Preparing for spring


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.

With spring nearly here, we are going to get the facility’s garden going again. If anyone from the community is interesting in assisting in this project to prepare the ground and then plant seeds, please call Brenda Eaton, our Director of Nursing.
