We had a fun and exciting Nursing Home Week!
Spa Day on Monday was enjoyed by everyone. Residents had professional manicures by the staff of “The Hair Company” in New Richmond. Thanks to Julie Knops (not sure of her married name), for bringing her staff here to help pamper the residents. Rita Mara gave hand massages to several residents, and mini-massages to the staff. Tricia also helped her out with hand massages. It was a very relaxing and refreshing day for everyone.
Holy Cross with Pastor Jonathan and his crew were here on Tuesday morning for services, and in the afternoon, residents and tenants tried their hand at painting. We have Picassos amongst us. We did have some really nice results. I think we’ll have to try this again soon.
CT and the Heuts drew a big crowd, as always, on Tuesday evening. Hands were clappin’, feet a tappin’ and even some singin’ going on both upstairs and down. Great job, guys and gals. Paula Standaert played the piano with them also. She sounded and looked great! We even had Louie Armstrong as guest singer!
Wednesday we enjoyed a special treat, as Patchouli returned to give us a concert in the afternoon. Residents, tenants and guests filled the Grand Oaks lobby area. Everyone really enjoyed them. They play some very unique instruments. Thanks to Pastor Jonathan for hooking us up again this year. Thanks also to the family of Roberta Graese who helped to sponsor them at Glenhaven in memory of Roberta who LOVED TO SING.
Farmer Day on Thursday brought cats, dogs and goats to the building. Apparently the goats got into a head butting contest, which the residents found to be hilarious. The cat snuggled up nicely next to Bill Hoffman for quite some time. We had someone bringing a horse, but they ran into some difficulties, so that will have to be another day.
Casual Friday was celebrated with a staff picnic and a luncheon for our volunteers from the community. I can’t begin to tell each one of you how much you are appreciated all year long. The residents so look forward to the church services, Bingo, visits, music, all the other things that you help with. We couldn’t do it without you! If you were unable to make the banquet, please accept our heartfelt “Thanks”.
