Pleased to Host Southwest Senior Housing Meeting

Marsha Berry from Training to Serve presents to the Southwest Senior Housing group.

 

Jones-Harrison Residence was pleased to host our colleagues from other senior living communities at the latest Southwest Senior Housing meeting.  We thank Marsha Berry from Training to Serve for presenting tips for making our communities more welcoming to the LGBT population.

Breakfast to get our brains and bodies cooking!

 

Kristina Waln, center, Assisted Living Leasing and Community Relations Coordinator, and Chantal Nason, Assistant Administator right, welcome our guests from Southwest Senior Housing.

A Sweet, Swingin’ Senior Prom

The residents of Jones-Harrison were thrilled to welcome the 4th graders of Breck School as their handsome dates for this year’s Senior Prom.  The group had a great time getting to know each other while swingin’ and swaying to the sweet sounds of Kate Lynch and her magnificent fellows.  And what better way to end the party by dancing up a storm to the Makarena!

Anne shows the boys a move or two!

Carolyn gets a few dance tips on how to groove to Kate Lynch and Her Magnificent Fellows!

The staff couldn’t help joining in on a lively version of the Makarena!

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Hope everyone is having a great Cinco de Mayo! The residents of Jones-Harrison certainly enjoyed our party, mariachi band, margaritas and all!

Always a big crowd to celebrate Cinco de Mayo!

Our little Nellie was moved to tears to hear the music she so loves!

Everyone was clapping and singing along to our mariachi band!

Art That Blooms

Many thanks to all the wonderful volunteers who distribute flowers after the Minneapolis Institute of Arts wonderful exhibit, Art in Bloom, has ended. A group of Jones-Harrison Assisted Living residents got to see the exhibit and then these wonderful flowers arrived to remind us of the wonderful day. However, I’m not sure the men appreciated the flowers as much as the ladies!

Under the Sea

Our friend, Manta Ray, came by to give us a smile!

Checking out all the cool creatures!

What a great day for the long term care residents of Jones-Harrison to have lunch and check out the Sea Life Aquarium at the Mall of America.  Even the Manta Ray gave the group a big smile! Enjoy the photos!

Eva appreciates not having to be in scuba gear to feel like you are swimming with the fish!

A World of Thanks to Jones-Harrison Volunteers

We celebrated the many and varied volunteers who help make Jones-Harrison Residence a true home for our residents and transitional care patients. By request of this great group, we did less talking at everyone and instead let them get to know each other better through an interview game – and we learned a little bit more about this very special group.  We are always looking to add to this great group.  If you have even an hour or two to spend each month visiting with a resident – and that includes therapy animals! –  going on an outing, helping with an activity or sharing a special interest of yours, we would love to have you contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Marnie, at 612-925-7286.
