Article by Chrisitne Lees LSW/ADC

Waldron Nursing Center is looking quiet festive for St. Patrick’s Day with all of the decorating done by Alex Carter, Activity Assistant, and Terri Hattabaugh, Housekeeping/Laundry Supervisor. Terri always decorates the hallway in front of the Laundry Department for all the holidays and Alex always gets all other areas decorated and looking great. We have lots of shamrock luck throughout the building as well as lots of St. Patty’s Day activities scheduled. Denea Eslich, Activity Assistant, also assisted residents in making lots of crafts to celebrate the holiday. Pat Morales, Volunteer also helped with making the crafts and they look really great displayed on the Resident Art Wall leading into the dining room.

Other activities scheduled was Sunday afternoon singing with Rick Byce, Monday Reminisce with Diane Miller, Bingo on Monday, Wednesday and Friday afternoon with Denea & Alex calling the numbers. We are really in great need of more volunteers to come and help out at the games. Sunday services with Winfield Baptist group, Monday night singing with Temple Baptist group, nail painting on Tuesday and Saturday mornings, this is something that our ladies really look forward to each week. Round Table, Worship service with David Hines, lots of art work,, the residents also enjoy doing the daily word search puzzles that are passed out each morning, Ball practice, Red hat meeting, Table games and Trivia games. Along with all of the individual interest that our residents have of  watching television, reading the paper back books, magazines and news papers. Many go to the book shelf located in the resident dining area to pick out their books. That is why we are so appreciative of the paper back books and  magazines that everyone donates us.

Waldron Nursing Center Nurse aids join in with a bit of “Madness” during the morning activity of “March Madness”

 The Special Wednesday morning activity of March Madness was a big hit, with everyone choosing their “madness” out fit for the photo pose-up session. Thanks to Denea and Alex for helping with this event. Also to our Nurse Aids who made  our Resident’s Day by taking time for a quick photo pose-up during the activity. The Leprechaun Hunt was also successful on Saturday afternoon with Alex. He had hidden six of the little characters and residents had to find one  in order to get a prize. Finding the Leprechauns  and getting  a prize was  Paul Davis,  Joyce Leslie, Janis Hull, Dianne Brennan, Norma Jo Williams   and Hattie Thomas.

We are still happy to report that the “flu bug” has not been back however we are still asking everyone to keep using  the hand sanitizer and to wear a mask if you have a cough.

“Thanks” to all who have donated items to us this week for the resident activities.

In closing  our  deepest sympathy goes out to the family of Tommy Williams. He will be missed by all who have known him. Our thoughts will be with the family in the many sad days ahead.

Also we would like to remind our family members that if your loved one wants to vote in the upcoming election I need help in making sure they are registered to vote. We always encourage our Alert residents to exercise their voting rights.
