Tanglewood Group focuses on the Social Aspect of Care


Tanglewood-focusesThe residents and staff alike at Tanglewood’s facilities have been having an awful lot of fun lately! The activity-based facilities in Jamestown have been focused on immersing all of their residents in the many activities and they are all reaping the benefits of socialization and laughter from their experiences!

The most recent instance of this was evident at the annual Mardi Gras party held at Tanglewood Manor. The staff decided to spice things up this year by adding a Photobooth activity that was available to staff and residents. Photo booths have become popular attractions at weddings, parties and other social events. Participants use props such as hats, wigs and costumes to dress up and then have their photographs taken. The results can be quite entertaining.

As Terri Ingersoll, Tanglewood COO stated, “We feel that care must be fun and laughing is an element of the “plan of care” for our residents. This activity was a wonderful opportunity for our staff and residents to spend an enjoyable afternoon laughing together.

The company has been working the past several months to expand its Social Media presence, developing Facebook, Twitter, You Tube, Pinterest and WordPress blog accounts. They have also started “Tanglewood T-shirt” and “Traveling T-shirt” promotions whereby employees and friends can have their photos posted on the company’s social media sites while wearing T-shirts with the company’s logos. These activities have generated a lot of interest with both residents and staff, and have increased morale and productivity.

Tanglewood’s hope is that by becoming more visible to the community at large the general public can see the loving and friendly atmosphere that their resident’s and staff enjoy on a daily basis.
