Each resident is served three meals a day and between-meal snacks or beverages. All meals are planned to provide maximum potential nutritional value. The morning, noon and evening meals are available in the central dining room. Residents unable to go to the dining room are provided with personalized eating arrangements.
WRC employs two full-time activity therapists and an activity aide to coordinate recreational activities for residents. Some programs are geared specifically for entertainment, while others are planned to help support rehabilitation goals. We encourage all residents to participate as extensively as possible in activity programs and to continue with their personal hobbies or interests. Activities include bingo, coffee shop, outings to Medicine Lodge, and birthday celebrations. In the summer the activities department plans several picnics and fishing trips. We have made several trips to the Heart Mountain Relocation Center and the Veterans Memorial in Cody. We are active with local school sports, including football and basketball games. Each month we shop for the residents’ personal needs, allowing some choice of snacks and beverages.
Various religious activities are conducted by community spiritual leaders, including two weekly services in the WRC chapel. Several local church leaders regularly visit individual residents.
Personal Trust Accounts
As a service to residents, WRC offer a personal trust account service for each individual. The trust account can be established at the option of the new resident and/or family. If the resident chooses to take advantage of the trust account, the money can be deposited into this account in the name of the resident for personal use. This is an interest-bearing account.
WRC employs a full staff of laundry personnel. All linen and bedding items are washed on a routine basis. The personal washable clothing of each resident is routinely laundered.
Hair Care and Grooming
Each resident is encouraged to maintain a high standard of grooming. The nursing staff will provide basic hair care needs. A convenient, affordable in-house beauty/barber shop is available for specialized hair care on scheduled days.
