At Home With Helen

March 2, 2022 At home with

Helen is a resident at Parkland Cape Breton in Sydney. She first moved to Parkland into her two-bedroom, All-Inclusive suite.

Where were you were born and where did you call home?

I was born and raised in Sydney, Nova Scotia.

What did you do for work and where did you go to school?

I worked in the telecom industry for 30 years as an operator before retiring.

What surprised you the most about moving into Parkland?

The management is nice. You feel like family as you walk through the doors. I was also surprised by the amount of people that I knew that lived here already.

What’s your favourite thing about your suite? 

We have a two-bedroom suite and I love the extra space. We have an extra washroom and a washer and dryer in our suite.

What’s your favourite design feature of your home?

The foyer is so open and welcoming. The staircase is beautiful, it is the best in Cape Breton.

What’s your favourite wellness or social activity to do or attend at Parkland?

I take part in everything that goes on. I love to keep busy and if the programs are offered why not attend? My husband and I do exercise classes every morning.

What’s your favourite pastime when you’re not busy with friends or activities?

Tabish. I have a group that meets every Wednesday evening.

What’s a meal that you get excited about here?

All the meals! When you don’t have to make them, they are all delicious. Our Valentine’s Day dinner was amazing!

Who do you look forward to seeing every day?

I enjoy talking to all my friends that I’ve made here.
