Cruisin’ with Rush County Nursing Home!

The residents, staff and friends set sail this summer on a world wide “cruise”.  It all started in Margaretville, Florida as we set sail in our cruise ship the Leaky Teaky.  This imaginary trip was a total team effort as we took two weeks to sail to 12 Ports of Call.  Various persons signed on to plan a Port of Call destination, including staff members, therapy contractors, volunteers, and  family members.  The home was decorated appropriately in keeping with the cruise theme.  Learn more about our "Cruise event" and/or view our "Port of Call" photo gallery.
