The staff at Alaris Health at Fountains North Campus recently brought the sights and sounds of an Atlantic City Casino to the residents of the facility. An exciting Casino Day was recently organized to celebrate May’s National Nursing Home Week.
“With the staff acting as dealers, residents enjoyed a day of gaming and friendly competition. We find creative ways to involve residents in our events and to encourage stimulating activities,” says Paul Cohen, Administrator for Alaris Health at Fountains-North Campus.
There were gaming table with four different games to enjoy, including Bingo, High/Low, Poker and Blackjack. In addition, the staff brought in two slot machines, which added the familiar sound of a casino machine to the event.
The residents were given $20.00 in paper money to begin, and then bet one dollar each time a new game started. If they won, residents received a chip and could later go and redeem the chips for prizes.
