This past week our Home was in high spirits, as we celebrated National Nursing Home Week. All week long we celebrated with daily activities and special meals centered on the “Fiesta” theme!
Our Residents truly enjoyed the unique schedule of events ranging from Fiesta photos taken with their loved ones, a “South of the Border” scavenger hunt, a spirited Mariachi band and special Mexican dinner, daily games with our staff, a delicious Fiesta Brunch and entertainment by the El Corazonde Mexican dancers. All during the week our staff members participated in the fun by being a “Secret Amigo” to one or more Residents, giving them flowers, cards, balloons or treats each day. At the end of the week each Resident was surprised as their Secret Amigo was revealed to them. We wrapped up this fun week of festivities with an employee appreciation party, during which the Sisters recognized the staff members for their dedicated service to our Residents.
