Upcoming Blitz Week

September 7, 2017

For years, the nursing home has observed what we call "Blitz Week," a week to go over policies and procedures. This sounds like a lot of hard work and monotony.

But it's not. And the reason it's not is that a lot of people put in the effort to make this a fun week--a celebration of another year at the Home.

Each year, we choose a theme for the week. Last year the theme was "Keep on Rollin'," and the icon for the week was a wheel. We had special treats each day--wheel-decorated cookies, old cars parked out front, a parade of children through the dining room, and more.

This year, our theme for Blitz Week is Disney--with lessons gleaned from the book Lessons from the Mouse by Dennis Snow. 

We are going to start out the week with a children's Disney parade on Monday. Over Tuesday's lunch hour, we will have Disney trivia and lunchtime servers will have kazoos and wear Mickey ears. On Wednesday, we plan to host a Disney story hour with a snack, craft, and story for the young and the young at heart.

Thursday and Friday are meeting days for staff, where we enjoy a hot breakfast and learn valuable things for our workplace and safety procedures. We have a special guest from Disney World coming to speak to us.

Each day of Blitz week, we will be playing a Disney movie on one of our channels and one day, there will even be a special visit from Mary Poppins with her medicine and "spoonful of sugar." There will also be Disney songs played over the intercom several times daily.

Blitz Week is not just a boring re-hashing of material we've known since our first day on the job. Staff has put a lot of effort to make this coming week fun for both residents and staff. So if you come into the Home some time next week and hear a Disney song, feel free to sing along!
