May has been an exciting month so far. We have had various celebrations starting with a Cinco de Mayo party on the 6th that was followed by a National Teachers’ Day party on the 7th. Then, we had a Mother’s Day celebration on Sunday the 12th! This month has already been full of fun and excitement. This week is National Nursing Home Week, and we would love for you to take a look at our calendar that is posted on our Facebook page and come out and join us for any of our various activities.
Last week was Nurses’ Week, Hospital Week, and Teacher Appreciation Week. Henrietta Care Center is grateful for all of our wonderful nurses at HCC as well as our nurses and staff at Clay County Memorial Hospital. We are also very thankful for all of the present teachers as well as our residents who are retired teachers. Teachers, nurses, and hospitals all make our world a better place. Thank you all for everything that you do. We are forever grateful.
Henrietta Care Center had a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend. The Cowboy Mission Outreach Women’s Group hand delivered each female resident a t-shirt with their name on it. We also had a Mother’s Day Shower on the 12th. We decorated our dining room with fresh flowers for our celebration. Thank you to everyone who took the time to stop by HCC and make the residents feel special and loved. We hope all had a great Mother’s Day as well. God bless each and every one of you.
May 12 marked the beginning of National Nursing Home Week. The theme this year is Team Care: Everyone Pitches In. We are celebrating by having different special activities each day. The 13th, we had a balloon release, and we will have a Resident Appreciation Celebration on the 14th. Dan Webb will be here Thursday evening to provide musical entertainment, and Friday we will have a cookout celebration at noon. We strongly encourage friends and family and other community members to join us for any of our activities.
Since the weather is getting warmer, we plan on spending as much time as possible outdoors during the month of May and throughout the summer.
We are always grateful for our weekly volunteers. Our lives would not be the same without you.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of Alene Wood during their time of loss and mourning. She was a wonderful lady who will be greatly missed. We are praying that God will comfort you and watch over you during this time.
Have a wonderful week.
