Memory Care Unit at the Magnolia at Frewsburg Rest Home March Look Back
What an interesting month of March it has been! Although for many of us, especially our residents, staff, and family members in the community, our lives have been extremely altered from this pandemic. One of the most important things for us to accomplish at The Magnolia is to keep the good times rolling, and we certainly have done just that in our Memory Care Unit!
Throughout the month of March, we’ve been plenty busy between attending activities and visiting the Wellness Center. At the beginning of the month we joined our friends next door at The Magnolia for many of their activities, some of our favorites including ladder ball, bean bag toss, bucket ball and lawn darts.
One of our favorite activities that we enjoy is when we get together and socialize, and this month gave us many opportunities to do so! We tried something new this month and had a great time taking center stage with our karaoke machine during our monthly tea party. Whether we were the one’s singing or a spectator in the audience tapping our feet along, we definitely had a great time and enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. Of course, we couldn’t forget about our friends with March birthdays! Our friends next door during their baking group and made us vanilla cupcakes with homemade cream cheese frosting with a cookie crumble garnish, and boy were they DELICIOUS!
We celebrated Saint Patrick’s Day, as required, with a mug of (non alcoholic) beer at our new bar that our Maintenance Supervisor Mark had made by hand! Additionally, one of the things we look forward to each spring here at The Magnolia is our Senior Prom. It was a huge hit! We had so much fun dancing the night away with our friends, and getting a bit carried away with our chocolate fondue fountain and the marshmallows and pretzels that went along with it!
As March descends to a close, we think of our friends and families right now that are not able to see us, and are very eager to be able to reunite with them again. Please keep up to date with the latest news regarding Covid-19, and see what we’re up to at The Magnolia, by viewing our Facebook Page – The Magnolia and Frewsburg. Happy Easter and stay safe!
