Horsin’ Around at Surrey Place Care Center

It was a fun morning “horsin’ around” under the oaks with Mr. Lester and his dog, Jake, and Ms. Doris and her horse, Faith.

Jake welcomed lots of petting, and Faith accepted nose rubs and kisses. They are planning to return to Surrey Place Care Center in cooler weather for a barbecue, more time with the horses, and offer horse and carriage rides.

Spring Break Day at Surrey Place

Everyone should celebrate the joys of spring since winter is behind us. The warmer weather calls us outside, and it’s time to put away the winter wear, get out the capris and colorful tops, and fire up the grill.

The elders and staff enjoyed a day of hula lessons, volleyball, tropical music, and grilled hamburgers and hotdogs.
