National Nursing Home Week Celebration

The week of May 8th found the Provincial House Community joining the residents of the Holy Spirit Health Care Center in a myriad of activities involving Sisters and Staff to bring a special flair to the nationally designated week for nursing homes.

Since this week is intended to recognize residents, staff and volunteers, activities at our Putnam facility included:

  • Thanking the volunteers with gift cards or flowers

  • Partners Bingo where when one wins, the partner also wins

  • A chocolate bar taste test

  • A musical fun time featuring Green Valley, a 3 piece Gospel and bluegrass ensemble

  • Pet therapy involving the 3 lovely dogs of long-time volunteers Anita and Anne

  • A spa time program in which residents and Staff participated

  • A gift basket raffle that sent 3 lucky winners home with delights.

While creating a relaxing and fun atmosphere, the week’s activities underscored the team effort that goes in to making the life of our retired and nuursing home residents varied and energizing on a regular basis.  Kudos to all who played a role in the coordination of these special events and especially to those who make everyday living at the Provincial House and Health Care Center fulfilling and blessed.
