Helen wished for a big party to celebrate her milestone birthday, but her daughter was unable to host such a large event. The Life Enrichment team got together and decided to make it happen! The event was held in the main dining room with many birthday decorations and a beautiful cake. Helen invited over 90 guests and about 70 of her friends and family were in attendance. It truly was a grand party! There was even a guest sign-in book for Helen to keep. She was smiling all night! Thanks to everyone who made this incredible dream possible.

Woodmont Health Campus Makes a Dream Come True!
(Boonville, IN) Mary S., a resident of Woodmont Health Campus, speaks often about how much she loves and misses animals. Tammy, Life Enrichment Associate, overheard Mary talking one day about how she would love to play with cats again, her favorite animal. Tammy contacted the Vanderburgh Humane Society (VHS) in Boonville, IN and set up a day for Mary to volunteer with the animals. Mary was ecstatic when she received the good news! Tammy asked Mary what could make the experience even better, and Mary said she was craving some “hot, fresh pizza!” Mary’s wish was granted. Tammy and Tracy, MDS, took Mary to the VHS for a morning of volunteering, and then out to lunch for fresh pizza. When Mary returned back to the campus, she began eagerly telling stories of the cats at the shelter, bringing many employees to tears. She was so happy to be reconnected with the community in a way that fills her with pure joy.
