Hello from Westfield Quality Care of Aurora.
I will continue to mention this one more time, I apologize for the repeat message but it is very important that we have amazing Easter baskets for the residents. I want to say thank you to everyone who has already donated items for the resident Easter baskets, you really do not know how much this appreciated. With that I will continue to ask for donations. Please help make our residents Easter baskets full of exciting and entertaining items. Westfield is making Easter baskets for all the residents, and we are asking for donations of word search books, adult coloring books, colored pencils and playing cards. Any donations can be dropped off at the Westfield front desk.
The residents played many games this week, they did The Price is Right, Jeopardy, and always their favorite, BINGO. We had artists at work as well coloring beautiful pictures. Don’t forget to check out our Facebook page to see all the great activities that are happening at Westfield.
For our COVID update this week; Hamilton County is NOT in high positivity rate, so masks are NOT required at this time. We will continue to check the community positivity rates every Friday. We always want visitors to self-monitor and please don’t visit if you are feeling ill. I will continue to add this bit of infection control reminders, wash your hands frequently, and use hand sanitizer often. If you have any COVID symptoms or have been knowingly exposed to COVID please stay home and take care of yourself, we will take good care of the residents, so you do not have to worry.
Here are some interesting facts about spring:
The name "Spring" has revolved over the years. In Old English, it was named Lent. Then at some point by the 14th century, that time of year was called "springing time" in reference to the plants and flowers springing from the ground. By the 15th century, it was shortened to "spring-time" and then by the 16th century it was further shortened to Spring.
Scientists believe the term "Spring Fever" to be a real thing that happens to people in Spring. With longer daylight and warmer weather, people become more active increasing blood flow, creativity and ultimately are HAPPIER!
Tulips are one of the first flowers to bloom in Spring. They mean HAPPINESS!
Have a great weekend,
