Johnathan’s Story

Because of you, Johnathan has a family again. And he’s aging with dignity.

At 73, Johnathan’s done a lot of living – and a lot of working.

“I was born in Pelican Narrows, but spent most of life working in Churchill,” he says sitting on a bench outside of The Madison on a warm summer afternoon.

“It was hard work, but it was what you made of it. I was often away from my family,” he says.

Today, he has lost touch with almost all of them. His parents passed away a long time ago, and he hasn’t seen or heard from his brothers and sisters in decades.

All that’s left is a black and white picture of his mom propped up on his dresser.

“I love that picture,
because it reminds me of being a kid…
a simpler time,”
he says.

But that doesn’t mean Johnathan is without a family.

“I find it good here,” he says, shuffling his walker back to his room.

“Nobody bothers me here and the people here are like family,” he says.

I have some visits from other residents,
and the staff here always check up on me.
