I feel fortunate as I had my family home for Christmas and we were able to spend time together. We enjoyed a wonderful Holiday Buffet in December prepared by the dietary department, led by Chef Jim Martini and Dietitian Jen Peake. I would like to thank the Dietary Department for the delicious food and the Activity Department led by Holly McBride and Cristina Dodson, for the beautiful decorations throughout the building. The Activity Department shines throughout the holiday season as they put the glitz and glamour throughout the facility.

It was nice to see so many families in attendance and I especially want to Thank our Staff for their hard work in making this event the success that it was. Well Done!

We try to encourage residents to inform us of menu selections that they would like to see on the menus. By attending the resident council meetings, you would be able to voice your likes and dislikes.

IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS PLEASE CONTACT AMBER OR MICHELLE IN THE SOCIAL SERVICE DEPARTMENT. THANK YOU Resident E-Mail As the holiday season comes to an end and you start to look at all of your photos, do not forget to share them with your loved ones. If you send pictures, please make sure that they are sent as an attachment so that we can change the size if need be and print them off. We print off the e-mails for the residents Monday thru Friday and the residents really enjoy this. It is important that you put the resident's name in the subject area because we have many moms and dads and grandmas and grandpas who live here. The e-mail address is [email protected] Thank you for sharing your pictures and I am sure your loved ones will enjoy them. Thanks for your cooperation. Cold Weather Just a reminder to families now that the snow and cold weather are here keep in mind your loved one’s closet. Please take a few moments to make sure that their clothing is appropriate for the cold weather. Many residents often like to dress in layers or enjoy having a sweater to put on or something they can throw over their shoulders. This would also be a good time to make sure that their clothing is labeled, especially with all the new clothes for Christmas. We also ask that if you see that a label has come off, let us know so we can put a new one on. Keep in mind if your loved one has a scheduled outing or a doctor’s appointment, they should have warm clothes, for example jackets and gloves. We thank you for taking the time to check on this and in helping us keep our residents warm during the cold months. The residents at Hoyt spent one afternoon wrapping gifts for the adopted family and had a blast. Staff also took time out of their day to help the residents prepare the gifts to make this a special holiday time for the families. The Laplant Family Gifts! Happy New Year To Everyone We would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year. May all of your resolutions come true. Here is a little something for you to ponder. I made some resolutions: I promise to be sweet, The kindest caring person that you will ever meet. I will not criticize or frown. I’ll wear a happy smile. When asked to do a favor, I will go the extra mile I’ll keep these resolutions Oh, no! I greatly fear These are the resolutions I didn’t keep last year. By Mabel Duch February Events The month of February is a special month for Hoyt. This month is not only filled with love and warm fuzzy thoughts, it is also the month that we crown our King and Queen. We will be posting information on the bulletin boards so keep an eye out. Take this opportunity to start thinking of who you feel would make a great King and Queen. Remember it has to be residents who live at Hoyt. Hoyt will also be having a big party during the month of February to announce the winners. We cannot wait to see who will be wearing the crowns this year.
