At Silver Ridge we started our first day of spring with Spring gardening, planting new flowers in all our raised flower beds!

It was a day well spent and the residents love to see the results of their gardening!

ST. PATRICK'S DAY AT SILVER RIDGE...Top o’ the afternoon to ya! Today at Silver Ridge, we celebrated St. Patrick’s Day with fun Irish music (both beautiful Irish love ballads and fun lively Irish Pub songs), Gold Coin Cookies (Oreos with Gold Color Mist edible spray), festive cupcakes and Shamrock Shakes or… Green Beer, pretzels, and tater tots. Every resident had a green top hat to get into the spirit of wearing ‘o the green! We read Irish Blessings and Irish Toasts, some were lovely and touching and others were humorous and had everyone laughing. We talked about the history of Guinness and then about famous Irish Americans. Tonight we will have Leprechaun Bingo with special games like Four Leaf Clover, E (for Emerald isle) I for Irish and L for Leprechaun etc. We have green necklace and shamrock ring prizes, shamrock cookies and other St. Patrick’s Day related prizes!

“May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light,
May good luck pursue you each morning and night.” -Irish Blessing

HAPPY MARDI GRAS!!!
We had a Mardi Gras Party the other day and crowned our King and Queen of Mardi Gras. Our King Michael is a rehab patient and our Queen Irene is our Resident Council President! We had King Cake and washed it down with hurricanes (minus the rum). We listened to fun Mardi Gras jazz music and danced a second line and we all sang “ When the Saints Go Marching In”. We talked about the history of Mardi Gras and that the day is the last day of eating yummy rich food and singing and dancing before the solemn period of lent that begins tomorrow with Ash Wednesday. Leslie Bon Ton Roulet! (Let the good times roll!)

VALENTINE'S DAY AT SILVER RIDGE...Today at Silver Ridge we had a Valentine’s Day party with Rebecca playing love songs on the piano and residents sang along to those old familiar tunes. We also had a “Name That Love Song” Game. We had gift boxes and valentine cards for every resident delivered to their room this morning with an invitation to the party. The gift boxes contained either valentine chocolate candy or, for those with a puree diet, pudding and Cinnamon Applesauce. Those who are NPO got Valentine balloons with their Valentine Cards. LOVE IS IN THE AIR!!!

CHRISTMAS EVE AT SILVER RIDGE...Every year on Christmas Eve, we distribute gifts to every resident at Silver Ridge Healthcare Center. Staff members “adopt” residents and the Volunteers from Caesar’s Entertainment “Caesar’s Heroes” also adopt about 25 of our residents and assist in the distribution process. It truly is a grand production and is the most fun day of the year for staff who get to play Santa!
