Lori Kary, the recreation therapist and regional director of health and wellness for All Seniors Care had the idea to get residents involved in TikToks. She said it’s a great creative outlet for them and a way to stay connected to the world outside the home. The success of the TikTok videos & involvement of residents in video creations is now incorporated into activities at St Albert which is innovative and a first in Health & Wellness programming across Canada at All Seniors Care Living Centres.
