Getting Our Sun In!

Thank goodness for sunny days. Staff has been more than happy to help some of our Jones-Harrison residents soak up some much needed Vitamin D!

Together and apart enjoying the sunshine, friends and a few shouted greetings!

Staying Busy While Staying Safe

Our hard working staff are doing wonders keeping up morale with our residents. Here they are working on a puzzle, keeping up our exercising, enjoying others exercising, exercising our mind with “do you know your doctors” quiz, and chats with Chaplain Monica and her divinely glowing tennis shoes.

Judy and Monica chat – check out those glowing tennis shoes on Chaplain Monica!

Having fun watching others exercise!

Brain teasers!

Lots of new puzzles to work thanks to our generous families!

Exercise now comes to the residents!

Spring is the Best Season – In Our Opinion!

We love our sunny days in the Jones-Harrison courtyards. Savannah and Della sat and enjoyed the 55 degree weather! Savannah says they had fun reminiscing about Spring and how it’s the best of all the seasons (in our opinions!)

Della enjoying a fine spring-time day!

Welcome Sunshine and Fresh Air!

Here we are enjoying the courtyard at Jones-Harrison Residence, and doing our best to visit while keeping six-foot distance!

Bik gives us a way from the promenade!

Paula and Margaret take their reading outdoors. Paula did some great laps around the courtyard a bit earlier!

Margie missed Anne swinging in our swing – now its walk time!

Our Assisted Living crew knows the rule – 6 feet apart!

Much Needed Support from Friends and Neighbors

Jones-Harrison neighbors continue to step up to help bring a smile to our residents. Here some young friends donated their wonderful artwork. Savannah from therapeutic recreation shares, “Anne LOVES children (she had 10 of her own!) so she had a lot of fun looking through all their art pieces and it definitely brought her (and others) some sunshine. She couldn’t stop smiling at the mermaid painting and saying “oh, how cute!”. It’s perfect hanging out in our dining room, where Anne and other folks can sit and admire. Thank you again to everyone who has donated to Jones-Harrison these past weeks. We, and our residents, appreciate your continued support.

Our new friends from down the street.

What marvelous art from our talented friends.

Anne couldn’t stop admiring these wonderful gifts.

Birthdays Still Being Celebrated

While so much has changed, one thing hasn’t – we still will celebrate anyone having a birthday. Our best wishes to Delona on her birthday; she enjoyed her balloons and having a piece of delicious birthday cake!

Happy Birthday Delona!
