Waldron Nursing and Rehab Weekly News

Arkansas River Valley Business Directory

Waldron Nursing & Rehab residents are continuing to enjoy receiving the Christmas cards that keep arriving through the mail or delivered to the facility. New cards this week included cards from Everett Forrest, Bill & Renee Cox, Tony & Vanessa Reed, Judge Billy Roy Wilson from Little Rock. Waldron Middle School class. Residents really enjoyed the art work from the Middle School class.

Other exciting events was the arrival of Santa  on the Fire Truck, featuring Santa and a helper loaded down with candy canes which was given to each resident as Santa made the rounds.

Alex is keeping everyone busy this week with Christmas Crafts, pretty nails, bingo, Church with Mr. Stacks, Christmas art and the Memory program. Everyone gathered in the resident dining room to share some funny stories and memories and to light a candle in the memory of all who have passed this year. Being remembered was Mary (Ginger) Bieber, Thelma Lawson, Barbara Hay, Sam Giddens, James McDaniel, Vidya Patel, Dwight Poole, Clayton Burrows, Daisy Jacobs, Janis Hull, Sherry Goodner, Buck Lovett, Billie Qualls, Bennie Angel, Bobbie Jones, Jerry Richey, John Stefan, Cammie Canada, Louise Newberry, Lloyd Hattabaugh, Carol Osborne, Ramon Bujarski, Patti Brown, Rook James, Coy Hatch, Tom Langston and Fay Isham.

Our thoughts were with all of these families today as the candles were lit in their memory. Due to the COVID restrictions we were unable to have the big Memory activity again this year but rest assured our thoughts were with each family and each one of these Residents that left a memory in our lives as they were here.

“Thanks” goes out to all who have been bringing the Christmas gifts for their loved ones to help out with the resident party on the 23rd. We will also be adding the great bottles of lotion from Temple Baptist delivered for each resident. To Packsaddle Church and members for the Christmas donation. To Connie Maxell for the Christmas Cups for bingo.

Alex is still working on the Christmas photos. Some were mailed out this week to family members.

In closing our deepest sympathy goes out to the families of Tom Langston, Fay Isham and our nurse aid, Marley Pollard, in the loss of her mom, Kristy Shrum. Our thoughts will be with all of these in the many sad days ahead.
