Tuesday October 2, 2018 - Care Center News From October 2018

September was a busy month for the residents at North Shore Health. The residents enjoyed seeing the beautiful fall colors on our outing to Maple Hill, and a lot of time was spent on the patio enjoying those beautiful autumn days. With cooler temperatures, October will find us doing more baking,
especially trying some of those apple recipes. The residents will also be doing some fall crafting, and we will start making items for our annual holiday sale to be held in December. Hopefully, we will see a few more sunny, warm days to spend on the patio too!

On September23 (National Centenarian Day), we honored our two centenarians. Congratulations to Ione Jones and Honey Rosen for reaching this milestone!

The monthly birthday party will be held on October 10 at 3 p.m. October birthdays include Ophelia Bassett on October 11th, along with Rose Hasegawa and Ruth Koscialak who share a birthday on October 22nd. Cake and ice cream will be served, and Doug Sanders will be here to play piano for the event.

We look forward to our Oktoberfest celebration to be held on October 16th. The residents will enjoy a wonderful lunch of sausage and sauerkraut. Vera Schuman will be here in the afternoon to make her delicious “Austrian Apfel Strudel”. The fun will continue with “Oktoberfest Happy Hour” with Hilja at 2:30 p.m.

The residents will be going to the Senior Center on October 18th for a delicious lunch, and to visit with all our friends there.

The Lioness will host a social time on October 20 at 3:00 p.m. It’s a fun afternoon visiting with our Lioness friends, and enjoying the delightful desserts they provide.

Plenty of music is planned for the month of October too. Amy Schmidt will again be joining us on October 15 at 2:30 p.m. “The Flute Reed Ramblers” will bring their delightful folk ballads to the Care Center on October 22 at 2:00 p.m. Myron Bursheim will share his musical talents on Sunday afternoons at 2:30 p.m., and Susan Scherer will be here on Wednesdays at 4:30 p.m. Portage Band will be back again this month for a dance on October 27 at 6:30 p.m.

We welcome family and friends to join us for any of our activities or music events.

On October 25th, the residents will be busy filling treat bags for all the little ghosts and goblins who will visit on Halloween. It is always a “treat” for the residents to see the little ones on Halloween, so please stop by the Care Center between 5-6:30 p.m. on Halloween night! The residents wish all the little “trick or treaters” a fun and safe Halloween.

Tuesday September 4, 2018 - Care Center News and Happenings

August has been a busy and fun filled month for the residents at North Shore Health Care Center. Fisherman’s Picnic weekend brought many family and friends to visit, and share in the activities. Several elders went on an outing to watch the Fisherman’s Picnic Parade, and take in the
festivities. We want to thank the Lion’s Club for providing some delicious fish burgers for all the residents during the Picnic. They were a real treat!

Many hours were spent on the patio enjoying the beautiful August weather. Several residents participated in the “Minnow Race” competition held on August 21. There was a lot of laughter and sportsmanship exhibited as they cheered their minnows to the finish line!

As summer draws to an end, we’re hoping for some more sunshine and warm weather to enjoy time outdoors. September will find us doing more baking and fun fall crafts too.

The monthly birthday party will be held on September 12 at 3 p.m. to honor Mary Alice Hansen, Helene Smith, Audrey Pollock, Fern Lovaas, and Marcy Podas. Cake and ice cream will be served. Doug Sanders will be here too, playing our favorite piano tunes. Family and friends are welcome to join us.

We are looking forward to a visit from the Apple Valley Zoo Mobile on September 15. They will be bringing a variety of small animals to visit with the residents.

An outing to the Senior Center for lunch is planned for September 20, and another outing to Maple Hill for a fall leaf tour on September 24.

The residents want to thank our Incredible Exchange student, Wyatt Hadley, who helped with activities most Wednesday and Thursday afternoons throughout the summer. We also would like to thank Jan Parish, our volunteer gardener, who has so diligently kept our flower beds on Co. Rd. 7 looking so beautiful over the years. Jan will be moving from the area, and we are in need of a volunteer to fill her shoes. Please contact the Activity office if you’re interested. We wish Jan well in her new ventures!
