Supportive Day Program - A Social Experience
The 2016 Summer Olympics Done Our Way!
With all the excitement of the Summer Olympics, our Supportive Daycare Coordinator, Cristina Camarao thought, why should those athletes have all the fun? With that one thought, she brought the Olympics games from Rio to Swansea - Let the games begin! Our seniors and staff participated in Ladder Toss, Bean Bag Toss, the Javelin (pool noodle) Throw and (beach ball) Basketball. Team Canada took the Gold but to see all the results and the fun, you'll have to CLICK ON THIS LINK!
SDC Show and Tell
Our "Show and Tell" continues to be a hit! We continue to be amazed by all of the talented and gifted individuals at our center. Former participants showed off a beautiful fleece blanket while another brought in photos of spectacular frames she creates herself as a hobby. Another showed off a gorgeous navy blue sweater she was still in the process of making. Other individuals brought in family photos of adorable grandchildren and even one of himself when he served as Grand Marshall in the Swansea Parade. Staff members also brought in some of their treasured possessions including cultural figurines from Arizona, a bust of President John F. Kennedy from Washington, DC and a homemade wooden stool which cradled children and grandchildren. Another memorable moment was a Teddy Bear whose outer lining was crafted from a shirt once worn by a loved one. There were many laughs, a few tears and LOTS of fun. Today brought additional talents of knitted slippers, a personalized calendar, wood work masterpieces (bird houses etc.) and beautiful hand drawn and colored art work. We thank all who shared their memories and talents with us and hope you enjoy watching the slideshow below to see these talented individuals yourself.
