Welcome Spring!! Taking a few moments outdoors can boost your mood, clear your mind and decrease fatigue. Being able to enjoy the outdoors may be something we take for granted but take a moment to consider the elderly in our community and the barriers they face in spending time outdoors. Physical limitations, the inability to meet some of the environmental challenges of the outdoors and feeling unsafe are at the top of the list. With National Volunteer Week approaching this month, what better way to serve, than helping seniors enjoy the outdoors. At MNRC, we would love to have an extra hand helping residents get a little fresh air, pushing their wheelchairs around the campus for a few minutes or simply sitting and chatting with residents on the outdoor patio.
April is National Volunteer Month and we would like to thank all our wonderful volunteers for their time and talents. We appreciate all you do for us, our residents and their families and hope you will be able to join us for the volunteer appreciation dinner on April 11th. If you haven’t received your invitation, or to RSVP, please call MNRC and ask for Jenn or Leann.
April is also National Occupational Therapy Month. Cheri Broghammer, Occupational Therapy Assistant and Rehab Coordinator and Sara Koenighain, Occupational Therapist both with Millennium Therapy, help our residents in becoming more independent with activities of daily living such as dressing, bathing, toileting and wheelchair mobility. Their enthusiasm and dedication to improving the quality of life for our residents is truly appreciated!
