Delores' Story: Keeping Light Throughout the Pandemic

“Hello, this is Betty. I’ve been a resident here at Heritage Woods of Yorkville for over 8 ½ years. I came here because I wanted to live near my two daughters.
There are a lot of things that I like about living at Heritage Woods of Yorkville. I like having my meals prepared for me, having my laundry done, making good friends, and enjoying all the activities that we have. I even have a flower garden off the patio. The other residents also enjoy seeing the flowers too.
Other residents grew vegetable in their garden such as tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, and peppers. They enjoyed giving some of their vegetables to their friends.
Activities that I enjoy are musical activities such as singing with the Glee Club and singing the old hymns with others. There are also games such as beanbag baseball, card games and bingo and they are fun.
Last week some of us went on our bus to breakfast at Cracker Barrel. We enjoyed the good food there and seeing the countryside.
I joined the book club here and love to read. We like to discuss the latest book that we all have read. The Yorkville library will bring us books that we request and will pick them up after we have read them.
The staff here is very helpful. They bring me my medicines, clean my apartment, and help me with other needs. My daughters like the fact that I am safe here and have people who help me every day.
Heritage Woods of Yorkville is a good place to live. Maybe someday you’ll want to live here too. Come and see us!
This is Betty saying, bye for now!”

Delores' Story: Keeping Light Throughout the Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic has been difficult on everyone over this past year. There has been a great deal of frustrations, with all the restrictions that were put in place and it has become often that we all lose sight on enjoying the smallest of moments while trying to abide and adapt to all these new changes in our daily routines.

However, through the greyness one of our residents shines and strives to remind us that the best medicine is laughter. 91-year-old Delores has made it a mission through this long quarantine to make everyone laugh who enters her apartment.  You never know if she is going to tell you a joke or pull a prank on you!

Dolores states that she not only loves bringing joy to others and hearing them laugh, but to see their eyes light up from the happiness they experience from her fun tricks.

Some of our favorite pranks she has pulled on us, is the mouse with glowing eyes hiding in the cabinet, the big spider lurking around the corner, and even her giant cricket the hides amongst the dishes. You never know what you may be in store for when you enter her apartment, but the smile will cross your face before you even enter.

We want to thank all our residents for staying strong and positive through this difficult time. We are all able to get through it together and continue to have some laughs along the way because after all laughter is the best medicine.
