Several times a year the folks at Greater Hope Church stop by bearing gifts, treats and organizing plenty of fun. Residents look forward to these worship visits and often family members join us. Greater New Hope is a riveting group that manage to get everyone involved on their visits. We sang familiar songs such as “If You’re Happy and You Know It” and “He’s Got the Whole World In His Hands”. We’re certainly looking forward to seeing them again very soon!
We’re taking advantage of the beautiful weather and gorgeous fall colors, so Hamilton County’s Parky's Farm is top on our outing list. This educational farm, located within Winton Woods, makes the perfect setting for autumn activities. We spent our afternoon listening to an informative nature lecture, and enjoying the orchard and animals. From horses to chickens and even lamas, it’s a busy farm. The highlight of our adventure, was a great hayride into their pumpkin patch to collect pumpkins.
The talented voices from Bart's Bards ensemble nourished our spirits with their recent visit. They are a theatrical ministry that seeks to promote Christian fellowship through the performing arts. Their skits and songs were truly a delight and had residents clapping and toe tapping. They'll be visiting us at least twice a year, so keep an eye on our calendar and join us!
These days, the sports jersey has become the flag of the sports world. Fans love to broadcast and connect with their favorite team or player by wearing them. So Liberty Nursing Center of Colerain has decided to deem Fridays as Liberty Sports Day. For a modest donation to the residents' fund, staff may wear a sports jersey of their choice to work that day. We love that it's created some fun team rivalry among staff members and also benefits our residents. Funds assist residents with outings, personal needs and food carry-ins, to name a few.
Dads and their sons recently spent the day with Liberty residents as part of La Salle High School's endeavor to foster community involvement in their students. It was great interaction for everyone as residents enjoyed the visit and Freshman bonded with their dads in a faith-related activity.
We appreciate that Hope Lutheran Church comes to visit us at least every other month. Pastor Kristie and her group keep the visits lively with music and worship. Residents enjoy the fellowship, piano playing and are encouraged to sing along.
La Salle High School, an all-male Catholic school here in Cincinnati, motivates their students to become involved in community service. To foster understanding and compassion for the elderly, students visit Liberty of Colerain each Wednesday and Thursday of the school year. Both residents and students benefit greatly from the partnership, enjoying board games, bowling and great conversations.
Being Cincinnati-based, it only stands to reason that we are huge Reds fans, so we try to frequently attend their games. Herman, one of residents, is a regular on these outings. He has fond memories of his family going to the games and he loves the sport. On Aug. 16th, our outing included the Reds Hall of Fame. Herman enjoyed learning more history about the team and some of its famous players. Our outing included a nice meal at Holy Grail and all of us, including Herman, are looking for to our September Reds outing— so stay tuned.
The staff at Liberty Nursing Center of Colerain works diligently to keep our facility humming smoothly— so part of out Staff Appreciation program includes a special team meal from time to time. This month, Staff Appreciation included a hearty breakfast bar. Kenyatta, a new STNA, clearly enjoyed jump starting her day. It was a wonderful buffet that included pancakes, sausage, eggs, bacon and smoothies. It's wonderful to be part of team that values everyone's efforts.
A big thanks to our Admissions Director, Stacey Hert, who recently arranged for TriHealth to visit our campus. In an effort to make early breast cancer detection available to more women, TriHealth now has a program called Women’s Services Van that provides mobile mammographies using advanced digital mammograpy technology. Here, Michelle from our Housekeeping staff is celebrating that she took advantage of the convenience and got screened.
