Nursing Center celebrating National Nursing Home Week
Tonganoxie Nursing Center will be celebrating National Nursing Home Week with activities today.
The public is invited to the event, which features activity booths — cake walk, Nerf gun bull’s eye, ice cream bars, ring toss and a sucker tree — starting at 2 p.m. at the center, 1010 East St. in Tonganoxie.
At 2:30 p.m., residents will get the chance to “dunk bucket” their favorite staff member.
At 3:30 p.m., the Geri Roll — a “race” that allows residents to travel around a race route with the help of staff members or family pushing them around the race route. A live band also is scheduled to start playing at that time.
A picnic concludes the day’s festivities. The meal is set to start at 4 p.m.
