National Nursing Home Week

Bluegrass celebrated National Nursing Home Week with “Wacky Tacky Tourist Week”. We traveled around the world, with two destinations intermingled each day: France/Caribbean, Greece/Egypt, American West/Hawaii, Africa/England, and China/Australia. Everyone was given a “Party Pass”, sunglasses, hats, and leis and accumulated assorted souvenirs and other accessories throughout the week. Fun, smiles and laughter were prevalant week long with activities and special events such as a Tour de France wheelchair race, Caribbean Cruise Party, Play Doh with Plato, Tut’s Treasure jewelry making, Hula Hoop contest, Cowboy Luau, Tea Party, Outback Snack-Attack, and much more! Staff members and residents dressed in their tackiest tourist clothing, or dressed to the theme of the day, and prizes were given for the best costumes. It was an awesome week, with many other extra special features (seen below).  Thanks goes out to all of our staff members, families and visitors for really getting into the spirit of this celebration for the enjoyment of our residents, and to Subway for providing some of the contest prizes for the week!
