SHAE DAY 2023! β˜€οΈπŸ’¦πŸ”«β˜€οΈ

We come together to remember Shae McFadden-Clark, an occupational therapist who worked with one of our residents and was a dear friend to all of us.

Being able to commemorate her each year and keep her essence alive is an honor.

To Shae’s wife Cathy, thank you dearly! We are SO GRATEFUL to be able to share these special moments with you. ❀️

Homemade pizzas for cooking class today!

Also a (random) side of salmon and cookies, for which we confused the cooking utensils. After the mix up, we concluded that if salmon tasted like chocolate chip cookies, we’d all eat a lot more salmon. And if chocolate chip cookies tasted like salmon, we’d eat far fewer cookies! πŸ˜‚
