Meet our residents

 

I can't believe how easy it is for me to get out and enjoy things again. Our beautiful bus and wonderful staff make our adventures so much fun! It's wonderful how friendly people are no matter where we go. This lovely couple stopped to let us all ooh and aah their beautiful miniature collie.

Family Photo Day

Our very talented Activities Director, Kris Leonard, started a new tradition several year ago call Family Photo Day. Residents can have their pictures taken with their families, by themselves or with a special friend. Kris takes the pictures and develops them on the spot - as many copies as they want. This year they could also choose a button or a magnet keepsake of the photo. Needless to say, it is always a big hit and great fun for all of the families and friends of our residents. Thank you Kris for these awesome pictures!

Alice was happy to have so many generations represented in this family photo - including the family dog! Irene always has a beautiful smile on her face. We love seeing her light up the room. There's no denying the family resemblance of Alice and her sister.

 

2016 Happy New Years!

New Years eve at Legacy and Pleasantview is always a happy time. As usual, our residents enjoyed a yummy selection of appetizers and bottles of sparkling juice. A good time was had by all!

Oh to have skin this beautiful! Mary, you are gorgeous! Terry's always up for a good time - you can tell by the devil in her eye. Hmmm . . Veronica likes to look everything over before making a choice.

 

Holiday activities

The friendly activities staff at Pleasantview goes all out for holidays. Our goal is to make each and every resident enjoy the special warmth and excitement the holiday seasons bring.

Nothing beats the smell of fresh baked goodies. Today's project was a yummy coffee cake - one of Linda's favorites. Later it was craft time. Anna was working intently on a special Christmas ornament. Francis always has a smile on her face - today she's showing off her newly completed Christmas star. Pleasantview encourages family to visit whenever they can. Eva's daughter often stops for a quick visit on her way home from work.

A quick trip around Pleasantview Care Center to meet our residents

A couple of days ago, we took a trip around Pleasantview just to talk to people and see what was going on that day. Below are a few of the pictures we took.

Joyce is always busy. She is the morning and evening activities announcer, calls bingo on weekends and runs a beading class with another resident. I love that she always seems to have a flower in her hair. Ginny, president of resident council is a very active resident at Pleasantview. Pat (pushing the wheelchair) is a favorite staff member. I don't know where they were going but they looked very happy about it. Apple is always a bundle of fun and ready to go on an excursion or special event. In her spare time, which isn't much, she serves as vice president of resident council.
