Contact Jordan Morrow Director of Wellness at (765) , October 2014 It was 22 years ago in September when I received my driver s license. It was an exciting time in my life because growing up in the country, I was somewhat isolated. I either played with my siblings or did work around the house. So while I do love my family, I was excited to enjoy the freedom that came with a license. But my new found freedom came at a price, and I realized that I needed a job to pay for gas. I became a server at Westminster Village in October of When I was 16, I never once thought that I would be at my first job for 22 years. The next thing I knew I was the Dining Director with a degree in Agriculture. It has been a privilege to be able to grow up at the Village and mature as a person and a professional. Not only did I find my first job at Westminster Village, but I also met my best friend and wife here as well, Angie Kerr. We have been married for over 12 years and have two beautiful children. The Village has been very good to my family, and twenty-two years later, I am still hard at it working for gas money. Rickey Kerr
2 2 Wellness Center Hours Monday Friday 8:30 a.m. 4:30 p.m. Wellness Nurse Kathy Coffman Phone Number (765) Wellness Director Jordan Morrow Melvin Anderson Aug. 17 Fran O Connor Aug. 28 Welc me New Residents Tom McNary Olive Pierce Pauline Skipp Shafer Music Therapy Comes to Westminster Village Music has power, especially for those with Alzheimer s disease or other types of dementia. Rhythmic and other well-rehearsed responses require little to no cognitive or mental processing; therefore, music can shift a mood, manage stress-induced agitation, stimulate positive interactions, facilitate cognitive function and coordinate motor movements. A person s ability to engage in music, particularly rhythm playing and singing, remains intact very late into the disease process. As dementia progresses, individuals typically lose their ability to share thoughts and gestures of affection with their loved ones; however, they retain their ability to move with the beat for a lot longer. In July, Stephen Wilson joined the Life Enrichment Team as a music therapist. Stephen has a bachelor s degree and master s degree in Music Therapy with an emphasis on the senior population. While Stephen is relatively new to the team, he has already made a lasting impression on several residents and staff members. Stephen has started music therapy groups in the Health Center and Assisted Living. He will start groups for independent living residents very soon. Some of the activities that residents can look forward to during these groups include singing, playing instruments and writing songs. Though some of these tasks may seem like they would be reserved for the most talented, Stephen s unique approach makes it easy for everyone to participate, regardless of their musical abilities. Please watch for additional musically-enriched opportunities coming your way soon; and look (and listen) for Stephen so you can welcome him to Westminster Village!

7 7 Volunteer Corner Born in Africa, Meg and John Hebblethwaite moved to the U.S. in 1976, Belgium in 1977, back to the U.S. in 1984 and to West Lafayette in They were introduced to Westminster in 2007 when John began attending, and eventually leading, WV s Bible Study before even moving here. The relationships he established greatly influenced their decision to move to Westminster in The Hebblethwaites cherish the friendships they have made since moving and say those relationships are the highlight of living here. Westminster has challenged them to look beyond themselves, which is a true reflection of their faith. Their faith fuels their involvement. John regularly visits the Health Center residents who attend the Bible study, to encourage and pray with them. He and Meg are both involved in the Bible Study, which John still leads. John serves as Vice-Chair for the Resident Council, and Meg started the resident choir, Village Voices, this past February. Meg shared that she has enjoyed tapping into the wealth of talent at Westminster. Hard at work at the 2013 Bazaar It s Bazaar Time Again!

8 October 2014 Assisted Living Activities Residents enjoy lunch at Sportsman s Inn on Lake Freeman September had crisp weather and was filled with fun activities in Assisted Living. We celebrated Active Aging Week toward the end of the month and what a celebration it was! There was a lot to keep us busy. We attempted to break the world record for the largest number of participants in a chair exercise class! Residents were inspired by the personal story of Josh Bleill who visited from the Colts. The chainsaw carving demonstration was captivating! Our residents also took time to participate in Cards for Troops. We are grateful for their service, just as we are grateful for the military service of many of our residents! During all of this busyness, we still found time to support everyday wellness by continuing Fit for Life, our daily exercise program. We are looking forward to a busy and active month ahead. Health Center Happenings Dottie McCaw and Don and Marcia Morehouse enjoy Magic Papaw Greetings from the Health Center! We hope you all had a spectacular September. As we head further into the fall months, we would like to share what has been happening in our lives. Our residents kept busy during Active Aging Week by participating in and attending such activities as Paintball Picasso and wood carving. Residents enjoyed Music Therapy. They also had a visit from the Purdue women s tennis team and the Purdue tuba players on Purdue Day. There was a van outing for a windmill tour with Bob and Joan Sandbloom; we thank them both for volunteering their time with us. Finally, we enjoyed laughter and curiosity with the magnificent magician, Magic Papaw. The Health Center wishes you all a wonderful October. The changing of the leaves on the trees, football games and Halloween festivities are sure to be wonderful.
