Hello from Westfield Quality Care of Aurora.
The residents had fun activities planned this week. We tried our skills at building with toothpicks and marshmallows. Some lessons were learned on how we can make it even better for the next time, but fun was had by everyone. If you noticed our post on Facebook, there was balloon soccer, check out our Facebook page if you haven’t already. As I work on this week’s post, the residents are creating goldfish aquariums, I can’t wait to see how these turn out. I want to thank Shanel and Emily for making the activities a fun and rewarding experience for the residents of Westfield.
For our COVID update this week we did have one resident test positive with our first test this week. What this means is we will have to continue to test staff and residents. So far, our second testing this week has gone well, and there have been no further positives at this time. I will continue to mention, in this week’s post, since COVID continues to be very prevalent in our area, don’t be afraid to wear a mask when in close contact with others, wash your hands frequently, and use hand sanitizer often. If you are having any COVID symptoms please stay home and take care of yourself, we will take good care of the residents, so you do not have to worry.
If you know of a person that is having a hard time living at home, keep Westfield in mind. We are a wonderful option if you are not able to stay home any longer. We offer three meals a day with available snacks, social opportunities to visit with other residents, many different types of activities are available (see our activity calendar under resources). We do housekeeping, laundry, medication management, transportation, and much more. Call Westfield for a tour, we look forward to hearing from you.
Here is a fun fact about July: On July 16, 1969 the crew of the Apollo 11 launched from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida and four days later, on July 20th, Neil Armstrong was the first person to walk on the moon.
It is no surprise to anyone that the red ruby is the official birthstone of July, this valuable gem was known as the king of gems and was once embedded in armor to protect against harm. More commonly the red ruby is known to represent wisdom, love, and health.
