Several family members came to wave “Happy Mother’s Day” to their moms on Sunday. What a crazy time, right? “Happy Mother’s Day” to all our moms who are readers of the Glenhaven News. Hope your day was fun, and you are all staying healthy.
Sunday was also the start of Nursing Home Week. Monday was wear red, white and blue day, and since the theme for Nursing Home Week was “Sharing our Wisdom”, we took pictures with residents with them holding their printed bits of wisdom. They can be found on our website. There was some very good advice given. Thanks to the residents who shared their insight, and for families allowing us to share them with everyone.
We also did some trivia in the afternoon which consisted of famous quotes, and the residents had to figure out who said it, with some added hints, of course. I was amazed that the one they recognized the most was Henry Ford. Apparently the automobile was a big thing in their lives.
Wednesday was hat day, and we had a great variety of hats-gangsters, cows, tacos, you name it! In the afternoon we played doorway Bingo, and in honor of National Apple Pie Day, we had apple slices and ice cream for afternoon snack.
Thursday was blue day, and also care conferences. We had root beer floats for treats.
Western day was on Friday, so we had a barbecue for lunch that day with brats, potato wedges, and watermelon. We had some farm visitors in the morning. Kennedy, one of our CNAs, with the help of Tori, brought her baby goats in to visit with the residents. They were adorable. Some of the residents didn’t want to let them go.
It was also Dorothy Mitch’s 95th Birthday on Friday, and she had a HUGE basket full of cards, which were opened and read to her. She was overwhelmed. Lemon poppy seed birthday cake, made by Sue Riba, followed the opening of cards. It was a nice time even with the corona pest. Birthday pictures are also on our website.
The week continued with dress in purple day on Saturday, which was National Wear Purple for Peace Day.
The weather this week sounds much more promising for some quality time outside. We needed the rain, and boy did we get it! Emerald had over 4 inches.
Our thanks to all the staff who took part in the festivities. Every little bit helps to raise the residents’ spirits!
