Creating moments of joy at IH’s Adult Day Services programs

May 28, 2024
Jean, an adult day program coordinator at the Village by the Station in Penticton, chats with Mick, a regular visitor to the program.

Jean Kearney leans in close to speak to Mick, smiling widely as she grasps his hand and holds his arm like a lifelong friend. They chat about his wife, Jill, whom he met in Sheffield, England. In his soft Yorkshire accent, Mick tells Jean he’d marry Jill all over again. “I married her 61 years ago and I’ve been chasing her ever since,” chuckles Mick.

“It sounds like to me Sheffield is where your best memories are, Mick,” says Jean, an adult day program coordinator at the Good Samaritan Village by the Station care facility in Penticton.
