Although Residents of Waldron Nursing & Rehab are still doing in room
and individual interest due to the COVID-19 restrictions of when we
have positive results returned from the COVID testing of all residents
and staff. At this time we do not have any residents that tested
positive and staff members that did are not in the facility at this
time. Hopefully from the last testing that was done there will be zero
Alex is still helping keep everyone busy with their individual
interest from choosing something from the “Busy Cart” that he
takes along the hallways each day. From the doorway of each room the
resident chooses what item they would like to have, whether it is a
magazine, newspaper, Trivia question sheet, adult art page or word
search/cross word puzzle. We also have another puzzler in the facility
and she spends lots of hours working jig saw puzzles using the puzzle
table that gave Janis Hull so much pleasure over the years.
“Thanks” to whoever brought the bigger piece puzzles for Shirley
to work. She can create a beautiful finished puzzle in just a matter
of days. If anyone has some of the bigger piece puzzles they would
like to donate we will be happy to have them.
Alex has also been doing lots of one on one activities of painting
fingernails in many bright colors along with helping several with
their Trivia questions. He passed out ice cream one day which is
always a winner with everyone.
Hopefully one of these days we can get back to normal events. If
everyone would do their part in getting the Vaccine shot.
In closing please keep washing the hands, wear a mask and use the hand
sanitizer. Even though we are still not scheduling family visits you
may do through the glass visits using cell phones. Just let us know so
we can have the resident ready for the visit. For residents who have
their own cell phones they can talk to one another anytime.
