Lucille Thompson and Mary Dean Troxell had been awaiting a shopping trip to Wal-Mart for a few weeks . Mary Dean kept wondering each day  if she was taking enough money with her and Lucille was hurrying up until the day of. The morning of their trip, each of these ladies were up bright and early, ate their breakfasts hurriedly, and could not wait until the R-tech bus would arrive so we could get on the road. Mary Dean kept asking me, “When will the bus be here?” as she would check her watch. About five minutes after she would ask once, she would ask again.

Upon arriving at Wal-Mart, each of these ladies, and other elders, went about scurrying to find the best deals. Some found clothes, some found snacks and drinks, while others found crafting items. When it was time to leave, Lucille stated, “I wish I could stay all day, I could shop ’til I dropped!”

Everyone is excited for their next trip!

Several elders got a chance to cruise Albany, in style, on a Suzuki Boulevard motorcycle. Shawn Shelley, housekeeping and laundry supervisor, shared his awesome motorcycle with the elders so many could relive “old times” or even ride for the first time.  

Ms. Doris Neal stated, “I’m glad I got another chance to ride again like I used to do when I was younger. This brings back memories for me. I used to like to ride motorcycles a lot!”

 Pictured are Elders Doris Neal, Elder Jimmy Sidwell,  Elder Walena Dalton, Elder Maggie Warinner, and Elder Wendell Shelton.

We greatly appreciate the love, compassion, and care our elders receive everyday from our CNA team. Our elders ask for you by name and miss you when you are not here. Where would Nursing Homes be without the tireless, important work of the certified nursing assistants? Sometimes, the job is tough and thankless, but the CNA is the backbone that makes everyone else’s job a little easier.
