Life Care Centers of America
By Kari Gunning, activity director

On a very beautiful evening, June 4, 2020, Cañon Lodge Care Center participated in a parade, shared with other nursing homes in Cañon City, Colorado.

This was organized to honor our residents in the “Stay Safe, Stay Strong, Stay at Home, and We Miss You” parade. Families were invited to decorate their vehicles and parade past the nursing homes honking and waving to their loved ones. Staff also participated and decorated cars and facility vehicles.


A decorated vehicle drives by.

Cañon Lodge Care Center had 28 residents outside, socially distanced and wearing masks for their safety to enjoy the parade. It was an amazing turnout, and several cars drove by more than once to let their loved ones know they are loved and missed.

The residents enjoyed the attention and activities.


The facility bus was decorated too.

One resident, Cheryl Deneen, stated, “I was not going to go out but decided to go and was so glad I did. Everyone was honoring us and hollering for us, and I really enjoyed it.”
