The Martensville Care Home has been busy getting their residents into the Christmas spirit. On Thursday, November 26th, residents had the opportunity to decorate their own gingerbread house.
Two activity coordinators come in seven days a week for two hours a day for light exercises, games and crafts with the residents. “One of the activity coordinators plays guitar and sings for the residents. They love it. We have instruments for them to play along and it is very therapeutic for them,” Charlene Herbers, Manager of the Martensville Care Home explained.
“We try to keep them as busy as we can and keep things normal, especially now with all of the stuff going on in the world and they are unable to see their families. It has been really tough on them,” Herbers added.
On top of creating gingerbread houses, the residents have also been busy making decorations and putting them on the tree. “Our Christmas tree is slowly filling up with all their creations,” Herbers said.
Currently there are ten residents living in the Martensville Care Home, with one room still available. For more information about the Martensville Care Home, contact (639) 441-0125 or email email@example.com.
