Country Place Senior Living of Brewton hosted a special event for the residential mothers.
Much like the “Easter Window Peep,” the facility held earlier in the year, the staff and administration held a special time for all mothers to see loved ones on Sun. “We held the event because it was Mother’s Day and most of our residents are ladies,” said Teri Hunt, Activities Director.
Planning the event, Hunt decided to make the day as special as possible. “We sent out invitations to all the families. I did the food. We had snacks. Everybody would come and sit and visit with their moms,” she explained.
From sons and daughters to great grandchildren, all mothers living inside the facility enjoyed time with loved ones.
For the residents at the facility, it has been over 2 months since the special visitation restrictions were set in place. During this time, Hunt said that they have worked hard to keep residents busy, trying to bring good everyday. According to Hunt, this day was a real “treat,” for residents. “They had fun. They had daughters, grand kids, great grand kids. They had plenty of people coming,” she shared.
Maintaining the 6 ft. distance, residents were allowed to visit with loved ones through their windows. “We had a good bit come. Some were out in the windows, some on the porches,” said Hunt. Social distancing was practiced during the event and special memories were made by all. In the coming months, Hunt hopes to provide more opportunities to distantly socialize with loved ones again.
