Residents at one long-term care facility are kicking off summer the right way.
Country House in Dickinson put on its third annual Slip N Slide event.
Staff there set up the fun right on the front lawn for residents, staff and families to all come out and enjoy the day outside.
Executive Director Tessa Johnson says it’s a fun way to get everyone together to join a warm summer day.
While many are hesitant at first, by the end of the day, they’re all for it.
“Their mental health is so important to us and getting outside and feeling that fresh air and just laughing is so important for them. It keeps their spirit alive and it just keeps them happy. Who doesn’t want to watch people go down a slip n slide? It makes anybody laugh,” explained Johnson.
Up to 20 residents decided to take their chances and went for it.
