Valentine’s Day is not just about romantic love. At Traditions of Hanover, residents indulged in a spa day to bring attention to the importance of self-care and self-love.
The spa day experience featured gourmet refreshments like mimosas, tea sandwiches, and chocolate-covered strawberries.
Speech-language pathology students from Moravian University also helped pamper residents by giving mini-manicures, a quintessential self-care activity.
“I enjoyed the whole experience,” resident Rosemarie Schadle said. “The students were so good, so nice.”
The welcomed visitors made meaningful connections with their newfound friends, helping make beaded bracelets and sugar scrubs, playing bingo, singing karaoke, and learning about their lives.
“This is an awesome activity to bring everyone together on Valentine’s Day to celebrate love and kindness and what it means to be happy,” said Katie Anne Dick, one of the speech-language pathology students.
Another student, Nicole Bull, added, “Today, for me, is a day for us to share love and memories through conversations and activities together.”
