It’s getting so close to Spring!
We are planting some flower seeds so we can enjoy some pretty flowers in the near future!
We also gave our plants that are not doing so well a little TLC!
We have our seedlings and plants under an ultraviolet plant light to help them grow.
It’s Deer season, so we bought our tags, grabbed our guns and went hunting. We found a nice timber with some deer trails and set up a deer camera to capture the activity in the area. Guess what? We caught a couple on tape! Look here:
We set up our stands and waited for the deer to come through. Several came through and our sharp shooters got ’em!
We managed to get three!!
We decided to go camping this weekend! So we set up our tent and started a camp fire. But we were in for a surprise, because as we settled down for s’mores and ghost stories, looked who sneaked into our tent!
Our brave employee,
Holly, caught the intruder!
It was a cute little bear named Buddy! Buddy Bear was very sweet and Buddy and Holly quickly became friends. Since Buddy Bear already had a protective shield on, Holly showed Buddy Bear around Atrium Village and introduced Buddy to some of the residents.
Buddy Bear met our Director of Nursing, Betty, with a friendly elbow bump.
Buddy then visited the office.
Then Buddy Bear went back to our campsite and hung out with the staff and roasted some marshmallows.
Oh no Buddy Bear, don’t touch the fire!
Silly Buddy Bear!
It’s Father’s Day and John Wayne stopped over to wish all of our father’s a happy day!
He visited with staff and all of the resident’s.
He was nice enough to help deliver root beer floats, served in cowboy boots, to all of the resident’s.
Thanks, Duke, for making it a fun day for all!

Easter was pretty quiet this year as we continue to take all necessary precautions to keep everyone safe.
We were lucky enough though, to have the Easter Bunny stop by (shhh..don’t tell anyone that it was our Activities Director, Paula). We made sure she wore her bunny issued PPE!
The Easter Bunny was nice enough to help hand out lunch trays!
Then the Easter Bunny visited with many of our residents.
We are lucky to have the Bookmobile coming to Atrium Village!
The Iowa City Public Library Bookmobile will be stopping here the second Friday of every month.
Two librarians are on board, available to assist with your library card, checking in & returning books, and suggesting good books to read.
Our staff, residents and community members really enjoyed the first visit.
The Bookmobile is open to the public, so be sure to stop by!
Upcoming visits will be March 13th, April 10th and May 8th.
Hi, my name is Oliver!
I come every week to with my owner, Dr. Eberly. He is the Atrium Village Medical Director.
I love the hugs I get from the employees and residents at Atrium Village!
It’s hard work being an assistant to the Medical Director, but I love it! See you next week!
