Nursing Home News- November 2009


Please be sure to mark your calendars for our annual holiday party. It will be held on Sunday, December 6th from 2:00-4:00 p.m. at North Florida Rehab and Specialty Care. We will be giving thanks to our WONDERFUL volunteers and bringing some holiday cheer to the residents at North Florida. More specific details about the event will be sent out soon, but please planning on joining us for food, drinks and fun!


The Board of Friends Across the Ages would like to introduce our three new board members. Huy Pham(Volunteer at Signature), Kim Mitchell (Volunteer at Signature) and Judy Wibbelsman (Volunteer at Park Meadows) bring with them many hours of volunteering experience and compassion for the residents they visit. We are thrilled to have their input when making decisions about the future of Friends Across the Ages. Welcome to the group!



Friday, November 13th, 10:00 a.m., Reaction Reading at Park Meadows-- Lead by board member Vi Asmuth, Ph.D., this event will be held at Park Meadows.  Residents will be invited to participate in a program that consists of choral reading of poetry.  The group reacts with active participation, knowledge, opinions, feelings, and imagination.  Vi did a study monitoring the results of this small group program in three nursing homes in the Fort Myers/Cape Coral area. One facility liked the program so much that she continued leading groups there for five years.  If you find this concept interesting, you are welcome to come out to participate.


Thursday, November 19th, 2:30 PM -- Birthday Celebration -- Help us wish a happy birthday to all residents of Parklands Nursing and Rehab with birthdays in November. 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! 


Date TBA-- Steve’s Casino at Parklands – A monthly event at Parklands Nursing and Rehab – By popular demand, Steve visits Parklands to deal blackjack for the residents (who play for prizes).  He can always use some extra dealers, so let us know if you’d like to come join the fun!


Date TBA – “Storytellers Society” at Parklands- These group gatherings are a wonderful way to share, reminisce and truly get to know the residents at Parklands Nursing and Rehab.
