It’s May!  It’s time for the lilacs to bloom, mushrooms to be hunted and corn to be planted. May looks to be a busy month with Nurses Week May 6th - May 12th and then National Nursing Home Week May 12th - May 18th.  We are planning to incorporate some fun activities into Nursing Home Week with games, food and music. This year's theme is “Living Soulfully”. We are making posters of what makes our souls happy. We will be playing some games including a pie toss, purchase a pie for a $1 and ask one of our residents to toss it into the face of employee of your choice. Proceeds will go to the activity department.  We are planning a Fiesta, Chef Jason and our Dietary Department will be making some delicious Mexican foods. We will be planting flowers and making tie dye t-shirts to wear on Friday.

May 12th is Mother’s Day, if you visit your Mother, have a muffin and coffee with her. Muffin’s and coffee will be available in the front lobby courtesy of the dietary department.

We are planning a couple of bus rides this month now that the weather is warmer.

Join us anytime for activities! Fun, laughter and friendships abound at Edgewood Convalescent Home!!!
