Uplifting Our Residents with Team Spirit
Every Wednesday is “Team Spirit Day!” Employees are encouraged to join in creating smiles for the Residents by doing something different each week like wearing a certain color, a crazy hat, their favorite professional team apparel, spring pastels, a warm fuzzy and so on.
Along with the unique spin on what to wear for spirit day each week, staff prepares a different treat each week with a special little note card for each Resident. The treats are passed out to the Residents in their individual rooms by the Sisters and staff. Some treats so far have included: root beer floats, pie of choice (apple, cherry, strawberry rhubarb), brownie sundaes and cupcakes. After the Residents are served staff join in and enjoy a treat as well.
Through our daily interactions, Holy Family Residence has not lost our family spirit. In the spirit of Saint Jeanne Jugan, we are reminded daily that making the Resident’s Happy is what truly counts.
