The Davenport Lutheran Home Residents thoroughly enjoyed their annual Resident Family Christmas Party last night!! Families and friends came to join their loved ones, as the staff served a delicious meal for all to enjoy! The Lutheran Home Communities understand the importance of this time of year and are honored to provide our residents and their family a beautiful Christmas Party that they won’t soon forget!!
This week, the management team from the Vinton Lutheran Home, took turns, in groups of two, ringing the bell for the Salvation Army. It was cold outside, but it sure warmed our hearts to see the generosity of everyone in the community.
Yes, Christmas is coming, and we are looking forward to celebrating the true meaning of Christmas….but let us not forget about Thanksgiving and the importance this holiday carries with it, as well.
We all have so much to be thankful for at the Vinton and Davenport Lutheran Homes. We are thankful that we are able to provide a continuum of care to our residents and tenants, so that they, and their families do not have to worry about what is going to happen to them when they reach the next stage of the aging process. We provide every service, so that the transition may be smooth and seamless.
Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on things that we are thankful for, but also a time to be thankful that we are able to provide and do things for others.
Have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving!
From all of us at the Vinton and Davenport Lutheran Home Communities
