Highlights of December 2013

During the month of December we had many volunteers from the community visiting Newburgh Healthcare to provide Christmas programs for our residents.

Various community organizations provided caroling in the halls, including Saint John’s Mother-to-Mother group, pictured above.  Other organizations handed out Christmas gifts and cards when visiting with our residents one-on-one and donated gifts for our annual Christmas party.

The facility also hosted two children’s holiday piano recitals, one of which were the students of piano instructor Dana Cook (pictured above).  Dana’s students not only played piano, but treated our resident to a violin performance as well (pictured below).

Another holiday program was conducted by the Evansville Lutheran School.  During part of this program students sang traditional carols to residents;  in the second half of the program, students gave an orchestral performance.  The Evansville Lutheran School has visited our facility for many years and always impresses us with their holiday programs.

We would like to thank all members of the community for visiting our residents during the holiday season.  We would also like to thank all of our staff who worked extra hard over the holidays getting residents to Christmas programs, assisting with holiday programs, and for preparing residents for their annual Christmas portraits.  With your help our residents had a very Merry Christmas!
