LaHarpe Davier Health Care Center
We held our annual Rehab Reunion and Fall Family Night in September 2012. It was the perfect fall day to get together with family and friends. Every year we honor those residents that have came to our facility for rehabilitation and then was able to return home. Our Rehab Care program offers physical, occupational and speech therapies. We estimated around over 100 people that attended our enjoyable evening. We held several drawings that evening including a quilt raffle. We gave away 3 beautiful fall mums and a handmade quilt made by one of our very own nurses, Kelly Carnes. The quilt was raffled to raise money for our activity department. Congratulations to those that won the prizes. All of our family nights are open to family and friends of the community. Our entertainment for the evening was a Christian band from Dallas City named “Carban.” They perform in Dallas City and in surrounding areas. Some of our residents recognized a few of the performers that evening because they were from that area. Everyone enjoyed themselves as they always do when visiting at LaHarpe Davier Health Care Center. Our staff worked very hard throughout the day as they always do to make it extra special for our families. Our dietary department served a delicious meal that consisted of grilled burgers and brats, baked beans, pasta salad, rolls, and cake for dessert. A special thanks to Rodney Cratsenberg for saying the evening prayer before dinner was served. Our family members are very dedicated to their loved ones and are always willing to help out where they can. Janie Irish’s, resident, two daughters that joined us that evening stuck around afterwards to help clean up and arrange all the furniture back to where it was. They are two very kind women that we see often and we thank them for their hard work as well as everyone who was involved making this night special. Everyone will have to join us again in November for our annual Wreath Auction being held on November 15th!

Piper City Rehab & Living Center
It’s Beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Courtyard Estates of Piper City. The Christmas spirit came early for the tenants of Courtyard Estates this year, from shining tree lights and Santa’s helpers placing bright ornaments throughout their home. Pictured in front of the tree is Beryl Irwin, then from left is Shirley Keefe, Margaret Rock, Margie Savarese, Carolyn Holyoke, Aileen Kemnetz, and Jerry Rebholz. We want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!! God Bless you all!
Piper City Rehab & Living Center’s Veterans were blessed by local school children on Monday. Pictured standing around Gerry Haberkorn from left is Kaila Mansfield, Peyton Richie, and Nicole Arwood all of Piper City. They came and visited our Veterans and gave handmade gifts thanking them for their years of service. It’s comforting to to know that our children are honoring our Veterans and are aware of what our Great Country is about. God Bless our Veterans!!
