Happy New Year! I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday festivities! I know we had a great time here at the Gardens. We enjoyed making holiday wreaths and ornaments. Decorating sugar cookies was a huge hit. Some had their cookies eaten before we could decorate them! We enjoyed a lot of holiday entertainment and had carolers sing around the building. Santa even visited us at our family holiday party. We had the chance to spread holiday joy thanks to wonderful volunteers for donating gifts.
During the month of January, we celebrate national Activity Professionals week the 20th-26th. Activities are an important part of our residents’ daily routine. Some popular activities you may see on our monthly activity calendar include; bingo, happy hour, spa day, bus trips, games, crafts, music, and church services. Thank you to all the residents that come out and participate in activities. Don’t be afraid to get out and try something new if you haven’t been to an activity in a while, I’d love for all to join in! As activity professionals our goal is to provide activities that are not only fun but also provide social interactions, intellectual stimulation, physical health and enhance quality of life. Please acknowledge our activity professionals for their hard work and dedication to the activity department.
