UPCOMING EVENTS AT

NURSING HOMES

Friday, January 8th, 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. (This event has already passed but there is another one next month on February 12th, 10:00AM)

 

Thursday, January 14th, 1:30PM - “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.

 

Thursday, January 21st, 1:30PM - Casino Time 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!

 

Thursday, January 28th, 2:30 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!
