How to be a Sweetheart at any age

From chocolate to family, friendship and romance, in the spirit of Valentine’s Day, residents at Hearthstone by the Bay show us how different forms LOVE can be expressed and shared.

Senior Sisterhood

Celebrating friendship, Hearthstone by the Bay resident, Mamie Ablamowicz leads this group of savvy women in a crafty Valentine’s Day gift bag and card making session.

“It’s a lot of fun,” says Mamie. “We do a lot of laughing. Some of these ladies have never done crafts before, so there is a lot of enthusiasm for it.  It feels very good.”

Timeless Romance

Hearthstone residents getting their groove on with an old time favourite - ballroom dancing lessons led by Jive Nation Toronto

This happy couple, Sandra and Tibor Haluskay, met on Valentine’s day at a ballroom dance in England 48 years ago.

“When I got home that night, I told my friend that this was the woman I was going to marry,” says Tibor.

Icing on the cake

Baking enthusiast Kati Urszenyi shows us how to make a decadent Chocolate Torta, from her book Sweet Decadence, a compilation of century old Hungarian dessert recipes she translated from her husband’s ancestor’s hand written cookbooks.

Kati tells us she arrived at Hearthstone in pieces. “The people around me here helped put me back on my feet,” she says. “Coming here was really the chocolate icing on the cake!”
