Classic Car Show Parade

August 31st, 2020

Let’s have fun and help our seniors have fun too. Social distancing and masks are required (if you get out of car or near seniors) to protect our seniors. We appreciate your cooperation and participation.

Please bring your classic car or street rod to Lowe’s parking lot Sept 3rd at 1:15 PM to form a car parade.

The parade will then drive from Lowes to Somerset Retirement Home parking lot at 2025 Tibbetts Drive (near OBHway Dairy Queen and OBHway Fibre Credit Union) to entertain seniors at Somerset.

After entertaining seniors at Somerset, the parade will then drive to New Westside Terrace Retirement Home at 1200 17th Ave (behind 15th Ave Safeway) to entertain seniors at New Westside Terrace.

This activity and your participation are important to our seniors during normal times, and even more important during COVID times because in Summer 2020 our seniors aren’t getting their usual summer field-trips and outings.

Safe outdoor activities with social distancing (and masks required) are essential for keeping our senior’s quality of life as happy as possible during summer 2020 while also keeping them safe from COVID.

You’re making our seniors lives better. Thank you for your participation!

Water Color Painting

March 31st, 2020

Somerset residents enjoyed water color painting in our large dining room while practicing social distancing. This gave residents an enjoyable and safe activity.

We are doing our best to keep our residents busy. We are practicing social distancing while painting by number and listening to festive polka music! Denise (activities director) invites residents by special invitation for activities. This allows us to have fun while controlling group size, hand washing, social distancing and sanitizing after. This keeps our residents healthy in body and mind.

Entertainment and Live Music Continues at Somerset

March 26th, 2020

We’re continuing to have live music at Somerset while protecting our residents (no visitors or entertainers entering the building).

Our activities director regularly schedules local musicians to come to Somerset to perform and serenade residents from parking lot, sidewalks, and backyard.

Musicians serenade all parts of building (from outside) so residents can enjoy music in their apartments. There are multiple concerts (outside each part of building) so everyone can enjoy.

 

Our musician friend Dennis is a gifted singer and excellent guitarist! Dennis serenaded Somerset residents from our front covered entry way on a rainy day. Staff opened windows so residents could enjoy live music from their rooms. Dennis made it a fun and cheerful day for everyone. Residents, staff, and neighbors applauded him. Thank you Dennis!

 

Dennis also serenaded Somerset residents from our backyard gazebo. Residents enjoyed it from their rooms through open windows. Dennis made it a fun and cheerful day for everyone. Residents, staff, and neighbors applauded him. Thank you Dennis!

 

Our musician friend Blake traveled all around the outside of Somerset on a sunny day serenading our beloved residents. Staff opened windows to let in fresh air and music! Our neighbors in buildings next door enjoyed it too. Residents, staff, and neighbors applauded him. Thank you Blake!

We’ll have guest musicians serenading each week (or more often if possible). We’re working hard to keep our seniors and staff happy, entertained, and safe.

 
 
 

Toilet Paper Shortage and Donations

Last week we reached out to the local community to ask for assistance in collecting toilet paper. For all of you that have been to the store lately, imagine getting TP for 130 bottoms plus staff. The struggle is real. Supplies are all back ordered!

At a building with 65 residents plus staff, we go thru 13 to 14 large Costco packs a month times 2 care facilities. That is 28 packs of 48 double rolls. For the past 3 to 4 weeks, we send 3 or 4 staff members out daily to purchase 1 or two packs at a time, depending on the limit. Sometimes there is none to be had.

I asked a friend to put us on a prayer chain, to help us obtain TP. The phone has been ringing off the hook and people have been knocking on the front door to give what they can. We have been blessed by our community. We are grateful and proud of our neighbors.

Thank you for your outpouring of caring and generosity. It has allowed staff members to get back to providing care.
