A big warm hello from the Activity Department.

The holiday season is among us!! We have a busy month with a variety of activities planned and the decorations to be hung. As a holiday tradition at ECH that staff split into their departments and decorate the entrance, dining room, and the resident hallways. This year we will continue the tradition! In years past the families have always been able to come and vote on the decorations. We can now continue this tradition, so come in and vote for best decorated area. We will also be posting the decorated area on our Facebook Page: Edgewood Convalescent Home & Lincolnwood Assisted Living for family and friends to vote. Please be sure to check out our facility either in person or on Facebook and cast your votes. The residents will also be placing their votes for best decorated area.

Who doesn’t love holiday themed activities?! Our activity calendar is full of fun ways to celebrate the holiday season. Some activities include decorating stockings for our doors, making table centerpieces for the dining room, Holiday Bingo, decorating sugar cookies, and making a popsicle gingerbread house.

As in years past the staff and residents will continue with the tradition of having a Christmas meal together on December 21st. This year we will be hosting our resident family soup supper on December 21st at 6pm, weather and Covid-19 permitting.

We have not been able to hold this wonderful tradition for a couple of years due to Covid-19. We are very excited to be able to celebrate with residents and families again. We ask that you RSVP no later than December 18th so we can ensure enough food and space for our guests. This is our gift to you for your continued support. Meal fees will be taken care of for this event. We will be having two choices of soup, a sandwich, veggie trays, and Christmas candy/cookie. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!!
