Trip to see Moses

Phoenix Home Care, our in house home health provider, is great to treat our residents to all sorts of fun things. This year, they sponsored a fun trip to see one of Branson's best shows, Moses at the Sight & Sound Theatre! On July 18th, residents left via charter bus and enjoyed the theatre's fantastic retelling of this beloved biblical story. We had a blast and can't thank Phoenix enough for their wonderful generosity!

Bunny Washcloth Craft with Phoenix

Phoenix Home Care comes up with some of the cutest crafts! Residents really enjoyed this one in particular: the bunny, made from a simple washcloth! There was an egg placed in the middle for the body or belly (which could be filled with candy or even replaced with a yummy Cadbury egg). Several residents made multiple ones to either keep or give away as gifts. We had a blast!
Thanks to Phoenix for another fun craft. :)

St. Patrick's Day Mischief by the Staff!

Our fun-loving staff thought we'd put on a show for residents with a friendly competition for St. Patrick's Day.
Kitchen staff, our Maintenance Director and Front Desk Receptionist split into two teams, and competed to see which team would make the best "orange beard"! One person from each team had shaving cream (in the likeness of a beard) applied to their face, while the other team member tossed Cheetos at the shaving cream to create the coveted "orange beard". The residents got their laughter in for the day and the staff sure did have fun entertaining them!
Congrats to the team on the left: Alicia and Kaitlyn, for winning the prize!!
