Our residents are still able to participate in many of their favorite activities, and some have even learned new hobbies! Thanks to the creativity of team members, they’re also still playing fun games like bingo. Here are some of our favorite, fun stories:
Johnny Anderson, a resident at Walker Methodist Levande loves to collect yearbooks and newspaper articles. He even has collections from the 1930s! When team members stop by for visits, Johnny looks up names and shares interesting information.
Barbara is an aspiring artist at Walker Methodist Place who has always loved various forms of artistic expression. “I’ve been seriously learning about and practicing watercolor painting for about four years,” said Barbara. “I’m dedicated to this endeavor and am enjoying it now more than ever.” She created this wonderful painting to encourage our team members.
Many residents love being active! Fitness technicians at our communities are finding creative ways to provide exercise and programs for residents. Here, Natalie Doornink, fitness tech at Walker Methodist Levande, leads a group in hallway exercises.
At Walker Methodist Plaza, residents are showing off their creativity! When team members come by, residents pick something from the activity cart. They’ve painted wooden decorations and ceramics, completed puzzles, decorated birdhouses, and more. Residents at Plaza and many other communities (like Care Suites of Edina and Levande) still play bingo, too, and love winning prizes.
