent the morning of Monday June 4th on Main Street
                                                and walking our route around the outside of Deer Lodge.
                                                It was a beautiful day and we had a great time promoting
                                                awareness of Alzheimer’s disease. We are already looking
                                                forward to making the event even better for next June.
                                                Hope you will all take the opportunity next year to walk
                                                with us in support of the Alzheimer’s Society.

                      This program looks at sexuality and intimacy as basic
                      human rights that should not be denied simply because
                      the person has a level of decreased cognizance and
                      lives in a nursing home. The video tastefully shows
                      various sexual expressions, the effect of those
                      expressions on the residents and those around them,
                      and methods to allow freedom of sexual expression
                      while maintaining a comfortable environment for other
                      residents and staff.

                      The most comprehensive psychiatric nursing care
                      planning text available assists students and
                      practitioners in providing effective care in a variety of
                      settings. Clear presentation of information, consistent
                      use of the nursing process, correlation of nursing and
                      medical diagnoses, and prioritization of interventions
                      make this text an invaluable resource. Grounded in the
                      latest classification of the Diagnostic and Statistical

                      most current list of NANDA-approved nursing
                      diagnoses, this text covers a wide range of disorders,
                      their psychopathology, and appropriate nursing
                      interventions with rationales. Care plans use real
                      clinical situations and include therapeutic and
                      nontherapeutic dialogue examples to familiarize
                      nurses with likely scenarios and equip them with the
                      tools they need to feel confident in any clinical setting.

  1) Do you pick up litter off the street?
  2) Do you know and admire the man in the above right picture?
  3) Do you use your recycle bin at home?
  4) Do you care what kind of world we leave for our children or grandchildren?
   5) Are you concerned about the garbage we produce at Deer Lodge?

If you answered yes to any of these questions or are concerned about other environmental issues then you may
want to volunteer for the

DEER LODGE GREEN TEAM! What is this you may ask?
Deer Lodge Management is supportive of the formation of a committee by Glenn King, OT Long-term care to
review and make recommendations in regards to the impacts of Solid Waste (otherwise known as garbage and
recycling) at this center.

I am looking for staff that are enthusiastic, concerned and want to bring ideas forward so we can use the 3 Rs
in our workplace. REDUCE REUSE AND RECYCLE.

Particular members from nursing, housekeeping, property services, kitchen, secretarial, management,
information services and other. The size of the committee will be set so as to be effective. However, even if you
don’t serve on the Green Team we need dept. reps to be a liaison to report issues from your department to the
Green Team and convey information back to your dept from the Green Team.

For more information contact Glenn King, ext 2235. or
