Hickory Ridge Week!

September 2, 2022
We love any opportunity to throw a party and celebrate the staff and residents at Hickory Ridge! Why make it one day when you could make it a week? We turned Hickory Ridge Week up another notch and filled it with games, activities, crafts and more for our residents and staff to enjoy.

We started the week by having popsicles and a cornhole competition on Monday. On Tuesday, we turned Hickory Ridge into a carnival! This included a petting zoo, fresh popcorn, cotton candy, refreshments, a splash tank, cornhole and many other fun outdoor activities.

On Wednesday, our residents played Bingo and got into the fall mood with some of their favorite fall treats, such as apple cider and pumpkin rolls. We also handed out fruit cup parfaits as a sweet treat to our staff. Thursday brought our staff and residents a water balloon fight that ended with popsicles for our residents and a barbecue lunch for our staff!

We ended Hickory Ridge week on Friday with a fun activity of tie-dying pillowcases! Our residents loved this activity and seeing the results. Our staff was treated to pick out a candy bar, soda of their choice and a branded Foundations koozie!

Our celebration of Hickory Ridge Week might be over but our love for our residents and staff will never end. We want to thank all of the staff, residents and family members who helped make this week so special. Here at Hickory, we value and appreciate the residents. They give us a purpose, fill our daily lives with joy and fill our hearts with love. Hickory Ridge might just be a facility to you, but to us, it's our family.
