When Barbra Wilson came to our facility's dementia unit a little over a year ago she was frequently agitated and combative, making family visits very discouraging at times. Thanks to the keen observation of Diana Johnson, Liberty Mansfield's Dementia Life Enrichment Coordinator, Barbra's talent and deep love of music was uncovered.
It’s county fair season again, so we’re looking forward to the Richland County Fair’s ageless beauty contest. The pageant features local nursing home residents, who compete for a crown and year-long titles of King, Queen and Duchess. We’re proud that last year’s Queen was our very own Betty Jones, and shortly she’ll be passing the crown on to her 2019 successor. We’d like to take this opportunity to thank Betty for her diligent efforts as she headed up Liberty Nursing Center of Mansfield’s welcoming committee this past year. As a result, she had the pleasure of meeting Matti-Lynn Chrisman, 2018’s Miss Ohio, when she visited our community several months ago. Here, Betty and Matti-Lynn are meeting in our community room where Betty passed on a few insightful tips about the responsibilities of wearing the crown. We’re all looking forward to the announcement of 2019’s ageless beauty winners!
