Looking forward to spring
Well, what a different winter we are having this year; bitter cold and snow. I’m looking forward to spring, are you?
Here at Trinity Homes we have been doing different activities like bringing in “Gallery on the Go” individual painting for residents. They each get a canvas and paint; the instructor goes step-by-step on painting an item she picked for residents to paint. Flowers, church, animal or scenery. Residents keep their painting for their enjoyment hanging in their rooms.
Other activities we have done and residents love it, “Resident Auction.” We bring in auctioneer Milt Korslien. The residents get $50-dollar play money and can bid on items up to that amount. We get donated items like stuffed animals, candy, blankets, jewelry, soda and many other items. Music is always a great activity providing a dance or just for listening. We do a variety of music from rock ‘n’ roll, country, gospel and old-time bands, to meet the needs of different age groups.
Activities brought to Trinity Homes are requests made by individual residents or at resident council, which meets once a month. This gives us an idea what our residents likes and dislikes are.
Keep wearing that smile.
