This week we went off to the horse race here at Carrington Court! The field had six horses named by the residents, there was:
- Don’t Give Up
- Gone With the Wind
- Go Boy
- Old Rex and
Charlotte named horse #3, Lucky and he won! Before we started, Glen, Lynn and Charlotte all picked Lucky to win, and he did! They each get to hold the perpetual winning trophy in their room for a couple of days to celebrate the win!
What a fun game, congratulations Lucky and our winners!
We had the opportunity to host family and friends here at Carrington for our annual Christmas party. So many people showed up to our Memory Care to spend some time with loved ones, listen to holiday music preformed live, and enjoy a delicious Christmas dinner! We even had a very special guest come along to take pictures with our residents and ask them what they wanted for Christmas. Our residents had so much fun, and the night was filled with carols and sleigh bells and Christmas cheer all around. We had so much fun hosting this special get together.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from all of us at Carrington Court!

It is so important to take a little time each day to be thankful for the wonders, joys, and love we have in our lives. Our assisted living crew recently participated in a craft to create a thankfulness plate to display in their rooms to give a reminder to take time each day to reflect on the amazing things and people we have in our lives. See the fabulous pieces below.
A little silliness is important too 🙂
