May River Montessori Students Singing For Residents: Dec 9 & 14
As a special holiday treat, students from May River Montessori will be putting on a holiday recital for our residents this month, Dec 9 and 14. We love to host intergenerational programming and partner with our local organizations, providing festive fun for all involved!
Thanksgiving Family and Friends Dinner
The week of Thanksgiving, we hosted a special dinner for our resident’s families and friends. We safely welcomed many visitors and served a delicious holiday meal before the Thanksgiving weekend began. Our entire community had an amazing time! We’ll be hosting a similar event the week before Christmas; stay tuned for further details!
We had a lovely Veterans Day honoring our residents who have served our country. We took a trip to Sun City’s Veterans Day program. HomeInstead and Curtis O’Quinn with Crescent Hospice also held a very special ceremony for our veterans. Jennifer Chandler with HomeInstead even made a patriotic cake!
Happy Holidays! 🎄 🕎
The holiday season is time to celebrate and be around those you love. However, we know that can come with unique challenges for caregivers. Refer to our holiday caregiver resources for some helpful tips:
