Green Meadow Haven Celebrates National Nursing Home Week

By Molly Seales

On May 15-19, residents and employees of Green Meadow Haven celebrated National Nursing Home Week with fun themed days and activities. Monday’s dress theme was spring attire. Residents were treated to vanilla wafers and lemonade under the pavilion, where they got to also enjoy the beautiful sunny weather. Tuesday’s dress theme was decade’s day. Treats for the day were throw-back refreshments-Dunk-A-Roo cookies and Hi C drink boxes. Everyone also enjoyed regular Tuesday afternoon bingo.

Wednesday was pajama day, and the residents were treated to freshly baked chocolate chip cookies. They also had their usual Wednesday noon church service with Bro. Olan McLaren from Davis Springs Southern Methodist Church and Caleb Willis from Fairview Baptist Church. Thursday was wacky and tacky day. This seemed to be the resident’s favorite day! They enjoyed an afternoon of “The Price is Right.” Unlike real tv, “hostesses” Katie, Destiny, and Mary Tom made sure everyone was a winner!

The week concluded with Patriotic Day on Friday. The employees and residents enjoyed boiled crawfish, but another treat was in store for them after lunch. Pey-Pey’s Ice Cream Truck came by, and everyone was treated to an ice-cream snack. Thanks to Wesley Chapel Church for making this happen. The day ended with Mrs. Sharon Adkins’s usual Friday afternoon Bible study.

The activities department would like to say a big thank you to everyone who participated and made it a fabulous week for the residents.
