Senior Olympics

Senior Olympics

For the last four years, five of the Petersen Nursing Facilities have been competing in the Senior Olympics. We have Lebanon Care Center, Swansea Rehab, Collinsville Rehab, Robings Manor, and Willow Rose Rehab. These five homes have been competing in the football throw soccer kick, bowling, clothes pin drop, wheel chair race, and muffin pan drop. We have anywhere from 6-10 residents from each home and that many employees with volunteers helping out that day. The event is sponsored by donations and is completely free to all the residents, staff, and volunteers that day. We play bingo in the afternoon. Each resident that wins that category receives a medal either first, second, or third. Then the overall high point facility wins each a medal and trophy to take with them for the year to put on display in their facility. For the past four years every third Saturday of September we load up everything and head to Jerseyville American Legion and totally enjoy the day.
