Spring Projects for our Special Volunteers

Our Cedar Village residents continue to make a difference throughout the greater Cincinnati community. Recently, they assembled 200 snack bags for St. Vincent de Paul clients. In early April, they will be making lunch to take to the local Ronald McDonald House to serve to the families who are staying there while their children are patients at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. This has become an annual event and the Cedar Village residents always enjoy visiting with the children and their families and making their lives a little better.

Your donation will help cover some of the costs of the supplies for these special spring projects.

Making Music Enriches Lives

Cedar Village residents’ lives are enriched every day. The Cedar Village Bell Choir under the direction of music therapist, Jude Jones, is a remarkable group of individuals. In December, they performed along with the Cedar Village choir in a holiday concert. As Jude points to each group of bell ringers, they proudly ring their bells and make beautiful music together. For this year’s concert, they each wore specially created Cedar Village blue Thanksgivukkah shirts. Some of the performers may suffer from dementia and may not be able to communicate verbally, but they can communicate through music. Your donation will help sustain this vital program.

Is it Safe to Drive?

As a part of our rehabilitation services that we provide at Cedar Village, our occupational therapists provide a vital service for older adults – helping them determine if they are capable of driving. For individuals who are receiving therapy services following hospitalization, we test them on their driving skills before they return home.

We provide a comprehensive two hour out of the car assessment to determine reaction time, visual acuity, physical functioning and cognition as it relates to safe driving.

Following this test, there is an “In car” Assessment which evaluates safety behind the wheel including starting and stopping, following directions, turning, parking, and highway driving.

Our goal is to ensure that patients receiving therapy services at Cedar Village will be able to operate a car safely. Often we help them come to the realization that they may need to drive with restrictions when they return home. Cedar Village has a therapy car for patients to practice getting in and out and loading the trunk with groceries and personal items.

As spring is arriving, progress is being made on our warm water Aquatic Therapy Center. It is scheduled to open in the summer and those individuals who have been deemed safe to drive will be able to return to Cedar Village for warm water therapy if their doctor prescribes it.
