Rummikub anyone? Every Thursday

This is the fascinating story of the Rummikub game, whose conception is obscured in the past, over 70 years ago . The game started as a brilliant idea that had occurred to Mr. Hertzano – to substitute the traditional cards, used in a popular card game, with colorful tiles and new game play. That idea – through faith and a passionate dream of tiles rattling all over – finally materialized. Accompanied with a vision just as bright and as grand as the initial idea, it became an overnight hit.
Some Rummikub Facts:
1. Rummikub is also known as the Original Rummikub
2. To win Rummikub one must use up all of his/her tiles by putting out runs or groups, or adding on to other player’s sets.
3. Rummikub contains 106 tiles numbered from 1 to 13, that are in four different colors that are generally red, black, yellow or orange and blue, and two jokers.
4. Rummikub has been a popular game for over 50 years and has won six ‘game of the year’ awards during that time.
5. Holland has won the most World Rummikub Championships, winning the championships three times.
6. There are 18 editions of Rummikub put out by Lemada Light Industries, the manufacturers of Rummikub.
Residents at Cottonwood Village have games every Thursday at 2 pm so come on in and join them anytime.

Celebration Of Life

"Celebrating life" means acknowledging the life of a person who has passed. A loved one can be acknowledged and celebrated bringing healing to the living. Hospice of the Pines affirms life for all the loved ones that have passed on. Honoring a life does not mean that we should only focus on sad emotions. Matthew 5:4 tells us, “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.” As a human being, we must acknowledge grief, everyone processes grief differently. Hospice of the Pines facilitated this event.

Exercise Benefits Seniors

Exercise and physical activity benefit many areas of your life and:
1. Help maintain and improve your physical strength and fitness.
2. Help improve your ability to do the things you want to do.
3. Help improve your balance.
4. Help manage and prevent diseases like diabetes, heart disease, breast and colon cancer, and osteoporosis.
5. Help reduce feelings of depression, may improve mood and overall well-being, and may improve or maintain some aspects of cognitive function, such as your ability to shift
quickly between tasks, plan an activity, and ignore irrelevant information.

The number one intervention for preventing falls in older adults, and thus living a healthier and independent life, is regular exercise that targets at least two of the following: strength, balance, flexibility, and endurance.
Exercise is offered daily and often twice daily at Cottonwood Village
