One of our main activities for Valentine's Day this year was "The Not So Newlywed Game!" As a way of celebrating the loving marriages of our Liberty Ridge seniors, we wanted to test these couples on how well they have gotten to know each other throughout the years. The results were adorable and hilarious!

Thank you to everyone who helped with props and organizing the game so that it could be an enjoyable time for everyone involved! 😊

Dr. Dana Woody and her Liberty Nursing Students were part of a 14-week program that allowed students to spend time with our Liberty Ridge residents one on one. This program was used as a relationship driven tool that helps students get real time experience helping seniors on a weekly basis!

To commemorate the end of their program, they brought care packages or "Luminate Boxes" to show how much they love and care for the seniors they spent time with during these past weeks. To our surprise, they brought so many boxes that we even had enough to pass out around our other communities as well! Thank you Dr. Dana Woody and students for your hard work and hearts for nursing and senior care! πŸ™Œ πŸ™Œ
