Welcome to our monthly newsletter. It’s just another way for all of us to stay in touch during the COVID-19 crisis. We’ll share inspiring and fun stories about how our residents and associates are staying engaged and staying safe – all the while navigating “the new normal.” We hope you enjoy the latest news from Heritage Greens. And if you have any story ideas or news you’d like to share, let us know. We’re all in this together!
Social distancing has changed the way we conduct our wellness programs at Heritage Green, and technology is our new best friend. Our Wellness team is hard at work recording exercise programs, trivia, even short stories! Each day, Wellness team members videotape select programs, which are then broadcast on our HGTV (Heritage Greens TV) Channel 1-1 in their apartments. Our residents can follow along with exercise class, match wits during word games and Name That Tune, not to mention supporting one another during prayer and meditation. Pastor Huff has taped his weekly Sunday service. No one misses Vivian and Pat playing beautiful tunes on the piano! Our own Gina, Mark and Deana sing their hearts out. Freddie and the Mood Swings are still performing live in their rooms as well. While we are only able to gather in small, socially distanced groups, we can still gather as a community – staying engaged with one another and staying healthy. And it feels good to see the familiar faces of our Wellness team leading engaging programs that focus on the six dimensions of wellness: vocational, intellectual, physical, emotional, social and spiritual.
Recently, we were able to highlight the incredible job that our Wellness team does on Facebook Live. Stop by our Facebook page to see the video.
I scream, you scream, we ALL scream for ICE CREAM!!!
Our ice cream truck regularly goes door to door to bring our residents a much-needed treat. As you can see, it brings a smile to their faces.
PATIO DINING AT HERITAGE GREENS
We missed our residents so much that we innovated a way to dine with them again. On June 9th, we set up individual tables on the patio to keep a social distance. Chef Josh grilled food to order. We served mouth-watering Burgers, BBQ Chicken, Grilled Corn, Cole Slaw, Baked Beans, Corn Bread, Ambrosia Salad, and Banana Pudding straight from the grill.
