Though we are social distancing, we are still celebrating birthdays and being social at Genesis Village! Take a look at what our residents have been up to.
Socially Distanced Community
Tonight a few of our residents were out taking a stroll through the GV garden and enjoying the view.
Each month, in true Genesis Village fashion, we load up our cart with delicious cupcakes and buzz through the halls singing 'Happy Birthday' as loud as we can to our amazing residents and staff who gained another beautiful year that month. Lots of laughter and silliness are usually a large part of this parade through the GV building. Happy Birthday to all of those who celebrate this month! You are loved.

Zoom continues to keep our residents and their families connected through the current circumstances. Another silver lining we found is that it has also opened a new opportunity for residents to see family that are even further away....like Russia and New Zealand!
Such amazing and precious moments!
We had the privilege of providing lunch that was delivered to over 100 Kingston of Perrysburg staff today! It was a true blessing for us to show a little extra kindness and love to a fellow senior community during this time
Below is a picture their team sent us along with an email that said:
"The pizza was fabulous and thank you for your thoughtfulness and kindness! GV Rocks!"
He has become our "not so little" GV mascot during quarantine. He likes to hangout in random spots throughout our building and you just never know where you will find him.
A HUGE thank you to PENTA for donating hanging baskets, potted plants and individual plants to Genesis Village today!!!
We would like to give special recognition to PENTA staff, Teri Swaisgood (Penta Horticulture/Landscape Management lab) and Rachel Bernhard (Penta Assistant Supervisor of Student Affairs), for making this happen.

Today some our staff hand delivered flowers to our GV residents for Mother's Day!
This past week was our GV Spirit Week!
It was filled with crazy hair, favorite baseball teams, wild & wacky mismatching, pajamas, and some Cinco de Mayo fun.

Our fellow health care workers need some extra kindness during these very challenging times. Thank you to our GV owners, Jim & Cheryl, for the idea to give back and to PizzAroma for collaborating with us to deliver delicious pizza and chef salads from Genesis Village for the staff at The Lakes of Monclova today!
We are stronger together.
As many of you know, we LOVE pets at Genesis Village and they are a huge part of our resident and staff's daily lives.
This past month, our GV staff submitted photos of their pets and our residents had to guess which pet belonged to each staff member. It was such a fun contest!
Beth, our GV resident, won the contest and Ashley, our GV staff member, had the most correct guesses matching her with the correct pets.

Even in the most challenging times, it is important to remember what we are thankful for.
Today was a blast celebrating the Genesis Village April Birthdays! We were able to serenade everyone outside their apartments, offices and in the lobby.

Our GV residents surprised the staff with this picture collage.
They wanted to recognize and honor our staff while showing their appreciation, love and thankfulness for everything that the whole team is doing.
We have the BEST residents!
So many of our GV residents have been chatting, catching up and laughing with their families via "Zoom at Genesis Village" during this quarantine.
All of the smiles and love during these special moments have made so many hearts happy.
Some of our awesome GV residents have spent their time making masks to donate to the Toledo Clinic Cancer Center along with others in need right now. Thank you ladies!
Our GV residents do an amazing job at encouraging and keeping all of us laughing.....even during these crazy times.
That includes making light of the toilet paper madness and encouraging us with notes like what Pat's says: "Under the circumstances you seem to be handling things fairly well!!!"
