A Picnic Plus Ice Cream Equals a Wonderful Day

What a fun day at Jones-Harrison.  First up, picnic time!  First up were some of the residents from the memory care neighborhoods, followed by the Assisted Living residents.  To cap it all off, our good friends from Interim Healthcare were scooping up ice cream for residents and staff on the promenade.  A delicious day with near-perfect weather.  Enjoy the photos!

The men find a quiet spot in the courtyard to enjoy the picnic lunch.

Many thanks to our friends at Interim Healthcare for the ice cream!

Poetry and Travel Adventures

During this week’s poetry classes at Jones-Harrison, instructor Rachel Moritz helped us create a poem on travel – planes, trains and automobiles!  We got in the mood by trying our hand at piloting a few paper airplanes.

Prakesh travels from India on her paper airplane flight!

Rose traveled every day on trains to her work in Manhattan.

Walking With a Buddy from Jones-Harrison

What a perfect summer day for staff to take accompany residents of Jones-Harrison’s Assisted Living, Long Term Care and Memory Care on a walk to Cedar Lake.  Enjoy the photos!

We appreciated the scenery in front of and behind us!

The Poetry of Summer

Another fun day with Rachel Moritz creating poetry.  In memory care, we talked about the color of things – what color flower would you be?  And with our long term care and assisted living residents, we created a poem about what we would include in our “Kingdom of Summer.”

Blue stones made us think of water, sky and other colors made us think of food!

If you listened very well, you really could hear the ocean!

Horsin’ Around

Residents of Jones-Harrison’s Long Term Memory Care enjoy getting up close and personal with the beautiful horses at Bunker Park Stable.  Thanks to the staff at Bunker Park for making us feel so comfortable and welcome!  Enjoy the photos!

All cowpokes on hand to meet the horses!

It was wonderful to see the big smiles on everyone’s face as they met the horses.

Our Life Resume in Poetry

Today we tried something a little different in our poetry class at Jones-Harrison.  We began to write a life resume, starting with memories of where we were born and our childhoods.  So many fun things to learn about each other!  Thanks, Rachel, for stretching our minds as well as our mouths!

Rachel warms up the group for reciting poetry with a mighty roar!

We find out lots about our neighbors, and that is fun!

Gone Fishin!

Residents of Jones-Harrison’s Long Term Care had a marvelous time fishing out at Lake Riley this week.  They beat the storms and reeled in some beauties!

The ladies had a good day at Lake Riley!
