Fairbury, NE: Alive and “Wool”

We here in Fairbury have been trying to pull out the stops to keep our residents entertained while our building is under lock down in an effort to keep the winter germs at bay!
Fortunately we live in a rural community and have a few opportunities that would not be found in urban settings.

Thanks to my brother-in-law who has sheep on his farm we were able to offer lamb therapy as 2 baby lambs came to visit the facility. Being part of set of triplets they have to be supplemented with a bottle making them nice and tame for our residents to cuddle. Many of our residents were familiar with the practice of raising sheep and told some beautiful stories of their time working on their own farms to help the baby lambs get enough to eat and grow into big sheep!

Excellent Teams-We will select and develop team members who radiate warmth, compassion and respect while skillfully performing their duties.
