the new stores coming soon to the neighborhood.


We thank you Mr. Johnson for taking the time to visit us at San Carlos Elms and look forward to your next visit in March.

We has such a fun time at our Valentine's party.
 We had sweets, music, friends and good laughs.
Take a look at some of the fun times we had.
 




Bud went to say hi to George. This was his first day back in a month and you should of heard the cheers he got when he strolled in the room! Welcome back George.

Sid was so excited when Conrad our entertainer serenaded her with her favorite song. Dolores was happy to be with her friend when the song was sung.

Kathleen and Gene had fun with the Valentine photo that was displayed at the front desk for all to have good time with.

Kathleen and Karen wanted to show their silly faces.

Brianna and Raquel went for the classic smile.

San Carlos Welcomes Brittan Acres for a Valentine's Visit

We had a very talented class from Brittan Acres come and spread Valentine cheer to our Residents this morning. Heidi Umber's class sang, recited tongue twisters, played the piano, show cased some hidden talents and put on two skits, but that wasn't all.
The Residents were excited to spend some one on one time with the students when they were done performing as they read a story to Residents individually.
When the students left they each received a Valentine bag full of goodies from The Elms.
Thank you to Heidi, her daughter Sarah, all the parents
 and of course the talented class for all the fun this morning.
You always do a FANTASTIC job!!!

San Carlos Elms has a Good Time Watching the Super Bowl

San Carlos Elms Residents had a great time watching Super Bowel 50 with their friends and amazing snacks provided by our Dietary staff.
If you asked the Residents who they wanted to see win the big game most answered, doesn't matter my team isn't in it. I just want to see a good game. I think they got what they wanted.
 Bronco's out-scored the Panther's in 24-10 great game.
