99% Vaccinated, Plymouth’s Trillium Woods Honors Health Care Heroes
After a difficult year, Trillium Woods senior living community in Plymouth is slowly getting back to normal, while also honoring its health care heroes.
Trillium Woods is celebrating National Health Center Week with a variety of activities. On Tuesday, residents and staff members spent the afternoon planting flowers for the community patios on the Plymouth campus.
An event like this couldn’t have taken place a year ago, but with 99 percent of the residents vaccinated from COVID-19, they’re taking advantage of the opportunity to bring people together to engage in fun activities in person
“Interaction and engagement in any atmosphere is necessary,” said Morgan Holien, an administrator at Trillium Woods. “But in senior living where people are living in a place that’s not the home they grew up in, having people get out, get engaged, be with their friends, have a meal together, come out and do an activity like this, it’s exactly why all of us went into working in long-term care to serve our residents. So it’s great to be outside together.”
This month, Trillium Woods has also put up a display honoring all of the health care workers in the building. The Health Care Heroes display has photos, biographies and special notes recognizing everyone’s hard work over the past year.
