The Saratoga Sun -

Activities include Super Bowl


At Deseret Health and Rehab, residents enjoyed many activities throughout the week. The Activity Department offers a wide variety of activities each week to meet the residents’ interests, as well as the physical, mental and psychological well-being of each resident.

Hair Care and Nail Care are important activities. Usually the Activity Room is full and sometimes there is even a line out the door. On Wednesday morning, Janice Kerpan and Mildred Hennek gave eight ladies beautiful hairdos. Brenda Zeiger did Nail Care with nine residents.

Games throughout the week provided fun and laughter. On Monday afternoon, four residents played Dominoes. On Wednesday afternoon, 15 residents played Bingo, and on Friday afternoon, 13 residents played Bingo. Jeannie James, Carol Higby, Helen Schmidtt and Jeanette Baker won Four Corners, and Dora Martin, Sunny Behonek and Carol Higby won Blackouts. Our Bingo helpers were Betty Dean, Lila Worden, Barbara Wise, Dawna Erickson and Roxie Baldwin.

On Sunday afternoon, Virginia Senne of the Presbyterian Church offered Communion to seven residents.

On Sunday afternoon, Pastor Hughes of the Abundant Life Fellowship led our church service. Doris Davis assisted with religious music on the keyboard.

On Sunday evening, eight residents watched Super Bowl XLVII with the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers. The residents had popcorn and root beer at half time.

For Lunch Out at the Saratoga Senior Center, six residents had hamburgers on Monday, and six residents had salmon patties on Friday.

On Tuesday morning, Pastor Smith of the Platte Valley Christian Center offered Bible Study residents.

On Thursday at supper, Teense Willford sang and played country western music on his guitar to 28 residents.

Evening activities included Turner Classic Movies “Bonnie and Clyde” on Monday, “Billy Budd” on Tuesday, “All Quiet on the Western Front” on Wednesday, “Anne of a Thousand Days” on Thursday, “Wilson” on Friday, and “Viva Zapata” on Saturday. On Tuesday afternoon, residents watched the VCR movie, “Stepmom”.

We wish to thank Roxie Baldwin for the candy donation for Bingo, and Betty Dean and Lila Worden for the jewelery donation for Bingo. Also, we wish to thank Teense Willford for the kind financial donation and Virginia Senne for the picture puzzle donation.
