Joy In Moments

Sweden Valley Manor is celebrating life through a newly established program entitled Joy In Moments.

The Joy In Moments program has two components. First is to find Joy In ‘Daily’ Moments. Some of the things that bring each of us joy come in the ordinary, routine moments of our day. We want each resident and rehab patient to be able to continue those moments here at Sweden Valley Manor.

We ask them, “what brings Joy to you each and every day?” Since the inception of the program numerous daily Moments of Joy have been granted, such as hanging a hummingbird feeder outside one resident’s window, serving a daily cappuccino to another resident, and having an iron available so a resident is able to iron her own clothes.

The second part of Joy in Moments is to experience Joy In ‘A Once In A Lifetime Moment’. The residents and rehab patients are asked, “Do you have something that you’ve always wanted to do, but never found the right time do it?”

Our first Lifetime Moment was recently granted. Resident, Dorothy Akins had always wanted to go on a vacation in an RV. With the coordination of the Joy In Moments team, Dorothy’s family, and other Sweden Valley Employees, her wish was granted.

Dorothy Akins And Her Beautiful Smile
Dorothy’s radiant smile seemed to match that of the sun, when Karen Miller, 28 year employee, and her husband Warren, pulled their 31 foot RV up to the front doors of Sweden Valley Manor. Dorothy was assisted up the 4 steps into the RV and off she went to the Allegany River Campground to enjoy an evening of roasting hot dogs and enjoying s’mores over an open campfire.

This initiative is led by two STNA’s: Renee Ekleberry and Rebeccah Hoffman; Activity Director, Debbie McKee; and Human Resource Coordinator, Anne Davenport-Leete.

Sweden Valley Manor looks forward to granted more daily and lifetime Joy In Moments.

I wish when they sent in pictures that they would also send in the names. I don't live in Potter County any more but I like to keep up with people from back home where the wild dildines roam as Chuckie likes to say.
