It’s back to school time! So to celebrate the end of summer, Chesapeake Shores held its first Kid’s Day! Our staff was able to bring their children in for a back to school party with games, prizes, crafts, popcorn, snow cones, and a DJ with great party music. Residents, staff and children all enjoyed eating, dancing and having fun with one another.
We love having intergenerational events for our residents, as it is an opportunity for our residents and children to learn and bond. We are always looking for children or youth groups to come in and interact or do an activity with our residents.
If you are interested, please contact Kayla Hanson, QOL Director at (301) 863-7244 ext 123.

Ticks can transmit diseases such as Rocky Mountain spotted fever or Lyme Disease. During the hot summer months we need to avoid direct contact with ticks by avoiding wooded or bushy areas. If you are in the woods stay to the center of trails. Wear tick repellant. After you have been outside, shower as soon as you come inside. Conduct a full body tick check on yourself and your children. Be sure to look behind your knees, between your legs, around your waist, inside the belly button and your hair.
If you have been bite by a tick, or there is a possibility that you have been, and you develop fever, chills, aches and pains, or a rash, see your health care provider.
