Girl Scout Troop Visit

The Girl Scout Troop visited San Carlos Elms this afternoon; they performed some songs and a couple of skits that our residents enjoyed. We had a good afternoon of laughter. Thank you Girl Scouts. Hope to see you back real soon!

Happy St. Patrick's Day from San Carlos Elms

The residents as well as the staff enjoyed the St. Patrick's Day party.

We had a great time during our party with story telling, music, drinks, laughter and traditional Irish Dancing.

Resident Poems


to two of our resident poets

Rosemary Bishop and Lou Mohler

I am happy to announce that CALA has decided to publish their poems in the next issue of CALA News & Views. It is a magazine directed for assisted living communities around the state of California. We look forward to seeing them in the magazine next month.

Congratulations Rosemary & Lou!!!

San Carlos Elms Poetry

Just Me

by resident: Lou Mohler

As I've grown older, my ears now ring.

My high soprano voice, no longer wants to sing.

My ring finger on my right hand is deformed,

My big toe sticks up like a piece of corn!

But my eyes can see! I can read it all!

Magazines, books, newspapers - so I have a ball!

I'm presently living in a home for old folks.

Some are lots of fun with smiles and jokes.

I'm thankful to be with those of my age,

Regardless of any deformities at this stage.

We can laugh and enjoy a life full of fun.

Plus, I'm lucky to be in the California sun!

Brownie Troop Visit

We enjoyed the visit that we had from the Brownie Troop today. They read books to our residents, handed out Girl Scout cookies and cards with jokes on them. We hope they come back soon.

Mardi Gras at San Carlos Elms

All the residents enjoyed wearing their mask and beads throughout the day, but some residents enjoyed getting their picture taken as a jester.

Arts & Crafts

 The San Carlos Library came in with a fun painting project for our residents.
