Callus, Diabetic and Nail Care. He will accept most

major insurance plans including Medicare. ALSO,
the Special Care shoe clinic will be back in May if
enough people are interested. The program allows
any diabetic the opportunity to get fitted and receive
brand new pair of shoes one time per calendar year.
Please see Kristy for more information or if you are
interested in either of these opportunities.
The residents at Waterford Senior Living like to be busy and feel useful. The
last few weeks we have been VERY
busy and useful. Since the beginning of
the month we have stuffed 475 envelopes and got them ready for the mail,
we have addressed 400 post cards and
mailed them, and we have stuffed 2000
bags for the Waterford Home and Commerce Show. At one point we had 20
people working on stuffing bags at one time. Our turn around time is fantastic. We
did the 475 envelopes in 1 1/2 hours and we stuffed all those bags in just 2 afternoons. This has turned into a great, fun, social event. We have also gained a great
reputation as good community friends and helpers. All
we ask for in payment is chocolate.
Pancake Day 2011
Employee o/t Month
Spot Light on:
March 7th was International Pancake Day
at Waterford Senior Living. Boy! did we do
it up right. Our day started off with pancakes for breakfast. Then at 9:30 we held
our Pancake Races which included the Pancake Race (walking course w/pancake flip),
a Pancake Flipping Contest (how many flips
in 30 seconds) and a Pancake Eating Contest (fastest to eat 1 pancake). A big thank
you to all residents who came and participated and the spectators. We all had a
great time. Thanks to my volunteers Jim,
Joyce and Carrie for helping out with this
fun filled event. Who knew you could do so
much with a pancake.
Winning race results:
In the afternoon we held an Ecumenical
Shrove Tuesday Service put on by Deacon
Carl and accompanied by Sue on the piano.
This was followed with an English High Tea.
We ate fancy cookies and
drank tea. The ladies all wore
their fancy hats. The men
wore hats too.
