We hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Amy Wettrau of Country Meadows in Lancaster, PA sent us some great photos of their annual Turkey Trot! Here’s what she wrote:
“Our whole campus came together to involve all levels of care – Independent, Personal Care, and the Dementia residents. We briefly went outside for a walk around the flag pole, then came inside and walked the hallways. Each resident received a racing number to wear, and a feather at the beginning of the race to hold. Everyone got to cross the finish line and have a team of coworkers cheer for them. They then stuck their feather in a cute little Styrofoam turkey we made, and received a certificate of participation. We didn’t raise money for a charity or do donations, but we all had a lot of fun exercising together. Enjoy the pictures!”
Great job, Country Meadows! We will be having a Christmas photo contest soon, so start thinking about what your residents can do to have fun, be active, and celebrate the season.
