Outdoor visits were expanded to offer limited after-lunch porch visits on weekdays, in addition to our existing visits on Sundays and Tuesdays. All visits must be scheduled online, with participants wearing masks, safely distanced and refraining from contact.
We continue to enjoy special deliveries from Cape Cod Slush. There is nothing like a cool, sweet treat to break up a hot summer afternoon. Just ask Helen!
The slate of activities has been expanded to include an additional afternoon activity, plus resumption of the pre-dinner Social Time from 4:30 – 5 p.m. Typically, the added word game – Hangman, trivia or Words-in-a-Word – transitions nicely into Social Time.
Our nascent//budding artists continued to develop their painting techniques in the latest Watercolor Class, which was devoted to a colorful autumn landscape. Our Let’s Get Crafty session invited residents to hand-color a sun-catcher, created in the shape of a summery flip-flop. And resident puzzle-solver Eleanor mastered a host of beautiful, intricate puzzles.
The Team Beanbag Challenge continues to spark good-natured rivalry between Barney’s Babes – captained by Dorothy – and the Dynamites squad. While Dorothy’s side still enjoys a significant lead, the Dynamites have been staging a spirited comeback.
Ruth will soon entertain residents with a mix of old standards and classical piano music. Country music fans, meanwhile, can look forward to our upcoming tribute to Hank Williams, Jr. and Patsy Cline.
