Butterflies

We enjoyed an inter-active program on butterfly’s in the Care Center.

 

 

Thank you to  Carolyn and Mike Murphy from the Iowa State University Master Gardner Program, for taking the time to come here and share their knowledge of butterflies!

 

Casino Day

Our last day of Nursing Home Week is Casino Day!

We set up a casino in the Care Center, complete with Black Jack and a Slot Machine!

 

Thanks to our Hills Bank volunteers that helped out!

 

 

We ended the afternoon with a yummy “mock-tale”.

Today we are “Living Soulfully”

Living Soulfully is the National theme for Nursing Home Week.  For this day we decided to live a little silly.  So we got some funny props and posed for some pictures!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We also took turns being “Uncle Sam”.

 

 

Farm Day

We had so much fun on Farm Day!

We got the chance to dress up as farmers.

 

In the afternoon, we had a mini-farm in front of our building!

There was Tater Tot the miniature horse

Sports Day!

It is nursing home week!  We celebrated each day with a unique theme.

 

 

Day one is Sports Day.

 

We had a lot of fun with games like Bowling, Ring Toss, and Basketball. 

We also did some “sports” puzzles.

 

Then we pretended to be a soccer player with a fun cut out poster.

Off to the Races!

Move over NASCAR, you have nothing on our Atrium Village Care Center Residents!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We had our own race day; complete with spark plugs and spare tires!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jim was the fastest driver – congratulations Jim!
