Classic Car Rides
It was the perfect day in Orem, Utah for some Classic Car Rides. It started with a wonderful afternoon at Our House Assisted Living of Orem. Local classic car owner Craig Hull and his great friends showed up to take our residents of Our House Assisted Living of Orem on a “ride down memory lane” in some beautiful vintage cars. Memories came flooding back of fun date nights with their sweethearts, cruising Main Street in Orem Utah and the days when a great car cost $2000. Thanks so much for a fabulous afternoon Craig.
We are always very lucky to have such wonderful people in our community that are willing to give such wonderful service to our residents. We love to give the residents chances to walk or ride down memory lane and to do some of those activities that they enjoyed in their youth.
Home cooking evokes memories of special events and family meals. Today we enjoyed hearing some of the memories that our residents shared from their childhood and family life. It is always such a pleasure to listen to our residents at Our House Assisted Living of Orem and their wonderful stories. We can and need to continue to learn from their wonderful experiences and lessons that they have learned and grown from.
We are very each day to be able to spend time in their presents. We can become a better person and friend by listening to their counsel and life lessons. It is a pleasure to serve the residents of Our House Assisted Living of Orem each and every day.
I ran across a great article that put it in to 5 good reasons to move your loved one into an assisted living. These are 5 things that Our House Assisted Living focus’ on each and every day. Our facilities in Orem, Ogden and Tremonton Utah love to serve and help the residents in our communities. Please come and see our administrators to find out what we can do to care for your loved one.
