A new therapy program is coming to the Golden Manor.

Thanks to a $3,377 donation from the Shoppers Drug Mart Growing Women’s Health Campaign, the manor will be getting a new music and doll therapy program. Manor Director of Care Jennifer Bertrand says music and dolls are two of the non-medical approaches proven to work in managing behaviour and improving mood swings.

Bertrand says they will be setting up a nursery with dolls, cribs, strollers and a dressing station for their residents to use whenever they need to.
