The 2nd Annual National Night Out is just around the corner. This year it will be Tuesday, August 2, 2016 from 6 – 8:30 pm. We invite everyone of all ages to come out and listen to some great music and enjoy a juicy hot dog and sweet cotton candy. There will be an assortment of things to do, such as, volleyball, jump house, yard-zee, dunk tank, and so much more. The Boise Police Department and Fire Department might make a special appearance as well as McGruff The Crime Fighting Dog.
We hope to make National Night Out 2016 the best year yet!
It was nice and warm for our Father’s Day BBQ. The residents enjoyed their choice of fire roasted cheeseburgers or hot dogs and the Dads got to sip down a cold beer or iced root beer. We even got our Executive Director April to run the grill. Laughter and joy spread across the Courtyard in appreciation for our wonderful Father’s.
The sun is out and the summer heat is in full swing. We hear everyone express the importance of wearing sunscreen when you are going to be outside. Protecting your skin from the harmful rays can reduce your risk of getting skin cancer and ageing wrinkles.
Here is a poster that helps you select the correct sunscreen and explains what you should look for on the bottle. We also suggest wearing a hat to block the sun from your face and neck. Sunscreen needs to be re-applied every 60- 80 minutes in the sun and waterproof/sweat-proof is highly recommended. If you have a bottle that is from a past summer, make sure you check the expiration date. Expired sunscreen is more harmful then it is beneficial.
Following these simple suggestions will help your skin stay healthy and forever young.
We are watching the 1984 dance classic FOOTLOOSE!
What is Footloose about?
Moving in from Chicago, newcomer Ren McCormack (Kevin Bacon) is in shock when he discovers the small Midwestern town he now calls home has made dancing and rock music illegal. As he struggles to fit in, Ren faces an uphill battle to change things. With the help of his new friend, Willard Hewitt (Christopher Penn), and defiant teen Ariel Moore (Lori Singer), he might loosen up this conservative town. But Ariel’s influential father, Reverend Shaw Moore (John Lithgow), stands in the way.
The movie and dancin’ starts Friday May 20th at 6:00 pm

While browsing through pictures on the internet for a project, I came across these funny pictures. I shared them with the residents here at Hillcrest, and I wanted to share them with everyone. They put a smile on our faces, and I hope they do the same for you. Enjoy.
We have 2 of the best nurses here at Hillcrest. Kathy is a Registered Nurse and Marcus is our LPN. They are both very dedicated to their patient care. They practice dignity and respect and really put their patients first. We love our nurses and thank them for all they do. Happy Nurses Week!
While we all think that as you get older you can’t do things that you used to do. Well this Grandma is proving us all wrong. She is dancing her heart out as if she was 25 again. Here at Hillcrest we have a young spirit amongst our residents. They enjoy getting up and dancing in front of a cheering crowd. The look on the dancers faces are as if they never left the dance floor 50 years ago. This Grandma goes to show us that age is just a number. Enjoy!
The wonderful, and very caring staff here at Hillcrest, recently participated in this years #LIVEFOR175 event.
What is #LIVEFOR175?
Boise is a great town that has an amazing radio DJ named KeKe Luv who stays awake for 175 hours during Child Abuse Awareness Month Every April. He takes the radio station to a very popular location here in town and sets up his tents to broadcast live while he is awake for the 175 hours. He then calls amungst the listeners to come out and ride stationary mountain bikes to power the radio station. This event is broadcasted nationally over social media to get the word out that it shouldn’t hurt to be a child, and to stop child abuse. The Hillcrest staff went out to do their part.
