Spring City Care and Rehabilitation Center is running Camp Signature during the month of July. The kids are making crafts with the elders and enjoying the musical stylings the Jug Band.

Later in the week, Tony Chattin brought his Hit and Miss Engines for the residents to see. Everyone enjoyed looking at them, and our Camp Signature campers went out to see the engines in action.

Spring City Care and Rehab made doughnuts to sell for a fundraiser for the activities program.  Residents helped make and sell and of course, ate some themselves.  And the kids from the camp received the donut holes for snack!!!

“Cruzin’ to Culture Change”

In our 2015 Learning Congress, staff was educated and/or re-educated on the Ten Principles of the Eden Alternative.  The management team made it entertaining and very interactive.

The Ten Principles of The Eden Alternative:

1. The three plagues of loneliness, helplessness, and boredom account for the bulk of suffering among our Elders. 2. An Elder-centered community commits to creating a Human Habitat where life revolves around close and continuing contact with plants, animals, and children. It is these relationships that provide the young and old alike with a pathway to a life worth living. 3. Loving companionship is the antidote to loneliness. Elders deserve easy access to human and animal companionship. 4. An Elder-centered community creates opportunity to give as well as receive care. This is the antidote to helplessness. 5. An Elder-centered community imbues daily life with variety and spontaneity by creating an environment in which unexpected and unpredictable interactions and happenings can take place. This is the antidote to boredom. 6. Meaningless activity corrodes the human spirit. The opportunity to do things that we find meaningful is essential to human health. 7. Medical treatment should be the servant of genuine human caring, never its master. 8. An Elder-centered community honors its Elders by de-emphasizing top-down, bureaucratic authority, seeking instead to place the maximum possible decision-making authority into the hands of the Elders or into the hands of those closest to them. 9. Creating an Elder-centered community is a never-ending process. Human growth must never be separated from human life. 10. Wise leadership is the lifeblood of any struggle against the three plagues. For it, there can be no substitute.

Spring City Care and Rehab recently helped organize a birthday party for a resident whose son is out of town and wanted her to celebrate her birthday.   She had so much fun seeing staff and friends helping her celebrate her big day with some of her favorite foods.
Spring City Care and Rehab honored fathers on Father’s Day with  cake and a big Hershey bar.  The ladies delivered candy to them and enjoyed honoring the fathers on their special day.
