In every family, there are traditions and Argent Court is no exception. Every year since our inception, we always host a family Thanksgiving event on the weekend prior to Thanksgiving. We move furniture around and set up the building like a restaurant of sorts. Each family has their own table and we serve the traditional turkey and dressing and all the trimmings. I am proud of the fact that we have volunteers from the community but more importantly, we have staff who volunteeer their time to make certain the residents have a great time hosting their families. We have a local piano player who serenades the residents and their guests during their meal. We pull out all the stops with linen tablecloths and wonderful decorations. This is the most important day of the year for our residents because they get to host their families in their home and show off their children and grandchildren to their fellow residents. It is a wonderful event!!!
This year, one of our staff in the kitchen commented that it is so much work to cook all the turkeys and the preparation in general but the look on the faces of the residents interacting with their families make the effort so worth it. This attitude is indicative of people who have the heart of a servant which is what we typically look for in our staff. I am so proud of the traditions we have built here at Argent Court and I look forward to many more years and traditions to come.
