Father’s Day Dinner

Thursday, June 13th we hosted our annual Father’s Day Dinner. This year’s theme was western. For dinner our residents and their families ate bbq pork steaks, baked beans, baked potato, salad, and peach pie or apple pie.

We had entertainment by Paul Jarvis, a Willie Nelson impersonator.

Everyone had such a wonderful time!

To all the Dads out there, thank you, for everything.

Auxiliary Salad Luncheon

The Hitz Auxiliary hosted their annual Salad Luncheon, on Friday, June 7th at 1:00pm. The theme was beach party and we had a menu of mini chicken salad, turkey and ham sandwiches, spring salad, and then members of the community made different sides to share. It is always fun to see what everyone brings and to try all the different recipes!

They had a silent auction and raffle prizes.

They also had entertainment by the 60’s Chicks! Everyone had such a wonderful time.

Thank you to everyone who came and helped make this year another success!

Nursing Home Week – Beach Day

For the last day of Nursing Home Week, we had a beach party. Vitas Hospice came in and made ice cream sundaes for us, we listened to beach party music, had decorations, and of course we had leis. We were so busy having fun and enjoying ourselves we only got two pictures!

This past week has been crazy, hectic, and so much fun!

I just want to give a giant thank you to all the staff here at Hitz, they made this week (and every week) so amazing for our residents.

Nursing Home Week – Fiesta Day

Our fourth day of Nursing Home Week, we celebrated Fiesta Day! We had maracas crafts, music, a piñata, and margaritas. Some of our residents opted for virgin margaritas while a few others wanted the real deal, (don’t worry, it was a tiny amount and all approved by a doctor!). Most of the residents opted for a bandana while hitting the piñata, and after all the residents had a few turns they wanted to see the staff knock it down. We had so much fun!
