Warrick Senior Olympics 2015

The 2015 “Indiana State Nursing Home & Assisted Living Games” took place on Wednesday, June 17th in Chandler, Indiana.  We had ten residents participate in this annual community event.  Participants from our facility included:  Sue Burke,  Mary White, Edna Keller, Amy Young, Maxine Porter, Patricia Woolen, Dorothy Amos, Patricia Hamilton, Helen Sparks, and Christine Alvey.

Our residents competed against other residents from various Warrick County health care facilities in events such as washers, ball toss, bean bag toss, fishing, ring toss, and wheelchair races.

The highlight of the Senior Games is always the wheelchair races!
