To add a little fun and excitement to the long, cold days of winter, Activities Director Rita Nadzan organized the Ugliest Sweater Contest for the residents of Syracuse Home Wednesday Feb. 23.
Staff and residents were asked to dig into their closets to find their most hideous, outrageous sweaters and to wear them proudly.
A panel of residents and staff judged the sweaters. The winner in the resident category was Mary Ramsing and staff winner was Kelly O'Neill-Rossi, director of development and marketing at Syracuse Home. Winners received gift certificates to Kohl's.
The Activities Department at Syracuse Home offers a variety of exciting and fulfilling activities, projects, educational opportunities, live entertainment and outings for residents. The activities professionals work closely with residents, families and team members to provide individualized care based on resident's preferences, current functional and cognitive capabilities. The role of the activities department is to find what is unique in each individual.
"We work to provide opportunities for residents to reach goals or make new ones. We are committed to truly make this a home a place to live each moment in the way one chooses," Nadzan said. "Excitement, adventure, lifelong learning and a purposeful existence are not left at the door upon admission. The journey begins here."
