Last week, we had the great pleasure of delivering a “late” holiday present to the residents of Thomas Landing Senior Living Community in Rice Lake, Wisconsin.
The picture of the smiles on the resident’s faces will be a lasting memory for me. I talked to each one of them as they boarded for their first ride on the bus and they just couldn’t believe it. One even mentioned that it seemed like a dream!
The possibilities are endless
Our activity program is called “A Part of You”. The program is based around things that the residents like to do, not what our staff are accustomed to doing. By having a bus, this gives the staff the ability to plan a variety of events. “Everything from a simple run to the grocery store, or to the doctor, or on special excursions, the possibilities are really endless.” states Dean Bloemke, President of Welcome Home Management.
As we left the community that day, the residents were still beaming, it had us thinking that maybe, this day couldn’t have gotten any better.
Congratulations to the residents and staff at Thomas Landing Senior Living community. We sure hope you enjoy your new wheels!
