The Bridge at Rockwood just hosted its annual Senior Prom. It is JUST LIKE a high school prom, only with our elders. The Beta Club at Rockwood High School comes over and dances with our elders, as well as help with the refreshments and entertaining them.

This year, we had at least 50 residents attend, some with dates.

Planning the prom is a several-day project that starts with building and decorating for the theme. This year it was ‘Wish Upon a Star.’ Therapy, nursing staff and families help the residents select from formal attire that is loaned to them for the evening (if they don’t have their own). After getting dress, our ladies had their nails painted, and hair and makeup done by staff and the female high school students.

The residents have individual photos taken before enjoying food, music and dancing during the prom. They all love the prom and are still talking about it. We gave them their photos yesterday, and they are carrying them around showing them to each other – just like high school prom-goers would do!

The Proverbs 31 Ladies Group enjoyed an afternoon of making prayer rocks.  After making them, they distributed them as an encouragement throughout the facility.

 

With all the cold weather we have been having, it was a perfect time for residents to participate in making homemade soup.

 

Our residents love to watch birds so recently made pine cone bird feeders full of things birds love to eat.

As it was too cold to be outside in the snow, our residents improvised by using marshmallows for an indoors snowball fight.
