Fun with the U of U students

For one semester our residents get to have fun with these four students from the University of Utah! They’ve played some really fun games, here are some pictures from playing horse shoes, Jeopardy, skee ball and a scavenger hunt where the winners got chocolate!

 

Pinewood Derby 2019

Carrington Court was lucky enough to host a pinewood derby for these boy scouts! Everyone came out for the derby, each resident took turns picking a car to race. All the cars looked great and it was so fun to watch. Then at the end we all enjoyed a tasty ice cream treat! 

 

Valentine’s Day Party!

Every year the Valentine’s Day party is a fan favorite! From the delicious food, and everyone’s favorite chocolate fountain to spending the evening with family, it is always a lot of fun! We are so grateful to our amazing kitchen staff for making such a wonderful meal and of course all of our other staff and management for making the night so fun. But most of all we are grateful for the family and friends that we love so much, they made the night perfect!

Here are some fun pictures from the night:

 

 

Cookie Time

We were so excited the other day because Rhea’s daughter came with cookies and frosting! And all of the residents got to decorate their own Valentine’s Day cookie! Cookies are a favorite treat, but it’s even better getting to eat your own creation. Everyone had a great time frosting and getting creative with the sprinkles and of course eating them!

 

We Love BINGO!

The fact that our Assisted Living residents love to play BINGO is not a surprise to many. Though, the other day we decided to mix things up a little! Everyone joined in the fun and wore Valentine’s Day heart head bands! Here are some pictures from the game.

Off to the Races!

This week we went off to the horse race here at Carrington Court! The field had six horses named by the residents, there was:

  1. Don’t Give Up
  2. Gone With the Wind
  3. Lucky
  4. Go Boy
  5. Old Rex and
  6. Pineapple

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!

Be Thankful

Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough. – Oprah Winfrey

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 🙂

Red Butte Garden

There is no better way to begin the autumn season than a visit to the Red Butte Garden. Our assisted living crew recently visited the gardens in order to get one last look at the summer plant life before autumn begins to turn the leaves. This is one of our favorite trips as we love seeing the beauty that nature has to offer and the staff at the gardens are amazing and give such a wonderful tour. See below the wonders of nature we were treated to.

School Supply Run

Here at Carrington Court we are very lucky to have so many of our community members come to visit with us and we want to make sure we are giving back to our community. With this in mind our assisted living crew recently visited Jackling Elementary School to donate some much needed school supplies. We had so much fun being able to visit and meet some of the staff whose classrooms the supplies would be going to.

Sunset art

Breanne, the art teacher from Indian Hills Elementary has once again let us enjoy her talents as an artist and a teacher. She helped our assisted living crew create water colors of sunsets to enjoy as decoration in our rooms. We always enjoys our time with Breanne as she lets us use our imaginations and create a painting that is as realistic or abstract as we want it to be. Thank you again for spending time with us and letting us enjoy the process of creating art!
