On the Bright Side

by Mary Howell


                The residents of Hemphill Care Center wish to express our appreciation to Pat Bradberry and her employees for all they do to make life happy for us who are at home at the Care Center.

                We say thank you to those who cook our meals, do our laundry, keep our rooms clean, drive the van, and make repairs to our home.

                We say thank you to our nurses, the nursing aids and physical therapists too who take care of our health needs.

                We also thank our office personnel who file our records and keep everything going correctly.

                We give recognition to our employees of the month CNA Amber Gottschald and Activity Director Melissa Williams.

                The Resident Council selected Frances Cutright as our Resident of the Month. She faithfully distributes the bibs for us every meal of the day.

                Quincy Martindale was named Volunteer of the Month. He often comes to play the piano and sing for us. 

                Several of our dear friends have passed away since my last Care Center update. We give our love and sympathy to the families of Julia Boothe, Jim Olive, King Davidson, Patsy Hardy, Eva Winn, and Mary Jones.

                The churches providing worship services and gospel singing during August were Community Fellowship Church, First Baptist Church, Hemphill Church of Christ, Fairdale Baptist Church, Bethel Chapel Baptist Church, Parkway Baptist Church, Antioch Baptist Church, Harvest Assembly of God Church, and the Church of Jesus Christ of Ladder-day Saints.

                August Bingo sponsors include Kelli from East Texas Home Health, Church of Christ, Carletta from Consolidated Healthcare Services, American Legion Post #197, Parkway Baptist Church, and Blair from Texas Home Health.

                We say thank you to the Lakes Area Hospice Clowns for their Monday afternoon sing-a-long.

                Last Wednesday we enjoyed a concert by the Pineywood Pick’rs. It’s always a pleasure to watch them play their string instruments. We appreciate the cookies and punch they provide for us.

                The August birthday party was sponsored by Brandi from Harbor Hospice and honored Ricky Page, Dorothy Butler, Estella Tibbs, Virginia Broussard, Herbert Ezernack, and Lucille Melde.

                We enjoyed our visit with the VFW Ladies Auxiliary Post # 10351.

                Today we will honor our med-aids with a party.

                The staff of Hemphill Care Center certainly abides with the motto “Compassionate About Residents Every Day” to give us a life on the bright side.
