Jeannie James family donates bench


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 the warm weather of summer, residents are going out on the patio to enjoy it and the flowers. In our pergola, we have a beautiful new wooden bench donated the family of Jeannie James, who was a long-time resident from 2003 to 2013. She enjoyed going out on the patio in the warm weather with other residents to soak up some rays.

Games throughout the week provided fun and laughter. On Sunday afternoon, five residents played Dominoes with Charlotte Gibbons winning. On Monday afternoon, five residents played Yahtzee with Pat Rust winning. On Tuesday morning, four residents played Dominoes. On Wednesday afternoon, 12 residents played Bingo, and Friday afternoon, nine residents played Bingo. Elaine Burge, Dora Martin, Frank Jereb, and Kenny Hoagland won Four Corners.
