The past couple of Saturdays our assisted living crew has been focused on using all five senses for activities in the morning. One of our residents, Jeane L. has written a beautiful poem for this theme.
Why do I enjoy Life?
What makes it seem so gay?
Perhaps it’s the adventures that great me everyday.
I can SEE the sun that shines in the sky above.
I FEEL the wind rush through the pines caressing them with love.
I SMELL the blushing flowers as they in silence stand.
I HEAR the graceful babbling stream roam across the sand.
These are some of the adventures that I TASTE day by day.
These are some adventures created in God’s way.
We would like to give a huge thank you to Jeane for this beautiful poem!
Our memory care residents were so excited to see all of these fun dancers!! The dance group, Local Motion came and presented some of their younger classes spring showcase and we loved it! There were cute costumes, great dancers and lot’s of fun! We are so grateful they came and shared their talent with us!
Our memory care residents recently got to spend a morning with the opera! It was such a wonderful experience.
Utah Symphony/Utah Opera Performers, Melanie Ashkar, Jesus Vicente Murillo, and Robert Bosworth in collaboration with the Alzheimer’s Association were gracious enough to come to our facility and share the gift of music and their angelic voices with our amazing residents.
We are so grateful that they came and shared that with us!
We here at Carrington are always tickled pink whenever we have people come perform for us. Recently our assisted living crew was visited once again by the fabulous Deci-Bells. It is always a huge treat for us whenever this group comes to perform for us. We love getting to see the fun costumes, the funky hats, and the absolutely gorgeous music these women make. Here is their most recent visit with an animal theme.
So many rubber ducks
We love that we get to interact with these wonderful women
Greeting our AL crew
Time for a magic show
I think she escaped from the aquarium
They miss the ocean
Rubber duck hats
It’s Elsa’s cape
Should we tell her?…
Our assisted living crew always loves to be able to interact with children and watch them enjoys their passions. We were recently visited by the Local Motions Dance Studio for them to present their spring showcase. This group had dancers from two years of age to high school. We loved how passionate the dancers were and cannot wait to see them again.

We had a bittersweet goodbye recently for our assisted living crew. The current group of U of U students recently had their last day meeting with us before their graduation. We have been very blessed to have had such a wonderful group of students this past twelve weeks. The time we spent with Skyler, Sammi, Kendall, and Steve seemed to fly by. This group came up with some fantastic games and activities for our AL crew. We are sad to see them leave but wish them the best with dental school, psychical therapy school, and the work force. Good luck and we’ll miss all your fun balloon ideas!
