It has been a great camp here at Spring City Care & Rehab – the kids are happy, and the elders are enjoying all the activities with them. One resident told her therapist, ‘I don’t want to go with you, I am having too much fun right here!’

She did eventually go with him though, but not until she finished her project with the kids…

 

During National Nursing Home Week, we visited Head Start classroom, read them a book and helped them make a bunny rabbit puppet on a stick. Then this past Saturday, we put together baskets for Veterans, and some residents delivered them on Armed Forces Day. One resident said, ‘How did they know I was a veteran? This is so nice of them.’

Today we had our 1st Annual Taste of Spring City. Staff made a lot of delicious plates from our own cookbook for the event.

There were chicken dishes, spinach dishes, casseroles, ham, catfish, meatballs, rolls, several different desserts.  YUM YUM!  Plates were only $5.  Our Taste of Spring City was announced on the radio, newspapers, social media, flyers, word of mouth.  For our 1st Taste of Spring City, we had a good turnout.  Everyone loved the different kinds of food.

Spring City Care & Rehab residents even helped prepare some of the dishes, and of course they got to enjoy eating the food. The event served as a fundraiser for the facility’s Christmas ‘slush fund,’ which goes to buy residents and staff gifts. More than 50 community members came to eat, and a total of $265 was raised.

The elders of Spring City Care & Rehab made a video to the Katy Perry’s song, “Roar.”  The elders enjoyed making the video and watching the outcome.

This year was different from the ordinary Valentine’s Day. A couple from our staff renewed their vows on Valentine’s Day, and the elders were their guests. Afterwards, we had a combined wedding reception and Valentine party. Our king and queen were crowned, and there was good food for everyone. We also had our annual Valentine sale of balloons, cups, candy and stuffed animals. It was a busy but fun day.

Spring City Care & Rehab residents, their families and facility staff brought in coats, gloves, clothes, scarves, hats during January that were taken to the homeless shelter. One resident, Barbara, brought things to me that she longer could wear as soon as she heard we were taking items up for the shelter. We all feel for those who have to survive out in the cold, especially during these very cold winters like we are having now.

On Thursday night, we hosted the first of our quarterly family meal nights, and it was a success. I told the group I jinxed the weather by naming the dinner the ‘Snowflake Dinner.’ They laughed, and I told them it would have a spring theme next time. We had singing to go along with the meal, and were told by many how good it was. One elder said, ‘My sister-in-law’s are in for the next one already.’

On Monday, we went bowling and then had lunch at a local restaurant that our residents love. We also got to take three of our junior volunteers because school was out. They enjoyed being with the elders and helping them bowl.

Here we are getting ready to visit our local Head Start child care program, and share a book or two with them. Ms. DeCook, who is a retired school teacher, loves to go with us and read to them. She always gives them a challenge when we leave for the next visit. Next time we go, they are to have a song with motions for us to see.
