During the past several weeks of the COVID-19 pandemic, our Veterans Home has been under many restrictions; this means no visitors, including families and volunteers, can enter the facility outside of vital medical services. During these challenging times, the Assistance League has donated the necessary funds to provide additional activities for the Veterans in our Home. While practicing social distancing, here are some of the activities department has been able to offer: our Voices for Vets sing 3 times a week on each community and in the Dining Hall; patio time with music, happy hour, kite flying and enjoying the sun; music plays every hour on the hour for our Staff to dance to in hopes to keep morale up for both Veterans and Staff; small group activities in each community such as bingo and poker; devotions with music in the chapel twice a week; watching sports and movies on the big screens in the chapel with popcorn and other goodies; Easter Cantata on Good Friday; Easter worship with Lloyd and even a visit from the Easter Bunny!
We do want to note that the Assistance League has been grateful for your support in the past and has recently purchased another new wheelchair accessible van for our Veteran residents. This will help with transportation to doctor visits and the many outings we sponsor.
