One of my favorite activities for these cold winter months is playing table games. Nothing beats friendly competition with those you love.
Today, our residents will be gathering in the lobby for a variety of games-dominoes, checkers, Connect Four, Sorry, and many other games.
Recently, a few residents and a volunteer formed a Pinochle club that meets when we play table games.
There is a reason so many older people still enjoy games. Growing up, they didn't have the new toys that could be played alone or the iPhones that everyone seems to carry these days.
Back in the "good old days," all they had was each other and a rousing game of checkers or dominoes. They cherished those memories of being together and enjoying each other.
Here at the Home, we like to bring back those pleasant memories of comradeship while creating new memories with new friends.
