Philip Feldberg Humanitarian Award

On July 19, Alison Cooke, RT, received the Philip Feldberg Humanitarian Award presented by the Stirling Manor where she has been providing Therapeutic Touch® for 26 years to those residents who request it. Stirling Manor has continued her contract for so many years because they have found that those who receive TT when first entering this long term care facility adjust better to the changes this has brought into their lives. As well, TT brings relaxation, a sense of well-being and better sleep patterns to those who receive it. For those residents with dementia related problems, TT can reduce anxiety and bring peace into their lives.
