Last day with the U students

As a tribute to how much fun our assisted living crew has had with the U students we decided to take some “prom” pics. See below the fun results.

And again, a huge thank you for all you have done! Good luck in your next adventures to Ali, Cameron, Hunter, and Max!!!

Thanksgiving cards

Our assisted living crew would like to extend a thank you to Verlene and Beverly for coming in and making cards with us. Verlene and Beverly helped us hand make each card using card stock, stamps, ribbon, scrapbook paper, and colored pencils. See below the beautiful results.

Thankfulness

As we are heading into November it is important to start to recall what we are thankful for. Our assisted living crew created thankful pumpkins to place on their doors as a reminder to never forget the good things in our lives.

Halloween Activity

Once a month or so our assisted living crew gets to spend time with some of the students from Jordan Ridge Elementary. This month the students spent time working on drawings and making candle holders with our residents. The students teamed up with a resident to glue tissue paper onto candle holders to give the look of stained glass when the candle is lit. The pictures below show how much fun we had that day!

U of U students

Several times per year we at Carrington Court Assisted Living are lucky enough to host some of the senior U of U students. These students spend 12 Saturdays with us as part of a project in which they help our residents exercise their bodies and minds. This group of students has been one of the best we have had to date. All of the residents love them as well as our staff. Every Saturday has seen a new, unique game or activity and it has been a joy to watch the residents’ faces light up for each one they have been introduced to. See below how big our smiles are for the parachute activity. Our current group is getting close to the end of their time with us and while we are sad to see them go we are excited to see what the future holds for them. Cameron, Ali, Hunter, and Max we are truly thankful for all you have done and wish you well as you go on to your Masters and Doctoral work.

Scenic rides in autumn are the best. Our assisted living crew took a drive through Provo Canyon to see all of the beautiful autumn colors.
