Bill and Edna Matthews are residents at Parkland West Bedford. They recently celebrated their 96th birthdays and 73rd wedding anniversary. To celebrate these impressive milestones, Chef John prepared their favourite meal, a roast beef dinner with gravy. This is the same meal the couple have enjoyed countless times over the years.

Bill is a former Halifax Dockyard worker and homebuilder (including building homes for their three children). He says this is comfort food, “It was always a nice treat after a long day of work.”

Comfort and community are two of the things Edna likes most about Parkland, “It’s nice to be here. The residents and team members are so friendly and there is always someone you can ask if you need a hand.”

At Parkland, we are committed to creating exceptional dining experiences for residents, especially when it comes to special events and celebrations. Our communities help residents live, laugh and enjoy time with friends, families and neighbours. We’re thrilled we could be a small part of making Bill and Edna’s momentous celebrations special.

Parkland West Bedford is designed for seniors who want to age in place
while enjoying an active and social lifestyle in retirement.
