Busy boxes from Queensview

A look inside one of Queensview Retirement Community’s Busy Boxes.

Thank you so much to Queensview Retirement Community residents and staff for your wonderful donation of 30 ‘Busy Boxes’ to the Brant Community Healthcare System (BCHS) Foundation.

The Busy Boxes provided by Queensview Retirement Community are useful tools for Paediatrics, the Rehabilitation Department and the Mental Health Department at the BCHS, giving younger and older patients an opportunity to relax, distract themselves from stressful situations or while away some hospital wait time.

Residents and staff at Queensview Retirement Community donated their time and effort to populating each box with a variety of interesting objects such as a stress ball, stickers, markers, Tic Tacs, puzzle books and notepads.
