The week started off with a Ladies Tea to celebrate our grandmothers, mothers, and important ladies in our lives. It was an elegant social occasion of family and friends. Other social events throughout the week included an Eden Alternative Relaunch Party and Petting Zoo to highlight our Eden Alternative Care philosophy journey and future (and to pet some fun, furry creatures!), a Cold Stone Creamery Ice Cream Social, tie-dying activity for residents and staff, and a waffle breakfast for residents and staff. To particularly recognize our nurses during National Nurses Week (which coincided this year with National Nursing Home Week) and our CNAs, we enjoyed the hilarity of the Nurse and CNA obstacle courses, which involved many heroic stunts performed at far more rapid speeds than typical during these care providers’ normal work routines.
