Lake City, IA: We Are Off to the Races

Who knew wheelchair races could be so exciting? Many residents and staff turned out to view the friendly competition on Tuesday morning during National Nursing Home Week. Staff were paired up to race down a good length of the room and then back again to the finish line. Maneuvering the chair was trickier than expected, especially when turning around to go back! After several runs the winners were paired up to race to determine the champion. Honors went to Shawni G.; her speediness and quick turnarounds made all the difference! Everyone, especially the residents, enjoyed the spectacle, cheering the competitors on and sharing in the laughter.

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