Mother’s Day Celebration
Our Mother’s Day Celebration on Friday, May 10th, was everything we hoped it would be! The atmosphere was friendly, warm and lively. The celebration included mothers, daughters, sons, great grandchildren and others….together, we celebrated “Mothers”.
There was live entertainment by Mr. and Mrs. Vazquet, who were fabulous and put on an amazing performance. Their musicality was reciprocated with much positive feedback from the audience!
Refreshments, finger food and special snacks were available for everyone and each resident received a fresh cut carnation flower and a “mother’s day wish”. Overall, an enjoyable, memorable afternoon!
Story-Telling with Adel on Saturday Afternoons
Story telling is enjoyed by all age cohorts and cultures. It is the conveying of events in words, images and improvisation…..bringing the story alive.
On Saturday, Feb. 9th, residents had the opportunity to attend and participate in story-telling with Adel on 2N and 2S. The next time Adel comes to our home, she will be visiting 1N and 1S. This will be the ongoing rotation of her monthly visits. All residents are of course welcome to attend any of her visits!
Adel is well-known in the Long Term Care and Retirement sectors for her interactive story-telling through images and discourse.
Hope to see you there with Adel!
