ASSISTED LIVING'S "BLOOM WHERE YOU ARE PLANTED" CLUB'S PROJECT TO SAVE THE BEES!

RESIDENT DIRECTED CARE

Our large nursing home and assisted living center can be compared to a neighborhood with eight homes (households). Each household has a living room, dining room, kitchen and resident bedrooms. You enter the household through a front door. The elders who live on the household dine there and participate in social events with the other elders and staff. Our households have consistent staffing and team leadership so elders and their families are part of decisions about their life and care.

Outside of the household are the areas shared by all; beauty shop, gathering room (main activities center), chapel, therapy gymnasium, reception area and Lucky’s Café. These are places where the whole neighborhood gathers. There is also a lot of visiting between the households. We love parties and competitions. Some examples are the annual Senior-Senior prom, Olympics, Chili cook-off and sporting events. 

Great things can start from humble beginnings

Amy Mullins and the Elders residing at Kugler Woods Assisted Living have started a club called “Bloom where you are planted” dedicated to making the world a better place.  No matter where a person is in life, he or she always has the ability to positively affect the surrounding world, whether it takes the form of community volunteer work, helping to preserve the environment, or simply helping take care of others who are in need.  The club, over the past couple of years, has been working on a "bee" project.

New diseases are causing the collapse of honey bee colonies worldwide, and the population is continuing to decrease. That directly affects humans, as bees help pollinate about 70 percent of the world's food supply. The club started their own backyard beehive and are currently devoted to the upkeep and proliferation of the hive. The club has raised enough money to run a second hive. Bees are just the beginning - their next goal is to help a local orphanage by making sure each child receives a gift for Christmas. Club members are blooming bright and strong, and are truly working to make a difference in the world. ‚Äč
