Wayne County Nursing Home staff and residents recently celebrate Nursing Home Week with movie-themed activities.
All households were decorated with a movie of their choice, including “Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory,” “Jaws,” “The Wizard of Oz,” “Singin’ in the Rain,” “Alice in Wonderland” and “Grease.”
The week started with Hat Day, karaoke with volunteer Sharon, classic car racing and gift card drawings for employees. Employees dressed in 1950s attire the next day while eating at a picnic served by administration staff.
Residents enjoyed movies and popcorn on their units and were encouraged to dress in their unit’s theme for a costume parade with staff. The home served an anniversary that night featuring a movie trivia contest.
The week ended with a fashion show and spa day for residents.
Employees were recognized with a ceremony attended by Steven LeRoy, chairman of the board of supervisors; Rose Town Supervisor Kenan Baldridge; County Administrator Rick House; Wolcott Town Supervisor Lynn Chatfield; Galen Town Supervisor Steve Groat; and Lyons Town Supervisor Brian Manktelow.
