July Fishing Trip

Some of our residents took a trip to Detroit Lakes to fish with the Let’s Go Fishing organization in July. The fish were biting and it was a perfect day to be out on the water!

Let’s Go Fishing is an amazing program which gives seniors, veterans, youth and the physically challenged the opportunity to go fishing. Please visit the Detroit Lakes area chapter’s website if you’d like more information or want to support this wonderful organization. We are very grateful our residents are given the chance to get out on the water, cruise the lake, and go fishing with this group every year.

Clay County Fair 2018

Valley Care and Rehab's residents had the opportunity to visit the Clay County Fair in July. Three of our residents sent entries to the fair and they all walked away with ribbons! We are very thankful to the board, staff, and volunteers of the Clay County Fair for their kindness in providing Valley Care and Rehab's residents with a private tour and a wonderful experience every year at the fair.

Valley Care and Rehab residents were given the VIP treatment with a private tour of the fairgrounds.

Nursing Home Week

May 14th – 19th is National Nursing Home Week!

Established by the American Health Care Association (AHCA) in 1967 and always beginning on Mother’s Day, National Nursing Home Week provides an opportunity for residents and their loved ones, staff, volunteers, and surrounding communities to recognize the role of skilled nursing care centers in caring for America’s seniors and individuals with disabilities.

This year’s theme is the “Spirit of America”. We are celebrating each day of Nursing Home Week with unique activities for our residents, and inviting the public to join us on Thursday, May 18th at 3:15 pm for a Dream Bar Social. We hope you will stop in for a visit!

Baby Love!

Twice a month volunteers from the community with little ones come in and share their babies with the residents for love and snuggles. Our residents and their guests LOVE to hold the babies and reminisce about their own little ones. The staff is great with assisting the residents that want to hold the babies but may need a little assistance.
