Baldwin Comforts of Home staff experienced Dementia Live at their last staff meeting! Dementia Live is a high impact dementia simulation experience that immerses participants into life with dementia, resulting in a deeper understanding of what it’s like to live with cognitive impairment and sensory change. It can be frightening to care for someone you don't understand. The Dementia Live training is part of the enhanced dementia training happening in all of our Wisconsin facilities.
We celebrated a fun filled 85th birthday for miss Vivian!! She enjoyed lots of sun out in the patio, a long walk around the pond, and to top off the day she had cupcakes and we did some singing with her.

Sue Carlson attended the Chippewa Falls School District Appreciation Dinner last evening. Comforts of Home was awarded for participating in their Youth Apprenticeship Program. Sue successfully hired a student in this program to work at the Comforts of Home Chippewa Falls RCAC.
Family members of Gracewood of Hugo were invited to honor their mothers and grandmothers with a Mother’s Day tea on Friday, May 12th. The afternoon started with a wonderful performance by Jenni Thyng. Jenni sang a variety of familiar songs as she interacted with the residents. Following Jenni’s performance we had our tea and refreshments. The tables were set with white lace tablecloths, tea sets, and tea cups. Bite-size sandwiches and cakes were served along with a variety of teas, coffee, and pink lemonade. All the women adorned a fancy hat which they had decorated earlier in the week. It was really a nice way to spend the afternoon with loved ones.
Inver Grove Heights I White Pine appreciates their nursing staff!
