Arbor Grove Village brings out the hippies

Greensburg — The halls were full of hippies Wednesday afternoon at Greensburg’s Arbor Grove Village as residents and staff celebrated Day three of National Nursing Home Week.

Arbor Grove Social Services Director Alicia Orozco told the Daily News that “Hippie Day” would followed by “‘80s Day” Thursday. The week will culminate Friday with a day-long Hawaiian celebration and a Luau.

Sporting a beaded purple headband, a flower-print blouse, a ruffled, body-length skirt and smiley-face jewelry, Orozco explained that events like Arbor Grove’s week-long celebration are crucial in helping residents feel at home in the facility.

“When people move here,” she said, “their entire lives change. They need events and social gatherings they can look forward to so they can maintain a sense of normalcy and happiness. We work really hard to help them feel at home; we try to be their family and their friends give them all the general emotional and physical support we can.”

New Arbor Grove Health Facility Administrator Jerrie Keck agreed, adding that an important part of accomplishing those goals includes involving the public.

To that end, Batesville radio station WRBI was on hand Wednesday afternoon, broadcasting live, helping advertise Arbor Grove’s upcoming public events.

According to Keck, those events include a Community Bingo Night from 6:15 to 7:15 p.m., May 21; Community Fun Day from 2 to 3 p.m., May 24; Family Fun Night from 6:15 to 7:15 p.m., May 28; a Senior Breakfast starting at 9 a.m., May 30; and the Annual “Wine on Wheels” wine tasting event from 2 to 4 p.m., June 8. All will be held at Arbor Grove Village, located at 1021 East Central Avenue, Greensburg.
