McKnight's Reports: "Prost! Nursing home celebrates Oktoberfest with residents"
Sherrye Dobrin, therapeutic coordinator for the Village at Waveny, New Canaan, CT, says the idea for the celebration evolved over the years, after an entertainer and friend of one employee visited the home to play the accordion in traditional garb.
“Now the party is bigger, the food is wonderful, and many staff members dress up,” she told McKnight’s. “Many of our residents grew up listening to polkas so they can relate to that style of music and reminisce. I think we all enjoyed the Chicken Dance!”
