The Belfountain Community Organization would like to extend warm wishes and a welcome home to resident Ian MacCallum. Ian has had a long and arduous road to recovery, a journey he met with courage and determination having spent 197 days in hospital. He is delighted to be back home and has begun resuming his daily routines. It is heartening to see him enjoying morning coffee with friends and neighbours once again.
