Last week was National Nursing Home Week and our residents had something big planned for each of the days.

On Monday, we started the week with a Luau Bash, complete with frozen drinks and Limbo!

Tuesday, our staff put on a Murder Mystery play for the residents who then had to guess “whodunnit”?







Our garden has come a long way! With the help of our Dietary Director Sandy, this barren courtyard has grown full with flowers, fruits and vegetables!

What was once a place that never even received a second glance, is now a beautiful courtyard that residents, family and staff all enjoy. There is still work to be done, but the progress is amazing so far!

Chesapeake Shores is ready for spring! Our residents have been holding a bi-weekly gardening club with Dietary Director Sandy.

They look forward to this club as it is making a huge difference around the facility. Their current project is remodeling one of the courtyards with flowers, vegetables, trees and more.

More updates on the court yard will come soon!






Our residents got to make their own personal pizzas! Some interesting pizzas consisted of pepperoni, bacon, sausage, olives, pineapples, and of course, lots and lots of cheese!

It was a great hit, and the residents are looking forward to the next pizza cooking club!






On April 16th, we held our Signature Spring Break Day! Our residents had a picnic and played wiffle ball! It was such a gorgeous day, and everyone enjoyed being outside in the nice weather.

Staff, residents and family all joined in during the game, and it was a blast!
