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!
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:
This week we went off to the horse race here at Carrington Court! The field had six horses named by the residents, there was:
- Don’t Give Up
- Gone With the Wind
- Go Boy
- Old Rex and
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 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 🙂

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.
