On The Bright Side

Mary Howell

Hemphill Care Center is presently undergoing an extreme home makeover.  With remodeling beginning the first week in February, things have been kinda crazy around here. The construction workers and staff have been busy little bees trying to keep the residents calm and comfortable.  Routines have been thrown out the window. The residents have been moved from one room to another while their own room was being painted.  The first of the remodeling was the hardest, making it necessary for us to remain in our rooms throughout the daytime.  Meals were served in our rooms because the sheetrock was being re-done and sanded.

During the month, our activities almost came to a standstill due to inclement weather, illness and remodeling. We enjoyed the few activities that we did have.  We appreciate all the faithful volunteers that came despite the bad weather.

Valentine’s Day was a happy day for all of us.  Our Valentine party was hosted by our friends from the VFW Ladies Auxiliary Post # 10351.  Bobby Butler was crowned the Valentine King with Ann Strickland being crowned our Queen.  They were presented with nice gifts made especially for them. The day was certainly a day of love shared with our residents, staff and friends.

The Resident Council selected Ann Strickland as our Resident of The Month, Hemphill Church of Christ as our Volunteers of the Month and Evelyn Roberts and Elizde Carranza as our Employees of the Month.

Love and deepest sympathy are extended to the families of James Hardy, Henry Phillips, Maxine Ladner, Mary Green, Marvin Baker and Ray Roberts.

We are looking on the bright side and awaiting the completion of our remodeling project.  Our home will soon be bright and beautiful.  We welcome all our families and friends to drop by to see all the improvements have been made thus far.

The residents of Hemphill Care Center wish each one a happy week that is filled with God’s blessing.
