Salyersville Nursing & Rehabilitation Center celebrated National Nursing Home Week with several different themes for the week. Starting off the week we went back in time with all the glitz and glam of Old Hollywood with some black and white photo ops and finished the day with a movie and popcorn. Next up we headed south of the border to Mexico and had a grand Fiesta! We made some traditional flower crowns and had an amazing taco bar and of course we had to bust a pinata!! Wednesday we celebrated a little like home with the Kentucky Derby theme! Starting the morning off by making fascinators and finishing the day with a grand derby spread and mint juleps of course! On Thursday we ventured under the sea with the fish and mermaids. Residents enjoyed digging in the sand for treasure and fishing. Later in the day we had and under the sea buffet with mermaid appearances! To round off the week with a bang we had an outdoor cookout with games for staff and residents to enjoy and some campout crafts.
