At 86 years young, Eapen uses his arm bike every day in his Misericordia Place room for at least 20 minutes every day.
“I’m so grateful for the bike,” he says, “I used to walk across my floor to the north side, but with (COVID) restrictions in place I can only walk on the south side for now.”
If Eapen could visit anywhere in Manitoba, he dreams of heading to his favourite East Indian restaurant: Southern Spices on St. Mary’s Road in Winnipeg – with his wife of 53 years, Marykutty, who also happens to be an MP resident!
For now, thanks to our friends at Southern Spices Restaurant and the ever caring and creative Misericordia Place staff, a special lunch was the perfect way to celebrate this Valentine’s Day.
Southern Spices opened their kitchen early today just to make this dream come true for Eapen and Marykutty! And to make the lunch even more magical, a Resident Care Manager who is from the same region of India as our happy couple brought in special Indian dishes from her house to serve the food on. There was an Indian music playlist and Recreation Therapist Kevin played the part of waiter for the meal.
