The month of December has been a perpetual celebration of all things Christmas for the patients and residents of Westview Health Care Center. Beginning with a holiday craft bazaar on the 1st of December, the days that followed were coordinated by the facility’s Recreation Department to celebrate the splendor of Christmastime in fun and imaginative ways.
Residents and patients partook in card making, cookie decorating, jewelry making and games such as Christmas Jeopardy and Holiday Trivia. Numerous carolers visited the facility including members of the Danielson Elks, TMHS Modern Music Ensemble, Putnam Science Academy students, Woodstock Academy’s Tri-M Music Honor Society, Boy Scout Troop 27, as well as carolers from Crossway Church and Creation Church.
The month-filled festive activities culminated in joyous celebration on Friday, December 22, 2017 with the arrival of Santa and Mrs. Claus who helped dispense gifts to the residents and patients of Westview during their annual Christmas Party held in the facility’s Formal Dining Room.
“Our Recreation Department, under the direction of Louise Taylor, has been coordinating a myriad of activities and events during this joyous holiday season,” stated David T. Panteleakos, Administrator. “Not only do they make it look a lot like Christmas throughout the halls and rooms, but more importantly they made it feel like Christmas during the weeks leading up to Christmas day.”
