States history. Also, a documentary on French
pirate, Jean Lafitte.

creations are simply
beautiful. Take a look!
Creativity in Seniors
With Dementia
Dan Cohen of New York had a
simple idea: Furnish people that have
memory loss with an iPod loaded with
their favorite music. It’s helping people
reconnect with themselves by listening
to their personal playlists. Cohen notes,
“Residents who were formerly idle
become engrossed in listening to their
favorite music. They choose the songs
they want to hear. They become
engaged as the music triggers
memories. Sometimes the experience
can even make people more social.”
Headphones are recommended to
minimize distractions. Sit together, turn
on the iPod and watch for smiles
of delight.

How Times Have Changed

handmade envelope.
Some of your experiences that were
once part of everyday life are now
foreign concepts to today’s
generation. See if you remember these
things that have faded away with the
changing times.
Party lines. Between 1930 and 1950,
phone service for many rural and
suburban homes consisted of a party
line—a telephone line shared among
several households. It was possible for
anyone on the party line to pick up
their phone receiver and end up in the
GLAMMA!
Aren’t these nails GORGEOUS! They belong to
one of our residents. Her daughter comes by
every week to give her a new mural for her
nails. Who is this sassy Glamma?
Look on page 3.
middle of someone else’s call, so
conversations were not always private.
S&H Green Stamps. Similar to
today’s rewards programs, many
retailers offered S&H Green Stamps as
bonuses to shoppers based on the
dollar amount of their purchase.
Shoppers could save up stamps and
exchange them for merchandise from
a catalog. S&H and other stamp
programs were most popular in
the mid-1960s.
TV stations signing off. Before the
days of 24-hour broadcasting, TV
stations would often end the day’s
programming in the early morning
hours by playing a recording of the
national anthem. Today, instead of
signing off, infomercials are often the
norm for overnight schedules.

Sept. 11 marked 13 years since the terrorists’
attacks on America. That was the largest loss of
firefighters in the line of duty ever in the United
States history. Our facility did not forget the lives
of those men and women who served our
country. GHCC, Texas City marked the
anniversary by serving an appreciation breakfast
to all firefighters, EMTs and law enforcement
officials in our community.
Here’s a picture of some of Texas City’s finest
firefighters. Below that, our Dietary Director and
Social Services Director.

Resident
Party
On Aug. 29 our
seniors celebrated
Labor Day with a
knock-out party that
was combined with
August birthdays. You
had to be there to
see all of the action!
D.J. Latimer rocked
the facility with music
of the ’50s and ’60s.
The music could be
heard down any hall
and our bed-bound
residents were
clapping their hands
to the beat!
After all that
dancing, the group
cooled down with a
game of indoor
volleyball. Our nursing
staff reported that
most of the residents
fell asleep early that
night. You don’t say!
We did it again! Another trip to Isle of Capri Casino in
Lake Charles, Louisiana. The minute we got off the bus,
we made our way to that delicious buffet. So much to
choose from! We stopped just one shrimp away from
being too full. No time to nap.....Cha Ching!!! Our
caregivers did a wonderful job of making sure our five
residents were happy.
You can look at this photo to tell who won and who
didn’t!
