Today we celebrate farmers!
We all brought our straw hats to wear.
Terry, our Director of Nursing, wore her overalls!
Our little friends from Kinderfarm Preschool visited in the afternoon to help plant sunflower seeds with the care center residents.
We finished the day with more friends – of the furry and feathered variety! Farm animals such as pigs, a horse, dogs, goats and a chicken and rabbit were here.

We also had a couple tractors, since it wouldn’t be Farm Day without them!
Watch this video to see how the two little pigs arrived! They rode over two miles down the highway like this!
Thanks to everyone who brought in animals and tractors!
This week is National Nursing Home week! So each day this week will have a special theme with many activities and lots of food!
Monday is All-American Sports Day.
We all wore our favorite team attire and the Care Center Residents and the employees enjoyed a tailgate party.
We had chips, salsa, dip, crackers, cheese, bologna, little smokies and our residents favorite drink – root beer!
We also had fun pretending to be a soccer goalie!
We celebrated mothers today with a Mothers Day Tea.
We had cheesecake bites, mini eclairs, fruit cups, a variety of sugar free cookies and punch.
Thanks to our cook Anita, who is also a talented floral designer. She made beautiful corsages for all our mothers!
We have restored our in ground lighting in the atrium! It had not worked for several years. Now, all the lights are on at night, creating a beautiful night-time setting!
You will notice an update to our facility when you come in the door. We installed new carpet in our lobby and the hallway to the care center. It was a little messy for a couple days, but it was worth it. We think it looks great!
Tom and Theresa Anderson performed music from the 1950’s, 1960’s and 1970’s for us today. They played a variety of music, including folk, country, easy listening, Broadway hits and instrumentals, as well as gospel.
Here is a sample of what we enjoyed:
We had a very Irish day today, with our St. Patrick’s Day entertainment and party!
We welcomed the Musical Comedy Group, as they joined us for lunch today, and then entertained us with their St. Patty’s Day program.
Later in the afternoon, our care center residents had a party with cookies, punch and Irish music.
Happy Valentines Day!
We had a party for our Care Center and Apartment residents today and celebrated with lots of delicious treats!
Check out the yummy spread for our Valentines Day party!
Who doesn’t love a fountain of chocolate? Look at our pretty beverage fountain too!
We had such a variety of food to dip in our chocolate: pretzels, graham crackers, pineapple, strawberries, angel food cake, peanut butter balls, rice crispy bars, and bananas.
Amanda, our Dietary Supervisor, helped out by cutting up fruit to dip
Jane, Terry and Amanda had fun serving up the goodies dipped in chocolate
We hope your Valentines day was as wonderful as ours!
