Family Easter Party

Here at Carrington Court we had a very “Hoppy” Easter! We were joined by family, grand children, and the Easter Bunny! It’s always fun to watch the kids run around for the Easter egg hunt and win prizes! The residents enjoyed being with family, having a treat and getting their pictures taken with the Easter Bunny! Thanks to all who came!

Easter Egg Hunt

The Easter bunny was kind enough to visit Carrington Court a week early this year so he could hide eggs all around CC’s building for our resident’s families to come find. The bunny hid over 1,600 eggs for us and hid a special 20 golden eggs that let some lucky kids win prizes. It was an absolute joy to see everyone’s families come and take part in this special day. While it only took a few minutes to find all of the eggs the memories that were made will last a lifetime. See below how much fun our assisted living crew and their families had at our Easter celebration.

St. Patrick’s Day

Our assisted living crew is always up to dressing up for the holidays and St. Patrick’s Day was no different. Our residents and staff went all out wearing green for the day. See below how we all pinch proofed ourselves. Our wonderful U students also showed us how to play “Juice Pong” in honor of what St. Patrick’s Day is famous for in the U.S. Molly and Carolyn really rocked this game.

Rinceoiri Don Spraoi

This Irish dance group’s name translates to “Dancing for fun” and did we ever have fun watching them perform for us just before St. Patrick’s Day. Seeing the traditional dancing and listening to the music really put us in the mood to find those who would not wear green for a quick pinch on the 17th (just kidding…mostly). The Rinceoiri Don Spraoi dancers were so fun to interact with. We would like to give another thank you for them coming to visit our assisted living crew.

The Cathedral of the Madeline

Our memory care residents had a unique opportunity the other week to go and tour the Cathedral of the Madeline! It has been an iconic building here in Salt Lake City, and it was so fun to see and learn about the history and architecture. The beautiful stained glass windows designed in Germany were a favorite of everyone!

St. Patrick’s Day fun!

It was finally St. Patrick’s Day! We have been doing fun things leading up to this day all last week! Everyone dressed up in some kind of green so no one got pinched! We made shamrock pins and painted a rainbow with a pot of gold. it was great to be Irish for a day!

Irish Soda Bread

Baking is so much fun, and brings back a lot of fond memories for our residents! This last week we made some delicious Irish soda bread! It’s always really fun to make and even more so to eat!

Wearing of the Green

St. Patrick’s Day is such a fun holiday to celebrate! And our Memory Care residents have had a lot going on! We had a visit from Debra Bowers and her parents who sang and danced to some fun Irish songs. We are so grateful they come and share their love of music with us! And we had a visit from a Leprechaun!!

Presenting Act III

Our assisted living crew was recently visited by the Salt Lake Assistance League Act III Choir. We had a lot of fun dancing and singing with them. They even had an accordion to jam with. See below our residents getting their boogie on with this fabulous group.
