Everyone was a winner at the Cupcake Walk held at Azura Memory Care of Stoughton. And really, how couldn’t you be? Fun, laughter, movement, competition and of course…CUPCAKES!
So, just what is a Cupcake Walk? This game is essentially musical chairs but with cupcakes instead. After breakfast, the residents and staff baked cupcakes and decorated them…so pretty. Then, let the game begin! We played some lively music and the residents began to walk around the circle of chairs. When the music stopped, so did the residents. They then sat in the nearest chair…except that there was one less chair than people.
The person that didn’t find a chair was eliminated from the competition. But it is a far stretch to say that person was the loser because the person left standing got to pick and eat a decorated cupcake!
Hmm… so what is the motivation to find a chair? Sounds like a game no one wants to win.
"We want to thank you for the loving special care you took of our mother, Diane. It was truly mom's home and you all became part of our family. Everything was home for her....from the beautiful rooms, large sunny windows all around, good food made with love, fun and personal activities from people who really loved our mom. We would highly recommend your facility to anyone. The staff from the director, to the doctor, to the nurse, to the caregivers and the maintenance man were all extremely helpful, caring, loving and professional. There are not enough words to say how much we appreciate all of you. Your exceptional care, kindness, and love were beyond anything we could have imagined. You were part of our family, and we will miss you." - Gail Sommers and Deborah Guse
