Henrietta Care Center had a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend. The Cowboy Mission Outreach Women’s Group came out on Friday, May 11 to start off our wonderful weekend of celebrating. They brought roses, cards from the youth group, and bookmarks from the children’s group. Each resident was hand-delivered these Mother’s Day gifts. They also provided an arrangement of roses for the Henrietta Care Center staff that are displayed at the nurses’ station. They are beautiful. Next, we had our Mother’s Day Shower on the 13th. We decorated our dining room with baby shower decorations. The residents were able to reminisce about when they first became mothers. Thanks to our local thrift shop, The Treasure House, for allowing us to borrow baby items such as blankets, cloths, booties, and shoes to use for decorations. We also want to thank Grace Temple Baptist for bringing book marks for our mothers. Thank you to everyone who came out to and made the residents feel special and loved. We hope all had a great day as well. God bless each and every one of the mothers in Henrietta and the surrounding areas.
Our journey for National Nursing Home Week was a great success. Thank you everyone who helped us make this week of recognition special. The residents enjoyed their week full of fun activities. Monday was our journey to Mars. The tables were decorated in black alien-covered tablecloths, and the room was filled with green balloons with alien eyes. We watched ET and played alien games and had contests after lunch. Tuesday was our journey to the farm. We enjoyed country western music played by Dan Webb. Wednesday, our journey to the casino was very fun. We played blackjack and dice, and we also had happy hour. We journeyed to Paris on Thursday. We had a perfume contest, played loved stories on the big screen TV, and we had a candlelight dinner with cheese and wine. Everyone had a very enjoyable Thursday evening. Friday, we journeyed to the circus. We had animals available for petting, a potluck lunch with food you would find at the circus and games in the afternoon. Thank you so much to everyone who made this week such a success.
We had our Staff Appreciation Banquet on the 16th. The Vice President of our company, Andrew Hall, came to Henrietta and prepared mouth-watering brisket and chicken as our main dishes. We also had potato salad, coleslaw, bread, watermelon and brownies. The food was all delicious. Following our meal, the executive director of Henrietta Care Center, Debbie Brewer, presented employee awards. Congratulations to our Employee of the Year, Paula Koetter, and our Care Provider of the Year, Cassie Sherrill.
Have a safe and happy Memorial Day Weekend!
