Colfax Health and Rehab – 9-18-2013

If you are looking for good news you came to the right place! We have had another good week.

 On Sunday our residents spent the day with friends and family. They enjoyed a tasty dinner of baked ham, mashed potatoes, creamed corn, with a dinner roll. The coconut cream pie and coffee topped off the meal. If any residents would like an alternative menu there are always several to choose from.

On Monday morning the Square (the main activity area) was filled with residents who wanted to start the week with devotions, current events, and a wee bit of exercise. The afternoon activity was a “Show or Tell”. Sue Hill displayed her button collection and gave us an interesting lesson on the history and origin of many buttons.  Our show or tells are an opportunity for anyone who has a hobby, been on a trip, or someone who has a special talent they want to share with us. If you know of anyone who might like to do a show or tell, please contact Penny in activities.

On Tuesday morning residents met with Tom, an Ombudsman Relocation Specialists. He was here to follow up on the move and gather what the residents thought. He helps facilities by sharing the things that make these moves more successful and less stressful. In the afternoon the Bingo Hall was bustling with residents anxious to win a few goodies. Happy Hour followed bingo. The Rex Bounce ball class in the evening was also very well attended.

On Wednesday morning Pastor Conklin from Colfax & Tainter United Methodist Church led the church service. Delores Huber played the piano and Linnea helped residents where needed. Our church services are always special, but are made even more so with the addition of our new altar. Gene Peterson from Sand Creek hand made the beautiful oak altar. His wife Bonnie helped with the finishing touches. We are very blessed by the people in this community. Residents made Dog Bones in the afternoon. River Boat Randy treated the residents with his guitar in the evening.

We played Volley Ball Thursday morning. The afternoon program was music performed by Chuck Kirkwood playing the trumpet, Lenore Berg pianist and Ed Thompson on the tuba. The trio makes old musical favorites come alive!

On Friday morning Glen and Julie led the Gospel Sing with Delores Huber accompanying them on the piano. The afternoon Dime bingo game was sponsored by the Faith Lutheran Running Valley Church ladies. The deserts they served were scrumptious!

On Saturday residents enjoyed Rex Class at 1 p.m. and Hollywood game at 2 p.m. in the afternoon. A special thanks to all the volunteers who come every week to help!

That is just a little of the good news here in the land of Colfax where the men are generous and the women are genuine.
