Celebrate the month of October with us here at The Encore!
We are proud to announce that we have welcomed innovative recreational programming for our memory care residents from Tuesday – Friday. Please reach out to our Director of Recreation for more information today!
Events are subject to change. Please contact our Therapeutic Recreation Department for more information on October events!
Encore Takes a Trip to Germany
Residents will take a tour down the Rhine River and learn some fascinating family and cultural habits of our allies and friends in Germany. The German health care system will be reviewed, as well as some very important inventions. Residents will learn about the basic characteristics that the people of Germany value. Germans tend to be thrifty, sensible, and respect one another’s privacy, and they typically respect the structure and laws of society to an above-average degree. There is no place where this sense of ‘order’ is more apparent than in German business culture. They follow the rules and do not raise their voices at one another, as this is considered rude. Of course, Oktoberfest is enjoyed around the world now, but it began in Germany. Residents will be savoring some famous German foods on October 7th.
International Dessert Day
On October 14th, residents will enjoy celebrating International Dessert Day! We will be going to various bakeries and taste testing different countries’ famous desserts with a twist. Do you know what the most famous dessert is in Australia? Lamington.
Creative Pumpkin Carving
On October 29th, we will celebrate our very own “all things pumpkin and candy corn.” We will show off for the residents in costumes and carve creative pumpkins.
Fun awards and prizes await the winners and those who participate. The staff will also dress up for the residents’ enjoyment to add to the intrigue of Halloween. Residents will vote for the best pumpkin and costume and then enjoy a dance party on the 31st. Have a Happy Halloween with one of our greatest entertainers, Mr. Stone Silk.
Happy National Hispanic Month
We will celebrate throughout the month with various cultural foods and music from Latin Countries. We are truly a melting pot, with so many rich family traditions.
Encore goes Pink
On October 22nd, the staff and residents will be rewarded for wearing pink. We will have pink treats and share important information on National statistics and the advantages of early detection for Breast Cancer.
As we practice proper social distancing protocols in our community, we are proud to feature modified programming to continue providing vibrancy for our residents and employees. All events are subject to change. Please feel free to follow us on our Facebook page for continued updates as well as reaching out to us via Messenger.
