Meet Brenda

March 23, 2023 A Day in the Life
Brenda, a Parkland resident sits at a round table with a photo of her late husband, Clyde in the background.

Brenda and Clyde spent their entire life living in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia in their family home. Having raised four children, Brenda found it difficult to think about leaving the place where they raised their family and shared so many memories but when Clyde fell ill their household and upkeep became too much – they knew it was time to look for other options.

“I wasn’t ready to let go, but I knew he needed to be here,” said Brenda from her assisted living suite at Parkland Cape Breton. “Everything is done – the laundry, the cleaning, the meals.” As Clyde’s needs progressed, he was able to receive the care he required from the comfort of their suite. Brenda and Clyde spent ten months together at Parkland Cape Breton before he passed away. “This is life. These are the things that happen, but at least we had everything taken care of before it happened.” Brenda continues to enjoy her time at Parkland having meals with her friends and knowing she isn’t alone. “This is my home now and I will always be here.”
