During these cold winter months it is easy to get frustrated by the falling flakes, but our INNOVATIVE team has found many ways for our residents to continue to have fun!
Residents have been enticed to venture outside to catch the melting flakes on their tongue and decorate a snowman or two. Indoors residents have had indoor “snowball” fights using snow, cotton balls, crumpled computer paper or newspaper or large marshmallows.
In addition, we have been finding INNOVATIVE ways to craftily create our own snowflakes too. This picture shows the beauty created by our residents with just a few paper towel rolls, paint, hot glue and some glitter. You can find this and other INNOVATIVE ways to engage those with memory loss in fun on our Azura Pinterest page – https://www.pinterest.com/AzuraMemoryCare/.
"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
