Nursing Home News--January 2016

This is the January 2016 newsletter of Friends Across the Ages Nursing Home Volunteer Network

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

 

We would like to wish a Happy New Year to all our volunteers and supporters! We are excited to jump into another year of “bridging generations with ageless friendship” as we say in our motto. This month marks the 17th birthday of Friends Across the Ages. Here’s to a wonderful 18th year!


ANNUAL APPEAL THANK YOU

 

We are so grateful to all who have responded so generously to our Annual Appeal which was sent out last month. Supporters like you are what make it possible for us to continue to do what we do—thank you so much!

JANUARY SPECIAL EVENTS AND ACTIVITIES

 

Each month, in addition to groups that meet weekly for regular volunteering/visitation, Friends Across the Ages sponsors a few special events and activities at various nursing homes.  These events require no ongoing commitment, though we do ask you to let us know ahead of time if you plan to attend any of these events so that we can be on the lookout for you.  If you would like more information about our weekly visitation groups and becoming a regular Friends Across the Ages volunteer, please let us know that as well.  Here are our special events for January:

 

Wednesday, January 6th,  10:30 – 11:30 AM – Casino Time at Parklands – A monthly event at Parklands Nursing and Rehab  Come help play poker with the residents, or just help cheer them on! No real money is involved; residents play for the honor of having our Championship Trophy for the month. 

 

Wednesday, January 13th, 10:30 – 11:30 AM – “Storytellers’ Society” at Parklands –These monthly group gatherings are a wonderful way to share, reminisce, and truly get to know the residents at Parklands Nursing and Rehab.

 

Thursday, January 28th, 2:30-3:30 PM -- Birthday celebration -- Help us wish a happy birthday to all residents of Parklands Nursing and Rehab with birthdays in January. Meet us in the dining room where we will have singing and cake. Volunteers are needed to help gather the residents together, serve the cake, sing, clean up, etc.  Do you play an instrument or have some other talent?  We are always looking for new entertainment for the party – let us know!
