The holiday season is upon us and it is a favorite time of year at the home, filled with celebrations. Thanksgiving…preparing for the December holidays…our Life Enrichment staff excel at creating programming and events that bring joy and happiness to our residents and staff.

We celebrated our Veterans with a special gathering to honor and thank them for their service. Homemade donuts, hot chocolate, and more were enjoyed by all, and lots of stories were shared as well!

Holiday crafting is a popular activity. For Thanksgiving, our residents enjoyed painting and assembling colorful turkeys that showed off great personality and flair. Special Holiday Bingo offers double the winnings. Our resident get very excited!

Music filled the air with performances by Jimmy Mazz and the accordian music of John Thorpe. And residents enjoyed baking an assortment of delicious pies which they enjoyed at our monthly birthday party!

“The Balloon Guy” entertained our residents at our Carnival, with colorful balloon sculptures. There were balloon animals, balloon flowers –even balloon hats. Everyone received a unique creation! Games, prizes, ice cream and snacks rounded out the fun event.

Pet Visitation is a favorite activity! Countess Basie, a beautiful collie and volunteer from Bright Spot Therapy Dogs, warmed the hearts of our residents. They eagerly await her bi-weekly visits!
