At the Garden View Home Plano we love to celebrate life. We look for reasons to celebrate. We celebrate our resident’s birthdays, we celebrate the holidays, we celebrate when the sun shines and when the skies open and supplies rain. We celebrate and thank God for each new day. Our neighbors celebrate with us by bringing home baked goodies from their kitchens and beautiful cut flowers from their gardens. One neighbor even brings her dog to visit from time to time. The residents love that.
Our licensed music therapist, Brett Koltuniak, visits our home on Friday afternoons. Our residents look forward to his visits. Several days before he is scheduled to come, the residents start asking “When is the music guy coming”. Brett can get the residents singing and playing instruments no matter what the day or week has been like. The residents love to celebrate their past and present through the music Brett brings.
We celebrate the classic movies like Hello Dolly, Oklahoma, The Sound of Music, Easter Parade and so many more. We gather around the large flat screen TV in the sun room and enjoy the movie with popcorn and punch.
Students from area schools come to the house to sing and play their instruments for the residents. We always have snacks to reward the students. Celebration and snacks go hand-in-hand at the Garden View Home Plano.
A group of high school girls come by several times a year and bring seasonal cookies and help the residents frost and decorate them. The best part of that is eating the cookies afterwards.
Life is short, especially when you are in your later years. At the Garden View Home Plano, we do not waste one minute. We celebrate life and we celebrate each other. Life is good at the Garden View Home Plano.
