The residents at Quinlan have really been enjoying cooking and baking in the houses!  We have purchased many new kitchen gadgets including blenders, mixers, Instapots, air fryers, and an ice cream maker.  All of our microwaves also work as convection ovens.  Residents have been making baked goods, pizzas, applesauce and much more.  We have also been enjoying music and prayer services with Andrew on a weekly basis along with sip and paints.

February and March are big birthday months here.  We have had many themed parties including St. Patrick's Day, wrestling, superheroes, and Elvis. 

Residents are enjoying spending time outside again and visiting with families.  We have several therapy bikes at Quinlan that residents are enjoying riding around campus.  The Kaperl ladies recently had one of their favorite events - spa day - complete with animal-print face masks!  All of the residents continue to participate in in-house CDS and are having a great time participating in a variety of activities with our Instructors.
