We loved and lost 12 residents this year.
Through song, prayer and sharing loving memories, we remember them in a special way today.
We early Thanksgiving celebration and served turkey with all the trimmings to our Care Center residents and their families.
We had a lot of food, and a lot of fun!
Here are a few pictures from the night.
Thank you, Terry Kruse, for speaking today at our Veterans Day program.
And thank you to all our vets out there, we appreciate your service. God bless you!
There was a lot of noise coming out of our atrium for a little while, but it was well worth it!
There was some settling of our sidewalks over the years, so we tore out our old cement and poured new.
They used a concrete pump to reach over the apartments to pour the cement in the atrium. It was quite a sight!
The Crew worked hard, into the evenings and over a weekend.
We now have perfectly level sidewalks to walk on while enjoying our pretty flowers in the atrium!
Boo! Happy Halloween everybody! Our Care Center staff looked spooktacular today!!
We had many tricksters and treaters stop by from Hills School in the afternoon and then town kids in the evening.
Our nurse Julie and her daughter Rachel stopped by with their two bunnies, Rex and Harry.
Our care center residents loved holding and petting them!
Thanks, Julie & Rachel, for bringing them by!
Look at our beautiful pumpkin display in front of our building!
Thanks to Charlotte Thomann for bringing and arranging the pumpkins. And thanks also to Darlene Schott for bringing some festive pumpkins for the front of our building as well.
Stop by to check them out!
We had a picnic to celebrate Old Farmer’s Day. Old Farmer’s Day is a national day that is celebrated as a throwback to sustainable farming and farming practices of the old days. The month of October was chosen for this holiday since, traditionally during this time, the harvest would be mostly complete and farmers could take a break from their labors to enjoy this celebration.
For our picnic, we grilled hamburgers outside, despite the cold. We served them with baked beans, macaroni salad, potato chips, cookies and ice tea and lemonade. Care Center families joined us as well. It was a fun (and yummy) way to celebrate farming the old fashioned way.
It is National Health Care Food Service Week, so we want to say a big THANK YOU to our dietary staff.
They do a great job cooking, baking and serving our residents. Plus they always step up for special events, such as ragbrai.
Thanks again for all you do!
Thanks to Dietary Staff not pictured: Anita, Alli, Abby, Emily, Jared & Josh.
