National Nursing Home Week was held May 12-18, and at Violet Tschetter Memorial Home was fun for all. This year’s theme, set by American Health Care Association, was “Team Care.”

Each day VTMH selected a team sport theme. Monday was bowling and there was a pizza party.

The pizza was actually provided to us courtesy of the cook, Sheila Leichtenberg and Casey’s, so the residents could have delivered pizza. How wonderful to be recognized by a dedicated employee and a business in the community.

Tuesday was baseball and the residents made crackerjacks. Wednesday was volleyball day, which ended with an open house and an ice cream sundae bar. It was also a special day for resident, Marvin Knutson and his wife, Shirley, who celebrated their 58th wedding anniversary.

Thursday was football day along with a chili cook off. Five employees brought their special chili concoctions and after residents and employees judged, Robin Skinner was named the “People’s Choice’” winner.

Nursing Home Week wrapped up with a racing day in honor of the Turkey Races.

VTMH is thankful for all the families and businesses who recognized residents and employees during the week.
