Caroling Girl Scouts Visit Bishop Wicke Nursing Home!

News

Shelton, CT - The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all the residents to hear! Shelton’s Brownie Girl Scout Troop #60465 helped spread the holiday spirit this season by visiting residents at Bishop Wicke Health and Rehabilitation Center for a fun-filled day of caroling and gift giving. The Girl Scouts handed out handmade Christmas cards and jingle bell wands to the residents of Bishop Wicke to use during their caroling. Debra Samorajczyk, Administrator at Bishop Wicke, says, “To see the smiles on the residents’ faces is such a wonderful sight. This fun event brings both the younger and older generations together which is something we really love to see here.”

Residents and staff invited their families to come to the event and Santa even made an appearance at the five-star nursing home! This is the second year in a row these Girl Scouts have visited Bishop Wicke and when asked if they would like to come back next year, they all cheered, proclaiming they wanted to make their caroling an annual tradition. The staff and residents at Bishop Wicke look forward to carrying on this joyous holiday tradition!

Bishop Wicke offers short-term rehab and skilled nursing care, including specialized programs for surgical recovery, orthopedics, cardiac and respiratory rehab, heart failure and more. The facility is located on the Wesley Village Campus at 584 Long Hill Avenue in Shelton and is owned and operated by United Methodist Homes (UMH), a local, not-for-profit organization.
