Today’s Front Line Hero is Mount Olivet Careview Home, which brought the Minnesota State Fair to its campus.
Mount Olivet provides a continuum of care for children and seniors through its day services and residential facilities. The facilities are located in Minneapolis, MN, and Mount Olivet Careview Home offers high quality personalized skilled nursing and long-term care. In addition to nursing care, residents at Mount Olivet Careview Home have access to therapeutic recreational programs, chaplaincy, social services, and culinary services to meet each individual’s needs. The staff are truly committed to fostering a loving and caring environment that serves the whole person.
The Minnesota State Fair is a highlight each year for many Minnesotans, and the Mount Olivet Careview Home residents typically enjoy an annual outing to the fair. The COVID-19 pandemic unfortunately meant the annual state fair outing was cancelled to protect residents from the virus, but that did not stop the Mount Olivet staff. They brought the state fair to the Mount Olivet campus! The residents loved the sidewalk entertainment, such as jugglers and performers on stilts, as well as visits from barnyard animals and state fair themed foods.
The Mount Olivet residents have more upcoming events to look forward to, including accordion players, Pumpkin Pie Day, and a Halloween costume contest. We can’t wait to see the pictures!
Thank you to Mount Olivet for your creativity, and ensuring that your residents have much to look forward to throughout the pandemic!
