During the month of October we will be exploring and celebrating different cultures. October 6th we will celebrate American Indian heritage, October 13th we will celebrate Hawaiian heritage, and on October 20th we will celebrate Irish heritage. At each occasion we will experience food, drink, music, and fun related to the lifestyle of that heritage.
On October 8th and 22nd we will be taking the bus to Wal-Mart for the residents to do some shopping. Maybe get a head start on holiday shopping?
Wear your best costume on October 27th for the Halloween Costume Party. Come dressed to impress because the residents will be the judge of the best costume.
Spiritual practices are very important to majority of the residents, so every Wednesday at 1pm prayer groups meet. This is a time to read a devotional, speak about related experiences, and pray as a group.
Recently the residents have shown an increased interest in games such as Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune. On October 12th the residents will be playing Double Jeopardy.
Reminiscing about the past is a great way to get residents engaged in a conversation and it provides positive stimulation. Every Saturday the residents gather to drink coffee and reminisce.
On October 25th the residents will be painting something “spooky” in preparation for the upcoming Halloween holiday.
There are many impromptu activities that take place during the day. Fun things like nail painting and more physical activities like chair volleyball, bean bag toss, and outdoor walks.
