So the mother I'd mentioned months earlier ended up going to a hospital for some
serious surgery to her legs,and will be at that fairly big and new
hospital for a period of time.

The hospital itself has 2 auditoriums and 2 conference rooms just on the ground floor.

Which I assume my mother could rent for free for a hour at a time to hold
productions for the benefit of Oakville's hospital
patients.
Meanwhile the non-for-profit mom is a director of got Service Canada
approval to hire 3 studentsmer to work on a project
called "A New Immigrants Guide to Oakville"

which at this stage could produce a boring pamphlet to
Oakville shopping malls or it could be something
with a little more magic to it
Audio mini plays for hospital patients IS A THING?

Sounds kind of redundant with iPods, CD Players, etc.

Well in Oakville seniors still have some political influence,so this hospital has a geriatric centre
as well as a grand piano in the lobby.Volunteers play the thing regularly with tunes
that were popular in the 1950's 1960s and 1970s

They also harvest all the help from volunteers,who run the gift shops,provide transport for
patients to various locations in the hospital,etc

Oakville Trafalgar Memorial is
composed of 3 eight story building linked by a main hallway.Wheelchair door plates everywhere and TV screens nearly as plentiful.

And if its of any interest,the hospital's designer put the maternity ward
right beside the financial services department

So the mother I mentioned a few months ago endured what the medical profession
politely calls a "bi-lateral amputation"

So of reasonably sound mind but not body.

So she went to a long term care facility run by the
government

Unlike private nursing homes,where the folks not quite sound of mind are shuffled off to the top floor with a lock-out key for the elevator

in the gov't facilities
"they are amongst us"

What that means is after I left mother in one pod I got lost and was wandering through
pod after pod,totally unable to escape since
the EXIT doors don't open unless you go through the main entrance.

Which meant in one pod an old lady was shouting at me
"Go Away,you don't belong here,Go Away"

and in another pod two portuguese speaking seniors in wheelchairs were following
me around,hoping I would lead them to a functioning
EXIT and the "Promised Land" outside

Basically in there you go in circles.
