Friday May 4, 2018 - May is Older Americans Month

May is Older Americans Month, a month designated to raise awareness about issues facing older adults, and to highlight the way older Americans are advocating for themselves, their peers, and their communities. Here at North Shore Health Care Center, we honor our Seniors for sharing their wisdom and
experience with the us every day. May 13-19 is designated as National Skilled Nursing Care Week-an opportunity to recognize the role of skilled nursing care centers in caring for America’s seniors and individuals with disabilities. We are very fortunate to have our beautiful new care center to provide opportunities for the elders of our community to participate in activities that enrich their physical, mental, and emotional well-being.

May will be a busy month at the Care Center with a lot of activity indoors and outdoors. The residents are anxious to get outside to enjoy some sunshine, and start on our gardening projects. There will be games, reading groups, movies, and plenty of live music to fill our time indoors as well.

The monthly birthday party will be held on May 9 at 3 p.m. to honor Jane Burley. You are invited to come and share in the festivities. We’ll have Eleanor’s delicious cake and ice cream. Doug Sanders will be here to play our favorite tunes on the piano too.
The Minnesota Fishing Opener is May 12. We plan to spend some time on the patio reminiscing about “the big one that got away”, and any other fishing tales the residents may want to share. Some tasty fish treats will also be served.

We’re hoping for sunny weather on Memorial Day when we will have our first picnic of the year. There will be hotdogs right off the grill, along with potato salad, baked beans, and watermelon!

The annual Volunteer Appreciation Brunch will be held on Wednesday, May 23 at 10 a.m. The residents and staff want to acknowledge the many volunteers who have shared their time, talent, and friendship during this past year. We couldn’t provide the activities we offer without your help. You truly make our home a brighter place. You enrich the lives of our residents, and help them keep connected to their community. Thanks for all you do!

We want to express our deep love and gratitude for one of our volunteers who passed away recently. Walt Mianowski was an avid volunteer at the Care Center for over 35 years, most recently as “Mr. Bingo” faithfully coming every week to call Bingo. We were able to enjoy his presence as a resident of North Shore Health Care Center for a brief time, and for that we are grateful. He had many friends here, and we will dearly miss him.

For more information about volunteer opportunities at North Shore Health Care Center or to check out the May calendar of events on our website or contact the Activity Department at 387-3518.
 
We will always remember the dedication, caring, and endless sense of humor that Walt Mianowski shared with the residents over his many years of service as a dedicated volunteer. We will miss him.

Monday April 9, 2018 - Spring Fever at the Care Center

The residents were working hard last week filling eggs for the community Easter egg hunt held on March 31st. There were 2,902 eggs filled in all! This project is a community service that the residents participate in every year. It brings them a lot of satisfaction knowing they are helping make it a
special day for the little ones.

Spring fever has arrived at North Shore Health Care Center, and the residents are looking forward to warmer weather and longer days of sunshine. We are anxious to get outdoors and start renovating our patio areas, now that the construction is done. As we wait for the rest of the snow to melt, there will be plenty of indoor activities to keep us busy.

The monthly birthday party will be held on Wednesday April 11th at 3:00 p.m. to honor Trudy Boyd, Shirley Hewitt, and Mary Meyers. Cake and ice cream will be served along with piano classics by Doug Sanders.

Our “Babes and Bonnets” group this past winter was a huge success with the residents. They made unique hats that were given to babes and moms of the community at a social held on March 10th. Because the residents had so much fun with the little tikes, we will be hosting them again on April 14th.

April 15-21 marks National Volunteer Week-a time to recognize the efforts of volunteers at the local, state, and national levels. The residents and staff at the Care Center wish to thank our many dedicated volunteers for all the extraordinary things they do. They bring their many talents, time, and companionship to us all year long, and are a vital part of the Activity Department programming. There will be a volunteer appreciation brunch held in May to celebrate and honor our volunteers.

An outing is planned for April 26 to visit our friends at the Senior Center, and enjoy a delicious lunch with them.

We have many music events planned for April. Myron Bursheim will be here most Sunday afternoons in April at 2:30 p.m. Harris Mills will be coming to the Care Center on April 9 and 30th at 3 p.m., and Susan Scherer will be here on Wednesdays at 4:30 p.m. Pastor Darren Blanck and Joyce Krueger will host a gospel sing-a-long on Monday April 16 at 2:00 p.m. Amy Schmidt and friends will play on April 24 at 2:00 p.m. A dance will be held with Portage Band on Saturday April 28 from 6:30-8:00 p.m. Family and friends are always welcome to join us for any of our musical events!
