We painted nails, decorated pumpkins, filled bags for the residents, hosted our Trick or Treaters, dressed up in costumes and had a great party with lots of wonderful goodies provided by dietary. A great time was truly had by all!
Sax Man Slim was his usual entertaining self for our Mardi Gras party. The residents love his big band music and also enjoyed our non-alcoholic adult beverages. The staff got in the mood by dressing up for the occasion and beads and balloons decorated the area. We also have a weekly bowling activity that gets a regular group of residents together for some friendly competition. It’s nice to see the residents cheering each other on to get a strike or spare because if they do then they win a small prize. We have a very busy March coming up. Please be sure to check out activities calendar.

It may be cold outside but our neighbors continue to have winter fun! To celebrate Valentine’s Day we had a gourmet chocolate tasting with tea followed by heart sand art. The residents loved it! Then to celebrate Mardi Gras we made Beignets and served them warm with coffee. This was so much fun and we had a great turn out. And yes, we did manage to get some confectioners sugar all over ourselves but that was all part of the process and the laughter shared. Best cooking class yet! While rolling and cutting the dough the history of the French Quarter in New Orleans was shared as well as the history of Caf© Le Monde.
