Thanks to all the staff who adorned all the neighborhoods with beautiful decorations brightening the spirits of everyone this season.
Toys for Tots along with Santa and Mrs. Claus made their annual holiday visit to McAuley Residence. Each resident received individual Christmas gifts.
Residents were invited to listen to beautiful holiday music in the Rotunda performed by volunteer parents Mrs. Little on the harp and Mrs.Tesmer on the piano. Beautiful voices of families and friends accompanied the music to the residents’ delight.
Thank you to all of those families and friends who donated gifts to residents and supplies. Among these generous donations were hats and gloves and art supplies which will be put to good use.
Residents are taking good care of the fish housed in one of the classrooms. They feed them, keep their areas clean and with staff, go on outings to purchase food and supplies.
Staff and residents welcomed “Dr. Max”, Max J. Pitlosh M.D. who specializes in Family Medicine at Rush Medical Center. Nurses and staff are looking forward to working with him.
Kudos to our own Dawn Marke (Reception), one of the recipients of the Employee Achievement Award, given out at the Staff Holiday Dinner. Among her winning characteristics mentioned was the welcoming, caring, hospitable way she greets all visitors to McAuley, assisting them in whatever way she can. Congratulations Dawn and thanks for all you do!!!
