Lake City, IA: Creating Laughs

On your mark, get set, GO! Cheering and clapping rang through Shady Oaks as team members and residents put their athletic abilities to the test by racing each other in wheel chairs. Why were we racing wheel chairs you might ask? Monday, March 19th was National “Let’s Laugh” day. The World Class Retention Team coordinated the event with a 10:15 am race and a 4:00 pm afternoon race. Participants were awarded with Laffy Taffy, which guaranteed laughter with quirky jokes hiding in each wrapper. The races started out with team members racing one another but ended with competitive residents stealing the show. We would like to thank the World Class Retention Team for continually planning and providing fun events for both team members and residents. It’s moments like these that make quality memories for everyone to enjoy.

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