Colfax Health and Rehab News – 1-21-2015

Extra, Extra, Read all about it! Spring will be here on March 20th! That is only 59 days!

Here at Colfax Health and Rehab we are enjoying the winter months. Every day we are able to have our meals skillfully prepared and served to us by cheerful staff. Residents sleep until they wake up out of their cozy beds. When they arrive in the dining rooms they are greeted by cheerful staff who prepares their breakfast, just the way they want it. After breakfast some residents go for a stroll. The Square is always available for more coffee and socializing. At 10 a.m. there is an activity in the Square.

On Mondays and Tuesdays we have devotions, current events and exercise. Dinner is prepared in the main kitchen next to the Square. Residents can enjoy the aroma of fresh baked bread, cookies.

On Wednesday mornings we have a church service. This week we had to cancel it because we were taking precautions because of the flu. We no longer have any restrictions on visitors; however if anyone has a cold or illness we would like them to postpone their visit until they are well. We were planning on having a special Lutefisk meal on Wednesday but that was postponed until January 28th.

Thursday morning we played volleyball in the Square. Everyone was extremely happy to be able to get out and about. In the afternoon we had a movie and popcorn in the Square. The movie “Frozen” was well received. Many residents had heard their grandchildren talk about that movie and they now know the story behind “Do you want to build a snowman?” The root beer and hot butter popcorn made the afternoon very pleasant.

On Friday morning we had Gospel sing and Rosary. Loretta Logslett led Rosary in the East Family Dining Room. Glen, Julie and Delores Huber led Gospel Sing in the Square. On Friday afternoon the Square became a Bingo Hall. The tables were lined with anxious players. Tuesday Bingo had been canceled so residents were eager to play their favorite game!

On Saturday residents played Hollywood in afternoon. That is about it for this week here in the land of Colfax where we are looking forward to Saturday, January 28th. That’s our Annual Wine Tasting Party from 5 to 7:30. Wine, Food, and fun. Please come and join us! See you there!
