This year's National Nursing Home Week's theme was "Celebrating the Journey," and the residents and staff of Exceptional Living Center Brazil did just that.

From Mother's Day Tea on May 13, to Elvis (Bruce Borders) performing for the residents on May 16, the week was a great success and enjoyed by all.

Other activities the residents and staff were able to enjoy were a talent contest, balloon launch, sock hop and hula hoop contest.

The week concluded in Staff Appreciation Day on Friday, May 18, with a sack race, egg toss and that famous pie in the face.

Several businesses from the area donated pizza for the staff appreciation meal on Friday. Those businesses included Papa John's, Little Caesar's, Pizza Hut and Maurizio's.

Tumble Express, a local dance studio, also visited the facility and gave the residents and staff a wonderful showcase of tap dancing involving in a variety of age groups.

The residents continue to discuss the week's events.
