Volunteer Corps Grants Gifts to Village Manor


The Memorial Health System Volunteer Corps (MHSVC) recently purchased items for Village Manor in Abilene through the volunteers’ annual gifting program. Items purchased include a meat smoker, for the residents to enjoy smoked meats more often; a BoxMaster, to allow residents to remain active and get some exercise without having to leave the building. The BoxMaster offers several benefits such as increased range of motion, decreased pain, increased interest/desire to get up and go, and the overall mood of the residents was noticed by staff who have used it; six armed chairs for the main lobby area; and a wooden bookcase (not pictured), to be used in the “butterfly room” on the dementia unit to store books, games, puzzles, and other items specifically for dementia individuals.
