October 2017 Activities

Wait a second… Is October dressed up as July for Halloween?

You won’t hear our ladies complaining about more time on the patio! You’ll hear us chanting “one last day”!

There are plenty of activities to look forward this month. In addition to the regular fan favorites, dancing, crosswords, and crafts, we’ve incorporated a new activity called “Let’s Take a Hike” to get us outdoors. Perfect for leaf peeping!

The highlight of our month will of course be the Halloween party. We’ve already begun to hang decorations! Stay updated with pictures by following us on Facebook.

September 2017 Activities Calendar

September is already off to a great start here at Countryside!

This month we will be continuing our “mini outings”, fall style. Picnic? 🍂🍁Leaf peeping? We’ll see what the weather brings! We will also be joined by Pat Hoye for a musical performance on the 15th. The ladies are looking forward to jamming out to some tunes as usual!

Check out what else is going on in this month’s activities calendar.

August 2017 Activities Calendar

This month is shaping up to be our best yet!

Today we’ll be “gettin’ beachy” to celebrate the beginning of August (after facials and manicures, of course).

Then tomorrow… *drumroll please*… is our annual Friends & Family Cookout! Between the awesome entertainment, loved ones and yummy BBQ, it always ends up being the highlight of the year. Can’t wait to see you all here! Be sure to check our Facebook for pictures of the fun.

May 2017 Activities Calendar

May is here, our favorite month of the year!

From May 14 to 20 we come together to celebrate National Nursing Home Week®. This year’s theme is “The Sprit of America”, which embodies how our staff, residents, families, and the community work together to make Countryside the special home that it is. We have activities planned each day, and welcome those who would like to join in our celebrations!

We will be sharing special moments on our Facebook page, so be sure to follow us!

March 2017 Activities

March is a month of change –

A new season, moving the clocks forward, and hopefully more time outdoors. While our activities are planned, we’re armed and ready for spontaneous activities outside!

This month is full of festive activities in the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day. Leading up to our party on the 17th, we can expect Irish-themed weekend games and crafts from Karen, and if we’re lucky, a ballad or two during Thursday singalong. The party doesn’t stop there, because on the 20th Kevin Farley will be paying us a visit for some live Irish tunes!

Check out our full month of activities in the calendar below. And as always, a special shout out to our March birthdays, Betty, Grace,  and Mabel!

February 2017 Activities

February already?!

It’s been a mild winter so far but we are crossing our fingers that Mr. Groundhog has good news tomorrow. The month is short but jam-packed with holidays, new activities, and birthdays planned. We kick off things by rooting on Tom Brady and our Patriots this Sunday – go New England!

Jeff Thomas will be joining us on Valentine’s Day for some festive entertainment. In February we are also debuting a weekly roundtable discussion, inspired by Nora and her eagerness to discuss the world’s most hotly debated topics. As a nod to her curiosity, we named the discussion “Nora wants to know…”, which will now be held Wednesdays at 1:30.

Special shout out to Agnes and Eleanor, our February birthdays! Happy Birthday Ladies!

New year means new activities to look forward to. Kathy always finds fun ways to keep us active during the week, we can’t wait to play Wackoball and Bowlerama!

October Activities Calendar

 

Fall has arrived!

At Countryside, we’re big fans of October. Patriots games, pumpkins, what’s not to love? The month kicks off with the ladies from Pinehill Garden Club, who will be joining us for a coffee social on 10/3. And speaking of gardening, our backyard-grown tomatoes are harvested and ready to be used in one of the ladies’ all-time favorite dishes, Pomodoro Arroz! We can’t wait to learn how the dish is made during one of our Thursday “What’s Cooking” sessions.
