February 2018
This month we celebrate love! According to Statistics Brain, 180 million people exchange Valentine's cards each year and 193 million roses are produced!

Though we may not pass out roses and Valentine's cards we want to make sure that we show our love daily to our residents. We enjoy finding their passions and making sure there are outings, programming or projects to support these interests. We like to show our love in more personal ways like singing a favorite songs of a resident or dancing down the hallway if it will bring a smile to the face of a resident. We enjoy playing games and laughing with the residents and ensuring that each day that they are in our care they sense the love that we have for them.
