Meridian Health Care had a blast last week at the Wauconda Park District’s 8th annual Senior Summertime Fun on Bangs Lake. The event was a cookout for area seniors, as well as some great social events (such as a large community bingo game inside of the event tent). Not only did the seniors have a good time mingling with one another, they also got introduced to area resources that could help them with all of their living, housing and healthcare needs. Take a look below:

 

 

It’s so nice to get back into the swing of things. We missed participating in these types events over the past year and a half and were glad to attend, as not many were in-person for obvious reasons. Special shout-outs to the Wauconda Area Library, the Wauconda Woman’s Club, Randall Residence of McHenry, One Home Health, Catholic Charities, Azpira Place, Wauconda Healthcare & Rehabilitation Centre and Visiting Angels. Most of all, thank you to the Wauconda Park District for making this happen. The seniors (as well as the participating vendors) had a great time. You can come visit Meridian Health Care at the next local senior fair in Fox Lake. Details can be found here and are as follows:
