Balloon Badminton Time!

Balloon Badminton is one of the resident’s favorite games here at Carrington Court! It’s such a fun and active game, that gets their bodies and minds going! They have such powerful hits and enjoy hitting the balloon around!

Backpacks for the road home!

“How beautiful a day can be when kindness touches it” -George Elliston

Carrington Court’s residents performed a random act of kindness by bringing backpacks to The Road Home for children in need. It was a good way to end the annual National Assisted Living Week!

Fall colors are so beautiful and warm! We are excited to welcome fall this month!

Outing to the State Fair!

045The resident’s had a blast at the State Fair! We appreciate all of the people who volunteer to help so we can go on such fun adventures. They loved seeing the cows, horses, birds, goats, and holding the bunny’s! A baby chicken hatched out of it’s shell! We got to see a Mamma pig with six piglets feeding! Norma was raised on a farm, and she loved getting to see all of the fresh grown fruits and vegetables! It was a fun time to end the summer with!

Game Time

We’ve had a blast lately playing games!

Like…

throwing the beach ball and listening to fun beach music:

and wacking the balloon around with pool noodles.

We always have LOTS OF FUN!

Pioneer Memorial Museum

 

 

 

 

 

For our August field trip we were able to visit the Pioneer Memorial Museum in Salt Lake City and had a great time! The residents enjoyed seeing the many different artifacts and photographs in the museum and we shared some old fashioned honey taffy and lemon candy afterwards. A big thank you to our volunteers!pioneer museum
