“Life’s Stories” was the theme of our National Nursing Home Week. It began Monday with Western Day. There was a “shootin the bandit” competition and serving up a few “saloon drinks”. Tuesday was Farm Day with kid goats and a chicken visiting the elders from our front yard, along with down on the farm homemade biscuits and gravy. 50s Day was Wednesday. There were bagged lunches from McDonalds and root beer floats. Thursday was reminiscent of carnivals with games and freshly-popped popcorn. Friday concluded the week with barbecued chicken on the grill. From favorite TV westerns to growing up on the farm to enjoying summer fairs and carnivals, it was a week to celebrate the stories of the elders’ lives!
