The CNA ‘s June Celebration BBQ outside on the Patio. Yes, that’s some delicious corn on the cob with butter!

Recently, an outdoor lunch took place in the Gates Manor garden area to honor and celebrate the dedicated care of our Certified Nursing Assistants.  Noree, the Director of Nursing, and members of the Nursing Department coordinated the event.  Alex was on hand to go throughout the building to personally invite all the CNAs to the lunch.  Maintenance staff cooked the hot dogs and hamburgers and everyone enjoyed the meal which featured an abundance of tasty items.  Alex coordinated the music and soon had people on their feet and dancing to a medley of lively tunes.  Noree distributed gifts to the CNAs.  This event was organized not only to thank and affirm our CNAs, but also to recognize their skill in providing the hands on care of our residents twenty four hours a day of every day of the year.  So, huge Thank You to all of our CNAs!

Music is an integral part of the daily lives of our residents.  The downstairs activity room features a CD player, and sound system used to play vinyl records. A variety of music is selected by activity staff members to enhance various activities featured on the monthly   Activity Calendar.  Songs from Broadway shows are always popular, along with songs of singers whose music our residents listened to over the years of their lives.  Activity staff also use an IPad so that residents can enjoy music throughout the building.  In addition, the Activity Department has a collection of DVDs which afford a colorful and soothing ambience to the audio music.  This music is, of course, enjoyed not only by our residents, but also by the staff who are caring for them.
