A busy Xmas season! We hosted “Quinlights”, a light show in the courtyard, welcoming residents from all areas of campus every Wednesday evening, followed by hot cocoa and holiday activities. The “City Heat" motorcycle group brought Santa Clause along to present gifts to all the residents. They are so generous and the residents love this day each year. Our occupational therapist and recreation leader organize a weekly activity with some of the women to teach them more about independence with personal care. They are having a great time.
Outings galore during the holidays:
- Stomp, Harlem Globetrotters, Lincoln Park Zoo Lights, Winter Wonderland Express at the Botanic Gardens, Mrs Clause play at the Stahl Theater and the Charlie Brown Christmas play at the Rosemont Theater.
Movies included: Mary Poppins, The Grinch and Bohemian Rhapsody, Trips to McDonalds, Ihop and Olive Garden.
- Shopping trips for grab bag items, supplies and holiday decorations.
- And of course haircuts and manicures!!!
