Lake City, IA: Baby Boom at Shady Oaks

At Shady Oaks Care Center, we strive to go above and beyond—not only for our residents, but for our team members as well! Our World Class Retention Team has been busy planning baby showers monthly! With many ladies expecting here at Shady Oaks, we have been combining showers and celebrating together. This past month we celebrated three lovely team members by showering them with gifts, blue and pink cupcakes, mints, and punch. The shower started out with each mom announcing when they were due and if they knew the gender of their baby. The residents especially enjoyed getting to meet Amber Spangler’s (CNA) baby who was now around five weeks old! After playing a nursery rhyme game, the ladies took turns opening their gifts. The residents “oohed and ahhed” over the adorable outfits they received, as they were passed around for them to view. Refreshments were served as everyone visited and buzzed about the baby boom! We have at least five more expecting moms to celebrate in the months to come!

Quality Life-We will create a living environment that radiates love, peace, spiritual contentment, dignity and safety, while encouraging personal independence.
