Summer is a wonderful time for children, students, and yes, even our golden kids – our infirmary residents.
Since the middle of May, ACE has been taking the infirmary residents for water therapy every Thursday to none other than the Galina Breeze Hotel swimming pool! For those of you who used to take part in this great afternoon of therapy, you may remember us going to Pagee Beach outside of Port Maria.
Between the sand, the seaweed and the bug bites, we made the decision to bring them to the crystal clear salt water pool on the hotel property. What a winning decision that was! We put plastic chairs in the shallow end, and voila – our residents begin kicking their feet, moving their arms and hitting the big beach balls back and forth. It is a fabulous time to be a kid again!
Several of our residents left the pool and picked up the game of ping pong, better known as table tennis here on the island. We are still in the lead on scores, but, hang on, things could change next month as the continued movement therapy is renewing both mind and balance.Tags: Infirmary, Jamaica, missions, outreach, st.
