KairosAlive! Dance & Movement Class with our friends from Breck School

We were thrilled to have our Senior Class students from the Breck School make their farewell appearance with us by participating in our KairosAlive! dance and movement class.  We had fun rolling, strolling, doing our exotic scarf dances and generally just enjoying each other’s company!  Enjoy our photos and videos from this special day!

We gathered together to do a bit of chair dancing!

Operation Shoebox Launches at Jones-Harrison

On May 20th, 2017, Jones-Harrison long-term care residents will celebrate National Armed Forces day by partnering with  “Operation Shoebox” to create care packages to send to our military personnel overseas.  To make this project a success, we are asking family and staff for donations of items that we can included in our care packages.  Suggested items include: instant coffee, personal hygiene items, prepaid phone cards, stationary, jerky, and more; however, any donations including food (dry goods, snacks), toiletries, entertainment (music, games, books), etc. will be accepted.  A comprehensive list of suggested donations is attached and can be found at the Jones-Harrison reception desk.  Donations can be brought to Jones-Harrison through noon on May 20th.  Thank you in advance for helping our troops and helping Jones-Harrison residence play a part in this important effort.

Any questions can be directed to Savannah in the Therapeutic Recreation Department at 612-225-1119 or sbrogden@jones-harrison.org

Jones-Harrison is proud to support those serving abroad.

Thank You to Our Volunteers!

Many thanks to the men and women who give of their time and talents at Jones-Harrison.  Without volunteers, many of the activities we are able to offer would not be possible.  We hope you will be an inspiration to others.

The Fun Continues to Grow with KairosAlive! Dance Residency

Class number 2 with our friends from KairosAlive! was just as much fun as class number 1, and saw our numbers grow as word spreads about all the great singing and dancing that goes on.  Can’t wait until our next session when the Breck School students join in on the fun!

There are so many ways to enjoy a dance with our friends from KairosAlive!

The Easter Bunny Called, and We Answered!

Time was running out so the Easter Bunny put in an emergency call to the residents at Jones-Harrison who got right down to business and colored some wonderful and whimsical eggs for Mr. Bunny to deliver to the children on Sunday.  Our best wishes from our family to yours for a blessed Easter and Passover.

Everyone had a favor color to dip their egg in...coincidentally matching the bright color shirts we have on!

National Beer Day

The ladies of Rue de France at Jones-Harrison help kick off National Beer Day.  The Cullen-Harrison act was signed on April 7 1933 allowing for the legal sale of low-alcohol beer, several months before Prohibition was repealed. I think our ladies agreed with President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s comment upon signing the bill: “Now seems like a good time for a beer!”
