What's Happening at Madrid Home Communities: 

 


Madrid Home Communities Donates to Wheels for the World 

The Madrid Home Communities recently donated old wheelchairs and wheelchair parts to Joni and Friends Wheels for the World group.

Wheels for the World collects wheelchairs and wheelchair parts and restores them to like new condition through prison based restoration centers around the United States. The wheelchairs are then sent to those that could greatly benefit from a new chair but don’t have the resources to get one.



What a GREAT evening! Madrid Home took a Men's group outing to Hickory Park for dinner and then to a program about a B-17 bomber that crashed near Maxwell, IA!


Friends of the Madrid Home Project Update

Every year we evaluate the condition of every campus. With hundreds of older adults served, our surroundings become worn and in need of updating. Residents, family, and/or sta suggest projects that are worthy of a Friends fundraiser. 100% of all money raised is applied to the identified project.

PROJECTS WE ARE WORKING ON:

• We plan to redecorate the Madrid Home’s dining room facilities
• Renovating and remodeling 3rd oor of the Madrid Home
• Purchase new dining room chairs for e Cedars Assisted Living in Madrid
• Apartment renovations and remolding at Ballard Creek Assisted Living in Huxley+

GET SIGNED UP TODAY AT ANY OF OUR FACILITIES OR MEMBER CHURCHES!

"You can't buy happiness, but you can buy ice cream and that's pretty much the same thing!" Yesterday was National Peach Ice Cream day! Thank you to Picket Fence Creamery for the great delicious ice cream!

These ladies from Ballard Creek took a little trip to McFarland Park for the first time today to learn about certain animals. They enjoyed the trip & we even had time to stop for ice cream afterwards which put more smiles on their faces.  


Ballard Creek residents took their Friday to a whole new level of fun! They got to experience such a neat way to cook. Many laughs with egg throwing, great conversations, & yummy food for lunch. For a few of the residents this was their first time here & they loved it!
