Summer barbecue Thursday


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.

We will be having our annual summer barbecue on Thursday for family and friends of our residents. We are hoping to have good weather on that day, so we can enjoy the barbecue on our patio.

Games throughout the week provided fun and laughter. On Sunday afternoon, four residents played Uno with Jeanette Baker winning. On Monday afternoon, six residents played Crazy Eights. On Wednesday afternoon, 10 residents played Bingo, and on Friday afternoon, eight residents played Bingo. Kenny Hoagland and Nadine Caleb won Four Corners. Pat Sims and Carol Higby won Blackouts. Our Bingo helpers were Gloria Rakness, Connie Hood and Lila Worden. On Saturday afternoon, six residents played Blackjack with Jeanette Baker winning.

Residents enjoyed watching movies during the week. Every evening several residents watch Turner Classic Movies. On Tuesday afternoon, five residents watched the VCR movie, “Million Dollar Baby”.

On Sunday afternoon, Reverend Mikki Laws of the Encampment Presbyterian Church led church for residents. She gave Communion to those residents. Doris Davis assisted on the keyboard with traditional religious music.

On Monday, Thursday and Friday mornings, residents listened to a new book, Mary Higgins Clark’s “No Place Like Home”.

For Lunch Out at the Saratoga Senior Center, two residents had beef stroganoff on Monday, and five residents had crab cakes on Friday.

On Monday during supper, Nancy Facciani played old favorites on her accordion for 24 residents.

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