Residents of Magnolia Estates made big plans for a day of fun to celebrate the Easter holiday with neighbors. The residents enjoyed an afternoon filled with activities that included Easter bag decorating for gathering eggs followed by a senior citizen -only Easter egg hunt, Bingo and a fish fry. Several residents commented on how much they enjoy the staff and all of the preparations that go into making sure there are fun social activities going on monthly.
Residents feel connected to staff and a sense of family amongst each other. “This place is my home and I never want to leave. My neighbors and the staff here are my family,” said one resident, a retired secretary as she prepared her Easter bag. “I’m enjoying my senior years better than I had ever imagined.”
