What a fabulous ladies day out. It was a reminder of how much outings mean to our residents. It’s more than just getting a change of scenery, eating good food, and enjoying fresh air. It is a chance to take a walk on the wild side, and try something we’ve never tried before. It’s about a no hold bar conversation about everything ranging from raising children, gardens, and chickens. It’s a chance to have a sangria on a hot day, and go on a date with your fiancé. It’s a chance for stakeholders to remember that they aren’t only a group of our residents, but that they are a group of ladies. Ladies who are full of stories, lessons, and laughter. Outings also serve as a reminder, that just because you now live in a nursing facility, you aren’t finished living.
