ROCKDALE RESIDENCE & REHAB NEWS

Our Fall Festival last week was a huge success. We would like to thank everyone who participated, who baked apple pies for our contest, and everyone who assisted our residents for the cake walk. What a great group of people coming together to support this event. Our residents had a wonderful time.

For the next couple of weeks, we are proud to announce several facility events and community events.

On Oct. 16 we celebrate National Popcorn Poppin’ month. Our residents will enjoy a Popcorn Poppin’ Social.

On Oct. 18 we will be celebrating Country Music Month. At 10:30 a.m. we will have a Country Music Social with pretzels, root beer and country music.

On Oct. 21 we will be enjoying a Fall Garden Outdoor Social at 2:30 p.m. On Oct. 25 some of our residents will enjoy a “fine dining” experience at lunch.

Last week we celebrated with our Dietary Staff. They were given a wonderful luncheon of taco soup and spaghetti. Gifts were given and we celebrated what a great job our dietary staff does for our building. To all of our dietary staff “thank you” for everything you do for our residents, families and your co-workers.

Rockdale Residence is still involved with the Rockdale Senior Center. Once a month we will be giving presentations on numerous subjects and the last Wednesday of the month we will be calling a “mean” game of Bingo. Please join us.

We would like to do another Christmas Shopping Jamboree and maybe combine it with a chili supper. Please let us know if you are interested in being a vendor. We will only be able to hold this event if we have good participation.

Don’t forget–we will be hosting our Halloween Trick-or-Treating so please let those kiddos dress up in their costumes and come to our building to load their buckets with candy. We will host this safe and fun event Oct. 31 starting at 4 p.m.

A very special congratulations to Roselee Jones for being our September Employee of the Month. Roselee is a wonderful team member with our housekeeping/laundry department. She is hard working, loving, compassionate and a team player. Congratulations Roselee.

We also congratulate Dr John Armour for being our Resident of the Month. He is loved by all here at our facility. Congratulations Dr. Armour.

Rockdale Residence & Rehabilitation is located at 222 S FM 487 in Rockdale.
