On June 14, 2018 The Williamsport Home honored our Skilled Nursing Facility Volunteers with a picnic in our beautiful pavilion. The Williamsport Home depends on our volunteers for various functions. We have volunteers who help with transporting residents to and from the beauty shop, help with activities like Bingo, assist in our medical records department, visit with residents, deliver mail and assorted other ways of lending a helping hand. If you are interested in volunteering at The Williamsport Home please contact Dawnette Shobert, the Activities Director, at 570-323-8781.
Each Month Bonnie Horn sweeps into The Williamsport Home Apartments with boxes of decorations, wonderful home made desserts and a message of faith, hope and charity. She leads the monthly Hymn Sing at the Apartments for any residents that would care to come. They enjoy singing favorite hymns, fellowship, and a delicious sweet. There is a collection taken up for a chosen charity. Bonnie then reports on the kind of work the charity does. Part of living at The Williamsport Home Apartments is having a full, well rounded, healthy lifestyle. Enjoying the freedom to pursue a spiritual life on campus is one aspect of living at The Williamsport Home.
On Wednesday May 30th The Williamsport Home Apartment Residents took a bus trip to Lancaster. The trip included the Sight and Sound Presentation "Jesus" and lunch at Hershey Farms. We left at 7:00 AM and enjoyed a full day, returning at 6:30 PM! Our Bus was comfortable the Show was unforgetable (and very moving) and our lunch was delicious! We had an interesting surprise when Resident June Eck began looking at the program. There was a picture of her granddaughter! She is an artist and works on the beautiful sets for the show!
Great job to the Travel Committee, Kim Haller the Director of Independent Living and Bob Lamey, Executive Chef for planning and executing a fabulous trip!
Spring is lovely time of year on our campus. I was greeted this moring with three little gold finches chasing each other around outside my window. I took this picture of a tree swallow watching the world go by from the "doorway" of her home!
On May 14th The Williamsport Home & Apartments Resident, Al Brown, was honored by the American Legion for being a member for SEVENTY (70) Years! He joined the Legion in 1948. He was presented with his certificate of appreciation at the Apartment Assembly Meeting. Congratulations Al!
The week of May 13th to 19th was National Nursing Home Week. The theme this year was "Sharing our stories". We had several local companies come in and share the stories of how they got into business and how they grew. The Skilled Nursing Facility Residents enjoyed visits from the CrossCutters, Weis (they got to decorate their own cupcakes!), Aquarius Pools, Giants (a meat and cheese tasting!), Sander's and Echo Carpets. They also had Wine and Design come so a group could paint. Add in special snacks, and entertainment by Carl and Opal, Rick and Harv, and Alice Abbott, they had a great week!
Whichever specific health issue you're currently facing, we'll be more than glad to
give you a pre-appointment, free consultation on it!
