April 2018 Newsletter

National Volunteer Week
April 15th-21st

We would like to thank all of our volunteers that take time out of their busy schedules to come visit our residents. Volunteers range from conducting bible study, serving ice cream, playing games, reading, taking strolls or simply socializing with our residents. Our volunteers really make a difference in the lives of our residents, so please take time to show your appreciation through the month of April.

Occupational Therapy Month

As an occupational therapist or occupational therapy assist ant, you are part of a vitally important profession that helps people across the lifespan participate in the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities. Y our holistic and customized approach to evaluations, interventions, and outcomes help a child with disabilities participate in school and in social situations, assist a person recovering from injuries to regain skills, aid an older adult to stay as independent as possible, and offer the specialized support and services to people of all ages and in all circumstances that only occupational therapy can provide.

 

Full Pink Moon

The full pink moon occurs on April 29. Herb moss pink, or wild ground phlox, is one of the earliest wildflowers to bloom during this time of year. As the name infers, the flowers are pink in color, thus the name for April’s full moon. Other names sometimes used are full sprouting grass moon and egg moon.
