Seasonal traditions underway at Taylor Health Care Center

GRAFTON—Fall is here, and one local nursing home has been busy celebrating the season with annual traditions.

A few weeks ago, the residents and staff at Taylor Health Care Center participated in their annual tradition of making homemade apple butter.

Throughout the day, residents and staff took turns stirring the delicious fall treat.

Activities Director Joyce Moore shared that making homemade apple butter is a lot of work, but the residents and staff enjoy taking part in the tradition every year.

“We will be selling our homemade apple butter to help fund the activities department,” Moore explained.

The price for the yummy treat is $5 for a pint.

The Activities Department at Taylor Health Care Center shared that they need some assistance from the community to help make another annual tradition memorable for the residents and the community.

Every year, the center host Trick-or-Treat. This year, the event will take place on Thursday, October 31, from 5:00-6:00 p.m.

The event brings around 200 ghouls, goblins, witches, princesses and superheroes to the center every year, all excited to see what treats they will get.

“We are in need of candy for the residents to pass out,” commented Moore. “The residents really look forward and enjoy this activity every year.”

She shared they would like to have the donations by Friday, October 18, and that if individuals are unable to donate candy, a monetary donation would also be appreciated.

“We at Taylor Health Care enjoy taking care of the residents and want them to have a fun, enjoyable experience while living here. We just need a little assistance to make it happen,” expressed Moore.

Candy or monetary donations may be dropped off at the nursing home located at 2 Hospital Plaza. For more information about the activities, please call 304 265-0008.
