Veteran’s Day

What an honor and privilege to share this day with our Veterans here at OESHome. The program opened with the OES Home Choir singing and all attending recited the Pledge of Allegiance and singing the Star-Spangled Banner. The Armed Force Melody was played followed by TAPS and a Moment of Silence to reflect and remember. Our Medical Director Dr. Wilson MAJ, MC, USA and SRA Garcia presented all of our Veterans with pins and certificates honoring them and their service to our country. There were tears and smiles along with handshakes of appreciation and support. Dallas Waggle of Kindred-Hospice closed the program with God Bless America and a prayer.  Thank you Kindred-Hospice for sponsoring this event. more...

Our Hard Work was SO Worth it!

We found out our baking and cooking skills are absolutely amazing, from the flaky pie crust to the tender turkey our meal was a very delicious one. The first day we conquered pie making, mixing, rolling and filling 12 pie pans with ingredient for Pumpkin and Pecan pies. The second day we made all our side dishes, our menu consists of REAL mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, deviled eggs, green bean casserole, jello salad, turkey, dressing, ham and gravy of course! The third day we sat back and enjoyed our homemade feast and each other’s company.  We all gathered for a Prayer of Thanks and then we shared what we are thankful for, many said this meal and the friends they have made at OESHome. Most everyone finished everything on their plates and a few had seconds. All this was followed by the traditional Thanksgiving nap! more...
