Welcome to Funky Cards
I Feel the Love Project October 2012
Quality of life statement taken from the Surrey Place Care Center webite: "Our Quality of Life mission is to provide all our residents with multi-dimensional activities. This can mean designing programs to meet the needs for our short-term rehab residents, who are independent and cognitively intact. It also entails designing programs for our cognitively impaired residents or our bed bound residents. Just as in everyone’s lives, our needs, talents and interests are different.
We must try to individualize our activities to meet the needs or all in our facility. We also want to ensure group socialization for their benefit. It is important to acknowledge that we must strive to make the entire facility a joyful place for the staff. The whole mission will be met if the entire staff is fully engaged with the residents and everyone is aiming for the same goal… the well being or our residents, mind, body and spirit."
The I Feel the Love Project will be making Thanksgiving Cards during the month of October to be given to the residents of Surrey Place Care Center during November for Thanksgiving. We believe that delivering handcrafted cards at a major holiday such as Thanksgiving promotes the well being of the "mind, body, and spirit" of the residents at Surrey Place Care. I can't wait to make cards for the elderly this month knowing that it may be the only card that they receive for this holiday. Do you want to be a part of this experience? Please join us this month!
