Touchpoints at Bloomfield Celebrates Shark Week
August 16, 2019The staff and residents of Touchpoints at Bloomfield had an outstanding time dunking the “shark”, Administrator Jaime Faucher. Staff and residents participated in throwing the bean bags into the sharks mouth. If they hit the target Jaime the Shark was “dunked” with very cold water by Recreation Director Cindy Payne. The week included a visit from a shark expert who spoke on a shark’s day to day life, made shark teeth necklaces and of course watched the popular 1970’s film Jaws.
Three veterans who are current residents at Silver Springs Care Center in Meriden took part in an equine therapy program through Manes and Motions, a Therapeutic Riding Center operated by Hospital for Special Care in New Britain. According to the Manes website, “riding a horse gives you freedom and empowerment through movement. A horse can be a powerful motivator in reviewing or reinforcing many behavioral, physical, mental, social and emotional goals.”
