Happy New Year! I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday festivities! During the month of January, we celebrate National Activity Professionals week January 19th – 25th. Activities are an important part in our residents’ daily life. Some of the activities you will see on the monthly calendars include baking, music entertainment, happy hour, bingo, church services, exercise, games, and crafts. Activities benefit our residents psychologically, socially, spiritually, intellectually, and physically. By encouraging participation in activities, we help improve mental well-being, reduce isolation, and enhance quality of life. It is also maintenance workers month! Please acknowledge our activity professionals and maintenance departments for their hard work and dedication.

You can also find the newsletter on our website www.winslowhousecarecenter.com. You can view the newsletter under the Activities & News tab under “Newsletter”.
