VERSAILLES — Versailles Health Care Center was among thousands of nursing facilities throughout the nation that celebrated National Nursing Home Week in May.

The celebration featured the theme “It’s a Small World with Big Heart.” Versailles Health Care Center had a week-long carnival and fun fair. Activities included musical entertainment by Dan Anderson, Crazy Craig’s Juggling Act, Stan the Magic Man Show, Caricatures by Shelly, a Big Top photo booth, carnival games and king- and queen-crowning to represent VHCC in the 65th annual Versailles Poultry Days parade. Cotton candy, popcorn, ice cream treats, lemonade shake-ups, fair fries, walking tacos, snow cones and many more treats were served in keeping with the fair-like atmosphere.

Staff had a door-decorating contest and residents voted the Housekeeping and Laundry Department the winner. The winner of the Random Acts of Big Heartedness was Karen Stanley from the Laundry Department.

Kristy Earick, CEO/administrator, said, “Every year we have fun celebrating National Nursing Home Week. It’s a great time to encourage everyone to interact with each other. This year’s theme was all about promoting VHCC as the place where the pursuit of health and happiness occurs and what a better way to do that than holding a week-long carnival and fun fair!”
