Root Beer Float Social Today at San Carlos Elms

It was a lovely afternoon of socializing with friends, reminiscing of root beer floats past, and listening to great music.
 
 Dorothy, Rosemary, Henry, and Pat enjoyed their time together.
 Henry & Joanne could not recall the last root beer float that tasted so good.
 Bernella said that it was so good she could not have just one.
Same with Ruth.
 
After our busy morning with all of our visitors it was a nice break in the day.

Round Table Event at San Carlos Elms

Steve Aber introduced the speaker John O'Hara, Garden Coach at the Round Table today.

John started by showing the group how plants are started by seeds. 
 He asked for a volunteer in the group to show the difference between just a little water and no water to a seed.

 
People came from care homes, communities, and those dealing with elders. It was a very educational morning. Thank you for all who participated. 
Everyone went home with a gardening shovel, seeds, and a bunttie.

San Carlos Elms Goes to the Ball Park

This was our fifth year going to see our San Francisco Giants! We had a GREAT time!!!
Taking a picture with both trophies, 
spending a day in the sun with a lot of fans, 
and winning cracker jacks tossed in the seats between innings. 
It might not have been the win we were hoping for at the end, but it was an afternoon with friends and GIANTS! Thanks to the helpful staff that went to the game the trip went smoothly.

Happy Birthday to a Resident in our Memory Care

Hannelore celebrated her 84th birthday yesterday with her daughter Heidi, family, friends and staff.
Heidi is reading her birthday card to her. 
Her family is reading some more cards to her too. 
When ever Heidi is around you always here "Mom", Heidi brought the perfect cake for Hannelore. 
Hannelore is making her wish... 
and with the help of her family, we hope it comes true!
 
Happy Birthday Hannelore!!!

Crafting at San Carlos Elms

Last month we had a great time making napkin holders, bracelets and necklaces, that the residents requested to have the beads back again. Thanks to a donation we have tons of beads to go around and we are having a great time with them.
 
Suzanne made her bracelet today if you can see it on her left hand, to match her necklace she made last month. 
This was John's first try and he had so much fun with the beads and listening to the music. 

Mabel had a great time finding just the right beads for her napkin holder, but she wants to make more. 
It was an enjoyable afternoon and I know that the beads will be out again soon.

Happy Holidays

San Carlos Elms had their Holiday Party. Residents, Families, and Staff had a fun filled day. We had live music, from Silver Bell Jazz ...
