Giselle delights in making trifle at Beckley Farm Lodge

We need your help to build communities where people of all ages and abilities can experience wellbeing and happiness. At 100 years young, Giselle has a history that many have only seen in movies. While head of the French Red Cross, Giselle negotiated a 4-hour truce with German forces in order to evacuate civilians from an area active military engagement. Travelling over 80km, over mine-strewn roads, Giselle and the Red Cross women moved 30 civilians to safety. For her heroics and bravery she was awarded the Croix de Guerre and the Red Cross Gold Medal of Honour. As a retired army Captain she moved to Canada in 1950, where she married and raised three children. Giselle built a life in Canada teaching French, and being an integral part of her community. At the age of 93, when challenges of day to day living became too much Giselle moved to her new community at Beckley Farm Lodge. Loosing independence due to health and aging does not mean losing everything you have worked in your life to achieve, including having the comforts and warmth of being at home. You can help Giselle by making a donation to our Feels Like Home campaign, and give something back to those who gave so much for us.
