Nursing Appreciation Week and National Nursing Home Week

May 6-10 we combined Nursing Appreciation Week and National Nursing Home Week with fun filled activities every day for our employees. We wanted to show our appreciation to all our employees for all the hard work they do throughout the year. Gift bags filled with blankets, socks, t-shirts and all kinds of goodies were given out to our employees. We had pizzas delivered for all shifts, an Ice Cream Social, our Second Annual Chili Cook Off, and What’s Wrong in this Room Scenario Game. Special Thanks to Palms Home Care, Senior Medicaid Services, Trilogy and MBV for the donations.

On Wednesday, May 8 the Department heads made breakfast starting at 6:30am in the morning for the first and third shift which featured an omelet station, French toast, pancakes, bacon and sausage. It was definitely a hit with our employees. Thursday, May 9 Trilogy Home Health sponsored root beer float stations and tons of games for our employees. Thank you for your continuing support.

The grand finale on Friday, May 10 was a Pig Roast and Raffle Drawing. Our Administrator, Tony, and Maintenance Director, Mariano, were up at 4:30am roasting the pigs in the outside oven they built on site. The day finished off with all the employees enjoying the pork and all the BBQ sides. To end the fun filled week, every employee who attended the raffle walked out with a prize. What an amazing way to end the week!

Thank you, Team Tarpon “The Dream Team”
