Even with the weather a little on the chilly side on Oct. 31, the Heron Terrace life enrichment team still ensured residents and visiting children had a Halloween to remember.

Donning warm jackets, scarves and hats, residents made their way to the front of the Windsor, Ont. long-term care community with team members to welcome young trick-or-treaters on Halloween and to hand out chocolate bars and other sweets.

Given the occasion, many residents wore their favourite costume to fully embrace the spirit of the day. Team members were also dressed in an array of creative costumes to join the fun, explains Heron Terrace life enrichment manager Sheila dela Pena-Romero.

There were some unique costumes worn by team members – including a trio that dressed as a taco, a nacho chip and a jar of salsa.

Most importantly, residents had a great time engaging with the children and team members, Sheila says.

“Residents enjoyed their trick-or-treating with the kids and staff,” she tells S&R Today. “Despite the cold weather, they dressed up and came outside to join the fun.”

Sheila says life enrichment team members enjoyed the creativity that came with the day and had fun doing everything from packing up the treats to inflating the large Frankenstein that stood at the front of the home to welcome the children.

“Everyone had fun and enjoyed their goodies,” she says.
