Over seventy residents and family members enjoyed gifts and the songs of the season at the annual Christmas Celebration December 21st at the Aledo Rehabilitation and Health Care Center.

Attendees enjoyed a surprise visit from Santa Claus, as well as Hors D’oeuvres and music from Elvis. Many gifts from the staff and local community members were passed out by Santa.

“Part of the reason of the Christmas season is being able to bring joy to others, “said Shelley Carlson, Director of Nursing for the facility.  “We love any excuse to spend time with our residents and show them that they are truly family to us.”
