The Activity Department’s first themed event of 2018 was the classy
“Cocktail Party with B&B Entertainment.”
Lil’ Rexing’s Pony Express primarily provides pony rides for birthdays, either hosted on location at their Evansville farm or off. The farm has a picnic area, petting zoo, and playground. Recently, the company inherited a variety of exotic animals including a skunk, kinkajou, hedgehog, ferrets, and a family of chinchillas. Newburgh Healthcare was excited to kick off the new year by having Lil’ Rexing’s bring their exotic petting zoo to our facility!
December is a big month for Newburgh Healthcare and our residents! The activity calendar is packed with holiday entertainment from our regular performers, as well as special programs from community volunteers.
On November 9th, Heart to Heart Hospice collaborated with Newburgh Healthcare to host a special Veterans Day event for our residents. Whitney Kissel, Customer Service Liaison with Heart to Heart, hosted a private gathering for our Veterans where they viewed the virtual “Honor Everywhere” film. This film allowed our residents to experience the World War II Memorial as if they were there in person.
Our annual “Children’s Hallway Trick or Treat” was held on Saturday, October 28th. During this annual community event, children of our staff and the family members of our residents visit to “trick or treat” in the halls and at our resident’s doorways. Once again we had a wonderful turnout!
