SJM’s Christmas Celebrations
Christmas is right around the corner and Santa will be here very soon. Many people are asking us for gift ideas for the residents. Some suggestions of gifts that the residents enjoy are warm clothes, sweaters, any large print books/ magazines, non-skid socks, new bed spreads blanks, room decorations, or pictures of the family. The nurses and CNA’s can also give you some good ideas on an individual need’s. Please make sure the gifts are labeled clearly with the resident’s name on them.
This year our Christmas Celebration will change a little for the safety of our Residents as we try to keep the Spirit of Christmas in hearts as normal as we can:
