The Adventures of Buddy Bear

 

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!

 

A Visit from The Duke on Father’s Day

 

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!

The Easter Bunny Hopped in to Help!

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.

 

 

 

 

Bookmobile!!

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.

 

 

Meet Oliver

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!

 

 

Halloween Fun

Halloween was a lot of fun at Atrium Village this year!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We got a little goofy with our homemade masks. 

 

Our staff and both our care center and apartment residents enjoyed them.

Our CNA, Bailei, brought in her dog, who was dressed up as a spider for Halloween.

The town kids came in the evening for candy.

Hope you had a Happy Halloween!
