We Are the Wind

To honor the weather outside, Anne-Marie lead our Interpretive Movement classes today asking residents to move like the wind.  Check out the video! The scarves added a decorative and fun element to the exercise!

Delores and Harriett help Anne-Marie wave in the breeze!

The wind blows low for David and Virginia.

Stretching out feels good.

Breck Students Share Research

Many thanks to Brad Kohl and his senior students from Breck for sharing the results of their research projects with the residents of Jones-Harrison.  All the students worked with non-profits to measure the effectiveness of one of their programs.  We of course had a special interest in Alex B.’s results of the effect of dance on the mood of seniors as she did her research with Jones-Harrison this past year.  Alex’s research posters are up in our lobby behind the Reception Desk and her research report is available upon request.  What an exceptional class and a fantastic group of students.  We know they will all do well in their chosen fields.

Mr. Kohl and Alex talk about the success of the student’s research projects, and especially the dance project at Jones-Harrison.

Students did research on music and mood in seniors.

We Gather Together

Wonderful to see so many family members joining our Jones-Harrison residents for our Sunday worship service.  Thanks to the many volunteers who help bring our residents to and from the service, and, of course, to our wonderful Chaplain Monica for her spiritual guidance and love.  We are happy to provide this service, along with services for our Jewish and Catholic residents.

Beautiful music to share with one another.

 

Pet Show!

More fun for Older Americans Month – the Jones-Harrison Residence Annual Pet Show!  Many thanks to all the employees and staff who shared their canine – and cat – companions with us.  It is so wonderful for our residents who were pet owners to get to share a few hours with these wonderful animals.  Jones-Harrison encourages pet visitors, so please feel free to bring your well-behaved animal by to see us!

Joey visits with the guys!

So happy Gretchen has mellow cats that will come and visit!

Marlys is all smiles for this pretty puppy!
