Kentucky Derby (Friday, May 3)
When Meriwether Lewis Clark Jr. (Grandson of the Lewis from the Lewis and Clark expedition) traveled to Europe in 1872, he was inspired to start an annual horse race similar to one in England and France. When he came home to Kentucky, he did just that, and the now famous Kentucky Derby was formed. In celebration this year, our residents will enjoy a Kentucky Derby of their very own. The Derby is a chance for everyone to break out their bow ties and fancy hats. They will enjoy snacks such as cucumber sandwiches and mint julep cupcakes while watching a selection of our employees race on stick horses. The residents will have the chance to bet on which horses will do best, and winners of both the race and the betting will receive prizes.

Travel to Wonderland Tea Party (Tuesday, May 14)
This year’s Nursing Home Week will be a blast with the theme of “Be Our Guest.” Naturally, “Disney” Comes to mind, and we plan to feature a different Disney movie every day. On Guest Services Day, the Residents will have a chance to “Be Our Guest” at an Alice in Wonderland Tea Party. Residents will enjoy a variety of movie-themed snacks, and Staff will be dressed as characters to complete the experience.

The Royal Ball (Thursday, May 16)
This year’s Nursing Home Week peaks with the Beauty and the Beast-themed “Royal Ball.” The residents will enjoy the Red-Carpet Treatment (literally, a red carpet will be involved) at a beautiful party where they will have the best “soup du jour hot hors d’oeuvres” while being entertained by the Beast leading Princess Belle around the dance floor. Staff will be encouraged to dress as their favorite Disney Royalty so the residents will have a chance to be star-struck by the likes of the famous Disney characters such as Cinderella and Ariel, who have already sent in their RSVP to Belle’s Ball.


As we practice proper social distancing protocols in our community, we are proud to feature modified programming to continue providing vibrancy for our residents and employees.
