Brain games are an important part of activities for any age group. One of our newer residents, Lynn T., has brought a love of sudoku and has been sharing it with other residents to ensure their brains stay active.
One of our AL residents, Marilyn, is the queen of puzzles. It is always amazing how fast she can put one together. Marilyn often helps other residents work on their puzzles when they get stuck on a particularly hard part. However, that doesn’t mean that Marilyn won’t accept a bit of help herself. One of our local scout troops came to visit and asked if they could work on a puzzle with her. By the looks of the pictures they had a wonderful time and completed quite a bit of the puzzle together.
Sometimes it’s nice just to take a moment to be silly together. Norma and Zach did just that on one of our recent AL outings.
Our wonderful AL activities director, Diane, is always coming up with new and exciting ways to help engage our residents and ensure they are getting plenty of exercise and peer interaction. Our assisted living crew, residents and employees alike, are lucky to have her imagination at work every day and cannot thank her enough for all she does. Below is one of the fun games she has come up with.
Here at CC we love taking time to create our own decorations for each season. With the lack of snow this winter our assisted living crew made snowflake trees to help encourage the snow to begin. See below the dazzling results.
Crafts are a big hit, especially with our memory care residents. They love making fun things and getting involved. This winter we have made all sorts of snowmen, out of every material possible!
Here are some pictures of our snowmen:
With one project we even had some help from some little visitors, who made it even more fun!
Every year around Christmas we stay in our pajamas all day long! Relaxing all day in PJ’s is always a fun thing. Even some of our CNA’s joined in with the fun!
Last month our residents from Memory Care had a great time making these festive holly berry necklaces! They were great for Christmas and everyone joined in the fun!
