2014-QAPI-Accreditation-Seal1Winter Park Care & Rehab has received accreditation for 2014 as a skilled nursing facility actively performing Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement activities.

The accreditation, presented by independent accreditor Providigm, LLC, demonstrates that the facility is continually assessing residents’ quality of life with regard to concerns such as pain, dignity, respect for resident choice, and quality of care problems such as whether there are enough staff to meet resident needs, weight loss, infections, rehabilitation following acute injury or illness, and prevention of readmissions to hospital.

Here are just a few of the adjectives that a variety of cowboys, and cowgirls used to describe our Western themed Hall Of Fame last night: “warm, amazing, awesome, classy, unbelievable, beautiful, beautiful (that’s right they said it twice), touching, and the best ever”.

The decorated room was packed with 70+ folks making it the biggest crowd that we have had in years.  Emotions flowed like the Colorado River. During the induction ceremony every one was a “pardner” to all as the assembly corralled up, visited, hugged, laughed, and ate some of the best grub that Orlando has to offer. This took place for about an hour after the ceremony had ended.

When you look at a Hall Of Fame ceremony done with class, you need to look no further than our Administrator Jose, QOL Director Dollene, and Dietary Manager “Campfire Cookie” Evelyn, and too the many other volunteers and Stakeholders at WPCR who  bring the event  together.  In my five years of Hall of Fame this was the ”rootin, tootinest, wee-doggiest” best ever ceremony.

Winter Park Care & Rehab recently celebrated Holi, an ancient Hindu religious festival marking the arrival of spring. During the event, they smeared colors on each other, danced and ate Hindu treats.

This year, Holi took place March 17. It is primarily observed in India and Nepal, but is also prominently observed in Bangladesh and Pakistan, as well in countries with large Hindu populations all over the world.

Every year, thousands of Hindus participate in the festival, which has many purposes. First and foremost, it celebrates the beginning of the new season, spring. Originally, it was a festival that commemorated good harvests and the fertile land. Hindus believe it is a time of enjoying spring’s abundant colors and saying farewell to winter. It also has a religious purpose, commemorating events present in Hindu mythology. Although it is one of the least religiously significant of the Hindu holidays, it is probably one of the most fun and exhilarating ones and a  great many people celebrate it with great joy and excitement everywhere.

The main celebration is observed by people smearing colored powder on each other, as well as by throwing colored and scented water and perfume at each other. Bonfires are lit on the eve of the festival, near midnight, as the moon rises, after which prayers are said and praise is offered.

Third-graders from a local Catholic school interviewed residents about their lives yesterday. You will see in the photos a copy of the interview sheet each student used as they got to know our residents.

We had a room full of ‘reporters’ and their ‘subjects,’ including: 20 residents, 30 third graders, a Catholic priest, and about a dozen parents from the community. The group included the new chaplain in Jacksonville, Larry Glover, a chaplain with a great heart.

It was exciting to see the stone wall of age difference come tumbling down in our dining room, which was buzzing with chatter and laughter.

The body and God are tied together. God created the body and in health and excercise we rediscover the good feelings that come from our loving God. So pray and walk or swim, run and dance even clog and you will feel God pulsing through your body. Loving and enjoying the body is one sure fire way to worship the Living God.

This morning, I walked and then jogged a little and then prayed and asked God to help me all day. He did and how!  God is the only reliable power source for any human who wants to perform at his or her optimum.  Fortunately, He gives this power to anyone who asks.  Ask Him and feel the zoom in your day.

I will tell you mine and then show you know how to find yours.

First of all, here is mine. I was born to write and publish my ideas about how to be a mature and growing adult based on deep respect for myself and others and solidly anchored in the clarity that comes from meaningful meditation.  In short, I want to meditate and then write about how to be an adult in a world full of childishness.  I want to grow up and teach others how to do the same.

I nailed my calling down by reading “What Is Your What?” by Steve Olsher.

But there is more, I have digested from his book the work to be done to unveil the “amazing thing that you were born to do”.
Contact me and I will see that you get a copy of the digest.  What are you waiting for except to finally discover that thing for which you were born?
