A Year of WOW! Moments at Chateau Brickyard: August-DecemberFebruary 17, 2020 | Chateau Brickyard
We absolutely love planning WOW! Moments for residents! Be sure to stay on top of all the WOW! Moments from all our amazing senior living community by checking out the WOW! Moments section of our blog.
One of our incredible communities, Chateau Brickyard Senior Living, went all in with a very special WOW! Moment every month in 2019. Earlier this month, we posted about the moments from January to July, and now let’s dive into all that happened from August-December. What a lovely way to honor each resident and help them live their lives to the fullest!
August: Michelle Goes Fishing
Chateau Brickyard resident Michelle loves fishing! She has so much knowledge and so many tricks. The staff wanted to take her out fishing, and the whole team was surprised by how much fishing equipment Miss Michelle had! She caught a huge catfish that she later released into the water. The most interesting fishing trick she had was that she used a big peanut butter ball as bait. What fun!
September: Fundraiser for the Alzheimer’s Association
The September WOW! Moment wasn’t for a single resident, but was for the whole community at large. Chateau Brickyard raised money for the Alzheimer’s Association by hosting a Lip Sync Battle with a few other communities! They invited the Utah Jazz Dancer’s Director and the Association Regional Director to be the judges! To inspire even more enthusiasm for the event, the team got prizes donated by the Wendover Casinos and The Homestead Resort. The judges voted for the best three performances and best solo performance. Residents could also vote by buying bead necklaces for a dollar each, and each necklace was a vote for their best performer. The whole community raised about $600 for the cause. How generous!
October: Pumpkin Patch Trip for Anona!
Resident Anona loves to make her pumpkin pie from scratch, and always says it depends on picking the best pumpkin! The Chateau Brickyard team decided to take Anona to the Wheelers Farm Pumpkin Patch to pick out that perfect pumpkin. Anona got to ride the wagon ride and pick the best pumpkin. We made pumpkin pie from Anona’s recipe later in the month, and it was absolutely delicious!
November: Denise and the Preschoolers!
Resident Denise absolutely loves children and was a Teacher’s Assistance when she was younger. So, we visited the local pre-school with Denise. She had such a wonderful time, and we got to paint pumpkins with the kids. What a heartwarming visit!
December: Cheerleader for a Day!
The Utah Jazz Dancers came to make Christmas stockings for the residents. The team arranged with the dancer’s director for the girls to show the ladies some fun dance moves. Our adorable Chateau Brickyard resident Barbara was able to learn a few cheerleading moves; she was so excited about it!
We can’t wait to keep creating WOW! Moments for our residents. Be sure to follow us on social media for lots of wonderful community updates. What kind of activity would make YOUR day? Let us know!
