Patsy's Hallway Floral Shoppe

St. Camillus Life Plan Community hosts resident flower shop to bring joy during unprecedented times.

St. Camillus Life Plan Community hosts resident flower shop to bring joy during unprecedented times.

Over the last few years, Trader Joes in Wauwatosa has been generously donating flowers to St. Camillus every week.  Staff uses the flower donations for different life enrichment activities and to decorate throughout the community.  Flowers are also delivered to hospice clients and those who may need uplifting.   All leftover flowers are placed outside of Patsy’s apartment, a resident in St. Camillus’ Assisted Living, for St. Camillus staff to share with their own families.  Patsy calls it her “Hallway Floral Shoppe.”

Patsy’s Hallway Floral Shoppe opened in August and was created because Patsy missed volunteering due to COVID restrictions.  The flowers have brought staff and great conversation to her door and have created new opportunities for both Patsy and the staff at St. Camillus.  Patsy will be spearheading staff projects for Thanksgiving and Christmas to bring teams closer together and to add a special touch of hope to the upcoming holiday season.

“I try to make everyone happy and I get to give back.” - Patsy, St. Camillus resident
