Several residents at Cloverleaf Healthcare of Knightsville participated in a fashion show Wednesday to celebrate National Nursing Home Week (NNHW).

A total of 13 women and one man got "all fancied up" to walk the runway for the show.

The residents picked out their own outfits with staff and family members helping.

"Everyone has been so supportive," Activity Director Valerie McCullough said. "Cloverleaf is full of fashion."

The staff decorated the room with white and purple balloons and had background music playing during the show.

Steve Blaydes of Intrepid Home Healthcare emceed the event by explaining what each model was wearing such as blouses that Jennifer Lopez had once worn, Tiffany jewelry and dresses by Prada.

McCullough said she thought the fashion show was a success, especially being the first one they've ever had.

"It's self-esteem building," she said. "We want (the residents) to be as independent as possible."
