I don't really have a favourite musician, but I do love many genres of music! Anything from rock to classical.
My amazing, supportive family. They’re always supporting my goals and dreams, and helped shape me to who I am today.
I'd go back to the late 1990's to when my sister and I were little kids. I'd like to re-experience my childhood and all the memories we created, and appreciate them more. I used to wish my childhood away to be an adult and now I realize how important my childhood was.
My time here at MLP Residence has taught me to enjoy the simple things in life, stop and smell all the roses, and most importantly SMILE!
I love all music. I have music playing at home, in my car and at work. I enjoy everything from Country to Rock; from Hip Hop to Alternative.
The best gift I have ever received are my children. They keep my life interesting. Life wouldn’t be the same without them.
I would go back to the 1970’s. Life was easy and everyone seemed to have lot of fun. I could see me wearing bell bottoms and velour shirts!
I am new to MLP – but am looking forward to all the exciting new challenges!
I don’t really have one favourite musician. Even though I can’t “carry a tune in a bucket” as my mom used to say, I love all types of music. Up beat tunes always make me happy and want to dance.
The best gift that I have ever received are my children and my grandchildren. I am very blessed with a wonderful family.
If I could, I would go back in time I would go back to my high school time in the early 1970’s. I enjoyed high school, my friends, sports and my teachers. Time went by so fast during that period that I would like to revisit that period again.
From the start that I have joined the MLP Team, I feel a great sense of caring. The residents’ well-being and happiness are first and foremost at MLP.
I enjoy several types of music, but if I had to choose one musician, I think I’d pick Ed Sheeran. He’s extremely talented and successful, yet remains humble, kind, and grounded. And on top of all that, he’s adorable.
One of the best gifts I ever received was a coffee mug from my kids. It was the first Summer I’d left them home alone while I worked. They spent days working together on the computer, designing it with their favourite photos. Whenever I use the mug, I’m reminded how lucky I am to be their mom.
If I could go back in time, I’d like to live life without cell phones. When you met people face to face, remembered phone numbers, sent handwritten letters, when kids went outside from sun up to sun down playing games like jump rope, hopscotch, and hide and seek. When family time was board games and dinner time had no electronic distractions. I guess I just miss the simpler way of life.
Louis Armstrong. I love all Jazz and Classical. Little bit of Country as well.
Life. It has given me the knowledge to help others, and most of all it has given me wonderful children and grand-children.
I would go back to Klondike Days – 1800’s. There wasn’t the hassle and bustle of everything – it was laid back and in order to cope you relied on your neighbours for help and endurance.
It has taught me patience and understanding of not only the residents but also other team members and how to cope with everyone’s needs.
My favorite musician is the Chipmunks, I play them with the grand kids.
The best gift I’ve ever received was a pair of toe socks – why? “Everyone need toe socks, don’t you”
If I could go back in time, the year would be 2010; the year my mother passed, just to hear her voice one more time.
I don’t really have a favourite musician. I like listening to Pop, Country and a little bit of Rock – but not Hard Rock. I like Nickelback, Bryan Adams and Adele.
Have to say this past Christmas – I received a 3D picture of a wolf head. Also having all of my family here is the best gift of all …
It would be when my other was growing up in the 1940’s. When rent was only $27 a month, you could buy a house for $3,000 and bread was only 10 cents a loaf.
My time at MLP has taught me to have more respect for seniors. We are all going to be there one day as well. Listen to what they have to say and appreciate that they have their own opinions … extend towards them a helping hand when needed
My favourite bands are Nickelback and AC/DC. However, I like pretty much all types of music as long as it has a good beat to the tune.
The best gift that I have ever received is my lovely wife, and soon to be born my first child!
I would go back to my childhood. Life was carefree with no worries or responsibilities. Life seemed so very simple then.
Although I am new to MLP Team, I have learned and realized the importance of team work and the great benefits that come with being part of a wonderful group of people – whose aim is to serve the amazing residents who live here.
I listen to all music. I like a variety of styles and sounds. Music makes everyone happy.
My 3 children, I love being a mom. It is the best job to have in the world.
I would go back to the early 90s and change some of my decisions I made as a teenager (budget money better).
I love all types of music, anything from rock, hip-hop and country
My grandmother’s wedding rings when I turned 16
I would go back to the times of prohibition because people were more carefree
That life is short. Never take the time you have with people for granted.
I don’t really have a favourite – I like all music with a good beat, so that I can get up and dance.
The best gift that I have ever received is the birth of my two grandsons – Avery & Kaleb.
I would go back to the late 1980’s when my children were young so that I could enjoy them all over again in a more relaxed manner.
I am new to the MLP Team but look forward to answering this question in the very near future.
I can’t say that I have a favourite musician. I love all kinds of music. Country music would be one of my favourites. Music makes me happy.
My beautiful girls. They stole my heart from day one.
I would go back to the 1800s, life was less complicated. I would love being a stay at home mom, would love being with my family. Family time is always number one to me.
My favourite musicians are Stevie Ray Vaughan and Frank Sinatra. Though both their styles are different they are awesome.
The best gifts ever received by me are my awesome children. Though they keep me very busy they are always there when I need a hug which makes it all worthwhile.
If I could I would travel back to the 1920’s. I love the clothes and jewellery of that era and they did not have to worry about technology!
Even though I am new at MLP I have already learnt a lot of things, mainly the experiences of our seniors whom I am lucky to have an opportunity to serve. I am sure in the years ahead I will learn a lot more and look forward to gaining the knowledge.
My favorite musician would be my best friend, Bobbi-Jo Vandenburg. She has such a pure soulful country voice that I could listen to for hours.
The best gift I have ever received are my 3 beautiful children. They make me not take life for granted. I cherish each and every single day with them.
I would say that I would choose the 80’s. Mainly because it has the basics of everything we have today. It was a peaceful time in which life wasn’t, no economic crisis all around.
My time at MLP Residence has taught me that whether your young or elderly we all have a purpose here on earth.
I enjoy all kinds of music. I don’t have one particular person or band that I listen to. I do enjoy everything, from old country to rock, and anything in between.
The best gift ever was when I was able to put medals on a veteran for Remembrance Day. Not only was it a Remembrance Day, it was also my birthday. I felt honoured and privileged to be able to take part in assisting the gentleman in his day of honour.
If I could go back in time, I would go back to the Victorian Era. I’ve always been attracted to the architectural designs of that time. Life seemed simpler than now. To me, life seemed to go a little slower, so you were able to have the time to enjoy the small things; like smelling the roses.
Can’t say I could narrow it to only one. I will sing to any type of music … and everything! The shampoo bottles never complain!
My amazing family. I can honestly say they are top knotch and I don’t know where I would be without them and their support.
I would go back to the 1600’s in Barbados. Recently I was on a cruise and visited the oldest church in Barbados. The church was empty and dark. I would love to see it “alive” and full!
I am new to MLP; but was welcomed with smiles from all staff and the residents. It feels like home and I am looking forward to sharing these walls with great people within them!
My favourite musician is Bon Jovi.
The best gift I have ever received was a bouquet of flowers for no reason.
If I were to ever travel back in time, it would be in the 1920’s to get a better understanding of the depression and its effect on life.
I have understood what it really means to be a part of a “team” – one which cares for their residents and their well-being.
As I am aging and becoming more humble and grateful for my presence, I find I am enjoying music that relates to the strength of spirit. I love chanting hymns, opera, foreign languages like Spanish, and more recently the Indian language.
The best gift I have ever received is my partner. He gave me the gift of joy. His spirit is light, while very grounded to the earth. I am of spirit so he is my balance with earth’s connection.
If I could go back in time it would be to the year 1989. My strength of spirit awakened. This was a journey of self, but not selfish. My year of physical accomplishment in body building championships. I overcame insecurities through training, which I recognized were not necessarily my own. My journey has awakened the depth of a strong spirit within me. Today I found joy in helping others with their strength of spirit, their voice within.
I love all types of music, music can make you dance, it can make you cry, and it can describe a feeling and awaken a memory.
My best gift was one I had given to my sister. I drove to her home in Hamilton the day of her birthday, rang her doorbell, she was so shocked she slammed the door in my face, opened it again, and gave me the biggest hug ever.
I would go back to 2001, as my mom, my best friend passes that year. Oh, to have one more day, week, or years!
Don’t think I can pick one. I love county music, old and new.
I got a walking doll for Christmas years ago. I still remember this as my best Christmas gift, ever. It was what I had asked Santa for.
1976, I would go back to my high school days, a happy and care-free time.
Katy Perry is my favourite musician. All her songs are about past experiences and how she overcame them.
The best gift I ever received was my puppy when I was a young girl. He's a one-of-a-kind, high energy dog who loves to play all day! Over the years we have built a strong bond that I love.
If I could go back in time, I would go back to 2008. This is the year I went to Niagara Falls for a girls trip with my nana and sister.
Dire Straits - I still listen to the music I listened to in college.
The best gift I ever received was a mirrored puzzle box. It taught me things are not always as they seem!
Turn of the 19th century when science and industry made great strides forward
I've learned how to listen with a compassionate ear.
I can't pick just one musician, but country is my favourite genre. I have music playing when I can!
I can't pick a favourite gift, I rather enjoy giving than receiving.
I can't choose a time I'd go back to but if I could go anywhere I'd choose Portugal, I've heard so many great things about that destination!
