The residents walked into a big surprise recently when they arrived for their Meal of the Month for July. The Meal of the Month is a special meal where the residents choose a theme and help decide on the menu. For July, they wanted a Beach Party. However, Program Director, Angie Garbaczewski had an idea of her own… she wanted to give them a high end beach party with Surf and Turf. The day’s menu simply read “Surprise Buffet”. When the residents lined up, they quickly realized what the surprise was:
Twice Baked Potatoes
The residents were thrilled and word quickly spread, reaching those residents who eat later. ‘It was great to see the look on their faces as we plated up their streak and lobster.” Says Garbaczewski, “…they couldn’t believe it.” One resident was thrilled and admitted that this was the first time she was able to try lobster. She loved it!! Once the meal was finished, the residents enjoyed a parfait topped with homemade “ocean blue” whipped cream and Swedish Fish candies. The majority of the residents made a point to compliment the chefs and kitchen staff on the delicious meal as they left.
Shortly after lunch, the residents returned to the dining room to watch Steve Lydell perform, along with Trisha. Lydell, decked out in a Hawaiian shirt and straw hat, created a show, full of beach and summer music. He also passed out the lyrics to all of the songs so that the residents could sing along. Trisha got some of the crowd up and dancing and even brought beach balls that the residents batted back and forth. At the end of the show, Life Enrichment Coordinator, Joyce Rinkevicius, raffled off a wonderful gift basket filled with items to make delicious ice cream treats. Everyone left with smiles on their faces and were still talking about the meal/show throughout the day.
