Home Happenings - May 2017

Wednesday, May 31, 2017

May has been a nonstop whirlwind of fun here at Cuba Manor from the beginning of the month all the way to the end. Take a look at some of the things we have done here in our home this month... 

We started off the month with our first Annual Car Cruise In.  On a Saturday afternoon, we hosted a car show that had over 20 classic cars on display!  Some of the cars on display even belonged to our residents. Prizes were handed out to the top classic cars throughout the day and one of our current residents, Dixie Payne won 2nd place for her 1977 Chevy truck.  Also in the running was a 1967 Chevy 1/2 ton pickup that belongs to Jerry Stricklin and Dort Feuerhelm was represented by her son-in-law with a beautiful 1946 Ford Hot Rod.  Residents enjoyed the cars, food and multiple prizes given out, not to mention the beautiful sunshine!

Mother's Day is always a heart warming time of year.  Mothers and daughters gathered for music, cheesecake and reminiscing.  Stories were told of childhood memories and lessons learned throughout the years while residents and their families enjoyed cheesecake and coffee as well as old time music.  It is always a blessing to our staff to see families come together and celebrate special moments like these!

May 15th thru May 19th was National Nursing Home Week and the activities around Cuba Manor were nonstop!  We kicked off National Nursing Home Week on Monday with "Sports Day," where our residents and staff dressed in their favorite sports gear, played wheelchair baseball and enjoyed delicious nachos.  On Tuesday, our residents were on cloud nine as we had an all day Bingo marathon!  Wednesday we hosted a Rock-a-Thon where each person grabbed a rocking chair and rocked the day away, raising money as they rocked.  Thursday was "American Pride" day and everyone wore their red, white and blue then took place in an All-American Fashion Show!  To end the week on Friday, we had "Western Day!" Western gear was dug out and we corralled together by the fire to roast hot dogs and burgers.  Residents also slapped their spurs together and teamed up for a rootin' tootin' scavenger hunt!

May ended with our monthly birthday party, all celebrating the birthdays of May together as a group.  We shared cake, ice cream, punch and music with Monty Dale Luke.  We would like to wish a happy birthday to Ardell Evans, Bev Cotton, Gary Skaggs, Jay Moore, Jimalee McPherson, Kay Rinehart, Ann Neff, Reba Brumley and Robert Huff. 

The residents and staff at Cuba Manor would like to thank everyone for their participation and support during this busy month!

Home Happenings - April 2017

Monday, April 17, 2017

This has definitely been a "HOPPIN" week!  Easter week is one of the busiest weeks we have around here! 

After tons of candy was collected, a group of residents gathered at the big round table with their coffee cups and began stuffing eggs.  They stuffed egg after egg and laughed at each other while eggs were rolling around and some refusing to close!  Each one of our residents were excited to see the faces of the children as they hunted.

We had 1000 eggs donated from Lowes Landscaping plus another 1000 eggs we stuffed ourselves.  On Tuesday afternoon, several gathered in the dining room to color hard boiled eggs.  Designs, pastels, neons.... the young at heart enjoyed the true art of egg dying. 

The true excitement began on Friday when the Easter Bunny showed up to our home.  He hopped around the building hiding eggs for our residents to hunt.  Their egg hunt was followed up with punch, cupcakes and pictures with the Easter Bunny.  That afternoon, the kids came flooding in, baskets in hand!  First, they each had their pictures taken then went on a wild egg hunt.  We had children everywhere, with residents leading them to the hidden eggs! 

We would like to say thank you to all that donated their time and candy so our residents and children of the community could enjoy this week!
