Casino trip hits the jackpot for Village Green residents
‘Everyone is asking when we can do this again’
A June 12 trip to Shorelines Casino in Belleville had such a positive impact on a group of Village Green residents and their families that many are still talking about the outing.
While at the casino, residents, families and staff members enjoyed lunch together and then spent time playing the slot machines. There were some winners, too, Karen Coulter, the Greater Napanee long-term care home’s life enrichment co-ordinator tells The OMNIway.
“They had such a great time,” Karen says. “Everyone is asking when we can do this again.”
Cheryl Whitehead, who has lived at Village Green for three years, says this was her first trip to the casino.
“It was a very good time – everybody enjoyed the food there and playing the machines,” Cheryl says. “We had a really good afternoon.”
About eight residents attended the outing. Karen played the role of tour guide, which went over well with residents, Cheryl says.
“And our tour guide was the best,” she chuckles.
