A weeks worth of activities at Deseret Health and Rehab


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.

Games throughout the week provided fun and laughter. On Sunday and Monday afternoons, four residents played Dominoes with Frank Jereb and Dora Martin winning.

On Wednesday afternoon, nine residents played Bingo, and on Friday afternoon, eight residents played Bingo. Truth Karstoft and Frank Jereb won Four Corners. Dora Martin and Charlotte Gibbons won Blackouts. Our Bingo helpers were Lila Worden, Betty Dean, Gloria Rakness, and five kids from Big Brothers/Big Sisters, who were accompanied by Julieann Lampke and Ed Kennaday. The kids were Callie Swain, Slayd Daley, Joseph Bates, Emily Gonzales, and Heath Cushing. On Saturday afternoon, residents played Blackjack.

Residents watched the commercial-free Turner Classic Movie channel evenings during the week. On Sunday morning, residents watched the VCR movie, “She Wore a Yellow Ribbon”. On Tuesday afternoon, residents watched a VCR Movie, “Final Destination”.

On Sunday afternoon, Sharon Hughes of the Abundant Life Fellowship led church for residents. Doris Davis assisted with religious music on the keyboard. Residents were happy to have Doris back after her trip to Wisconsin.

On Monday and Thursday mornings, residents listened to Brenda Zeiger read from C. J. Box’s “Open Season” in Reading Fun. On Friday morning, residents listened to stories from True West magazine.
