COVID-19 Update: Ensuring that residents are cared for in a safe and healthy environment is our top priority and at this time. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have recommended a variety of steps we are implementing to help reduce the potential for the virus to enter our facility. Therefore, no visitors are allowed to the Home until further notice.
In the meantime, our Activities Staff is working hard to provide residents with entertainment, exercise, spiritual programming, and opportunities to socialize with social distancing in mind. Many programs are being conducted one-on-one with a staff member or virtually through some very creative and dedicated individuals.
Normally, we hold live musical entertainment in our main seating area weekly through both volunteer group sing-a-longs and performers. Examples of other activities include: weekly exercise groups, featuring adapted sports such as bowling, basketball, ball toss and more; stimulation activities using word games, cross word puzzles, trivia, crafts and reminiscing; monthly pet therapy and musicians are also scheduled and offered as one-on-one visits for residents unable to attend group programs.
Typical socialization activities for residents and families occur at Thursday Happy Hours, Sunday Afternoon Socials. Another resident favorite is our Summer Patio Barbecues, provided by our Dietary Department.
Religious services of different denominations are uaually held in our chapel, located on the first floor of our building.
