Life has changed significantly for all of us as a result of the Coronavirus. At Ardenwoods, we have risen to the challenge to engage our residents in activities that keep them safe, healthy, and in community, even from a social distance!
Heart Hunters Tour
Recently, staff decorated windows around campus with heart decorations—a phenomenon, called Heart Hunters, that’s been happening all over the US since quarantine began. People display hearts made out of paper, wrapping paper, cereal boxes, etc. on their windows, doors, or anywhere outside their home to lift the spirits of passersby.
At Ardenwoods, residents were given a map of the campus, marking where each of the heart displays were showing. Everyone could then vote for their favorite display. The winner? The waves and sun shining in the dining room windows!
Gardeners Enjoy Their Spring Blooms
Even with social distancing guidelines, resident gardeners are still able to work in their plots! Here are some incredible blossoms from our garden:
Steve Henry “Bubble Master” did a bubble show for the residents of Ardenwoods and Heather Glen last week before the stay-at-home order. Steve’s parents lived at the community and he has been performing bubble shows here since.
He does bubbles of all different sizes. The very large ones are definitely a favorite among the residents!
At Heather Glen, he did his show outside of the windows of the community, so residents could watch from the safety of their rooms. At Ardenwoods, residents kept a six foot distance from each other while watching the show from our front patio.
