Well, it’s been looking a lot like the holidays here at the NeuroCare Center. I thought I’d update everyone about what’s been shakin’ here in the activity department. As you can imagine, we’ve been busy, busy, busy- but always having fun! As we do every year, we’ve been trying to go to the Wayne County Lightfest every Thursday night. I personally went recently, with Brian O. and Bradly R. We had so much fun! The holiday music was cranked up, and we sang and laughed the whole way. The lights were quite a spectacle this year- they had the usual displays, but DTE energy sponsored the new addition- blinking musical notes in a rainbow of colors. Very cool.
On December 11, my co-worker Kari and I were fortunate enough to be able to take two of our clients to the Lion’s game. Willie B., James H., Kari and I had a rockin’ good time watching the Lions face the Minnesota Vikings. It was a packed house at Ford Field, and oh yeah, the Lions won!!! The staff was very gracious to our gentlemen- what a great experience!
This past Friday was our annual Winterfest here at NCC. We had a full day of games, crafts, food and excitement. My leader, Amy Blevins, did a great job as always coordinating the whole thing, and all of the awesome therapists, RST’s, and everyone else working that day were so supportive in working the different stations and helping the clients get from one place to another. It always feels so good to see all of us working together to give our clients a good day. One more shout-out has to go to our Dietary Staff for the AWESOME food! We had soup in bread bowls, and fantastic wrap style sandwiches. They worked very hard, and it certainly paid off with compliments from clients, staff and guests alike. We’re all decorated up for the season, with the Christmas tree that our clients helped decorate sitting in the dining room and our menorah lit. I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season. Stay tuned for more updates! There’s always something going on!
