VHCC residents and patients enjoy Crazy Craig’s Juggling Act.
Versailles Health Care Center, a skilled nursing and rehabilitation center, was among thousands of nursing facilities throughout the nation that celebrated National Nursing Home Week, May 8th through the 14th. The celebration featured the theme “It’s a Small World with Big Heart”. This year’s theme underscored the bond between staff, residents and patients, and their families. Versailles Health Care Center held a week-long carnival and fun fair which created positive interactions between the residents and patients and their families and friends. Special activities included Musical Entertainment by Dan Anderson featuring songs “It’s a Small World After All” and “I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing”, Crazy Craig’s Juggling Act, Stan the Magic Man Show, Caricatures by Shelly, Big Top photo booth, carnival games, and king and queen crowning to represent VHCC in the 65th Annual Versailles Poultry Days Parade. Cotton candy, popcorn, ice cream treats, lemonade shake-ups, fair fries, walking tacos, snow cones, and many more treats were served in keeping with the fair-like atmosphere.

Staff held a door decorating contest and residents voted on the winner with the winner receiving a $50 gift. The door decorating contest winner was the Housekeeping and Laundry Department. Also, each day staff members were encouraged to stop by the office of choice for the day and nominate one of their co-workers to show their appreciation for someone’s kindnesses. At the end of the week, the staff member with the most nominations received a gift basket. The winner of the Random Acts of Big Heartedness was Karen Stanley from the Laundry Department.

Kristy Earick, CEO/Administrator at Versailles Health Care Center, said “Every year we have fun celebrating National Nursing Home Week. It’s a great time to encourage everyone to interact with each other. This year’s theme was all about promoting VHCC as the place where the pursuit of health and happiness occurs and what a better way to do that than holding a week-long carnival and fun fair!” Versailles Health Care Center offers short-term rehab services, outpatient therapy, and long-term care.
