Part 2 of the wood canvas art project has begun!

If you haven't guessed it by now, we are making string art. The men hammered all the nails in place and created some awesome designs. Check back to see the final result! We can't wait to see how it turns out.

During our weekly men's group, Earl and Frank prepped wood canvases for an art project that they are getting ready to start. They cut, sanded, and stained everything by hand. Stay tuned for part 2 of the project!

Any guesses on what we will be creating?

We have some very talented residents who live here at Homestead. They love to paint and create! They showcased their talents with landscape watercolor paintings.

Ollie has hand-strung over 6,000 rosaries that she has donated to various churches, organizations, family members, and friends over the years. She loves to give back to the community and doesn't have plans on stopping anytime soon!

Who says Drag Queens don't belong at a Senior Community?! We had a blast celebrating Pride Month with Drag Queen Bingo.

Our residents LOVED @Krystalballdiva and @venusss_official. Our residents are already asking for them to come back.

The residents love to bake or anything cooking-related. They recently made homemade bread and garlic herb butter. They were thrilled at how it turned out and are already planning to make more loaves! Do you have any family recipes that we should try next?

Esther is a lover of flowers and anything related to gardening. We spotted her outside yesterday while she was giving our rose bushes some TLC!

Over the last few months, the ladies have made hundreds of pom-poms for a project that they had envisioned. They turned all of their pom-poms into colorful rugs for their apartments and couldn't be happier with how they turned out!

The staff at the Homestead was very helpful in explaining the many varying details about senior living options. The Homestead seemed to be a close knit community of caring staff and happy seniors. THe facilities were clean and pleasant. I would not hesitate to have my loved ones living there.

As a community-based medical service provider I've had several patients at The Homestead. I've felt comfortable from the moment I step into the facility to the moment I leave. Always a friendly, smiling face at the front desk and even in the other residents as I walk down the hall. All of my patients have felt comfortable and loved at The Homestead. One afternoon I kept my patient too long and a friend came looking for him making sure that he was alright! My patients have enjoyed the freedom of still being able to get out around town by using Homestead's transportation. The staff have welcomed my company with open arms and keep in great contact with us. I feel like we are all family and looking out for one another! Such a wonderful place!

An Incredible PlaceAfter living in the Washington DC area for more than sixty years, my Aunt moved to Washington, Mo. a major change. However with the wonderful setting,at Homestead and terrific staff, my Aunt soon adjusted and called it home. She was a resident of Homestead at Hickory View for six years..As time went on she needed assistance. Having a nursing staff on site enabled her to live out her life very contently. She did not have to move to a new environment for assistance. Every time we would drive up to Homestead - she would say "home again, home again."I will be forever grateful for the kindness and generosity of the Homestead and Cooperative Home Care folks...and so was my Aunt.
