Waldron Nursing Center Residents have been blessed with some wonderful donations made to the Activity Department to help enhance the activity program for residents and special needs for any resident. These donations came from Ed’s Service Center, Mike’s BP Station and Guy Taylor. Also, R&R Auto Repair, Roger Rich, who gave in memory of his mom, Johna Rich. These donations will be an ongoing contribution and our residents will be greatly blessed from these “acts of kindness.” These folks will also be blessed for their thoughtfulness.
Activities this week consisted of Sunday Bible time, an activity with Chris Davis and Paula Davis, lots of evening dominoes with different residents playing either in the dining room area or the Day Room. Other activities included Monday morning reminiscence with Diane Miller, bingo on Monday, Wednesday and Friday afternoon, with our ever faithful volunteer Doyle Wayne calling the numbers, and Pat Morales on Friday afternoon helping residents with their cards as well as the morning craft projects. Lastly, Monday night singing with Temple Baptist group, Tuesday nail painting and trivia with Alex, bluegrass singing and playing on Tuesday evening with Roger Sparks and group. Our residents just love it when it is their turn to come, and a large group always attends as well as friends from the community, who like to come and hear the singing. We always welcome these visitors as they also socialize with the residents that attend.
Lots of Art work is going on at any given time between activities. You can always see Dianne Brennan, Floraine Valentine, Vidya Patel all busy turning out some great art. Lots of the art is posted on the art wall leading into the resident dining room for everyone to enjoy. This along with our photo wall is along the entrance hallway to the Physical Therapy Department. This is where all of the Wednesday morning special activity photos are posted. Thanks to Volunteer Virginia Simpson who always puts these up after the events.
This weeks activity was “August Madness.” Alex outdid himself in getting the residents all dressed up for the photo taking. There was lots of laughter going on as each one received their “get up” for the photo taking. There was certainly some “August Madness” going on with this event and if you have any doubt just come take a look at the wall photos.
Other events included trivia questions with Alex, Red Hat Fun, Thursday night worship with the Mt. Mariah group and puzzle time.
In closing we were all sorry to hear of the passing of our friends and past residents, Joyce Leslie and Robert Frost. These two were certainly loved by all who knew them and our thoughts will be with their families in the sad days ahead.
