We are very excited for National Nursing Home Week and I wanted to share out week with you all. In the U.S. the national theme is "Living Soulfully." Monday; we are opening with an entertainer in the morning, and in the afternoon we are holding a "Fellowship Social." Tuesday is "Goat Yoga and Companion Pet Day." We have goats coming in the morning and a yoga instructor. At noon right before lunch we will have some "Pet Jokes." In the afternoon we are having visiting pets. Wednesday is "Nature Day." We are creating nature prints in the morning and rock painting in the afternoon. For those is are unable to participate we have some beautiful nature videos played to music. Thursday is "Kindness Day." We are passing out carnations to all the residents, church service in the morning and Kindness hearts in the afternoon. Friday is "Fun Friday." We have "Buffalo Animal Adventures" coming in. At noon its Funny Jokes and at 2:00 it "Build Your Own Sundaes."

Thank you for sharing Susan
Your plans sound great
You must have the cooperation of all the staff which is needed to make this week successful
I did many things similar to what you are doing
I hope others will share and perhaps get some ideas from you
Thanks again

What a wonderful way to spend the week!! I would love to hear how it goes but particularly the Goat Yoga and Companion Pet Day. I imagine that the residents would get quite a kick out of this fun activity idea! Thanks for sharing.
