St. Patty’s party planned

By Ashley Crownover

We have an eventful month planned at Henrietta Care Center. Monday, March 18, we are having a St. Patrick’s Day party at 2 p.m. As always, you are more than welcome to join us. The residents and staff look forward to celebrating with you.

HCC residents and staff are eager to see our garden grow. The weather is warming up, and we are very thankful for the recent rain. We will spend the next few months planting and harvesting various vegetables. This is always an exciting time for the residents. It is such a joy to watch seeds that we plant come to life and grow into beautiful vegetables. We cannot wait to watch our garden progress. Anyone who enjoys being outside and would like to participate in our gardening endeavors is more than welcome to join us.

If you want a detailed calendar listing the other activities we have planned, you can find it on our Facebook page. If you do not have Facebook or want a printed copy, you can stop by, and we will gladly give you a copy of our activity calendar.

Did you know that we have a Country Store in our facility every other Wednesday? This is a fun activity to get the residents involved and give everyone a chance to do a little shopping of their own. The store has a wide variety of items just like you would purchase at an old general store. The residents can also ask for particular items that they would like to purchase at the store, and we will make sure the requested items are available for purchase. All items in the store are purchased with Bingo Bucks which are earned during our very popular Bingo games. The residents play Bingo and have the Country Store on alternating Wednesdays. They also play Bingo every Tuesday and Friday. This gives the residents extra chances to make Bingo Bucks to spend on whatever items they wish. It works out great and is a great element and popular activity at Henrietta Care Center. We take pride in our resident-involvement and the independence. HCC is truly a wonderful place to live and work.

Thank you to everyone who joined us for our potluck lunch on Friday, March 8. The food was delicious, and the residents, staff, and visitors really enjoyed themselves. We hope to see you again at our potluck meal in April.

Last but not least, we have an important announcement to make. In the upcoming months, you will notice that Henrietta Care Center’s name will change to Grace Care Center of Henrietta. We will be the same great place with the same staff, residents, and owners. We will just simply have a change of name. Our company’s philosophy is titled The Grace Way, and this change will help our facility’s name go along with our views. Take note that nothing other than the name will change. We are excited about making this transformation to have more uniformity with our sister facilities and to have a name that goes along with our values and mission statement. Stay tuned for more information.

Thank you for reading, and have a wonderful week.
