GHCC News: Nov. 1, 2017
Hello from our home to yours. Last week was busy and eventful. The building is all decorated for Halloween, and the scarecrows throughout the building are spooktacular! We are very much into the Halloween spirit this year.
After our morning exercises Monday morning, we gathered in the dining room to make Edna Hannaford’s famous cinnamon rolls. Thank you, Alex Slowtalker, for preparing the dough for us. We had a wonderful time making the cinnamon rolls and an even more wonderful time eating the warm rolls covered in icing. They were heavenly!
Tuesday, we had our tuning-and-toning exercises and listened to music, and after lunch, our volunteers had Bible study class.
Dominoes kicked off our Wednesday morning, and we wrapped up the afternoon with pumpkin carving. Wednesday was also a special day for all the employees. We recently had our state inspection and were told by our inspectors that our home looked great, inside and out. The kitchen was pristine, the floors shines, we have an odor-free building and friendly and helpful staff and happy and well-care-for residents. We had a very good survey, so in appreciation of everything we do, Sherri Beasley made spaghetti casserole and bread sticks for all three shifts.
Thursday, I did manicures for the ladies. We listened to music and did a craft in the afternoon. We also celebrated Physical Therapy Appreciation Day by serving our therapy department a big pan of homemade chocolate chunk and peanut butter chip brownies.
Friday, we play dominoes and had a fun game of bingo.
Secretary Kayla Wages had a successful surgery, and we are all thankful and wish her a speedy recovery. To celebrate her return to work, we served her hot crescent rolls willed with Nutella.
As you can tell, we ate all week long, but the food was just so delicious we couldn’t help ourselves.
