Mountain View Nursing Home
Warm Springs tribal members
staying at Mountain View Nursing
home in Madras had a wonderful
time while preparing and sharing a
traditional dinner November 19,
according to nursing home activity
director Dyan Shaver. Many of the
tribal residents ate much more of
the traditonal meal, consisting of
salmon, roots and fry bread, than
they normally eat at other meals.
Susan Moses, in particular, "ate
four bowls of roots," says Shaver.
The roots were donated by a vis
itor to one of the residents and the
nursing home provided flour and
canned salmon. Shaver says she
would like to see more traditional
Indian meals prepared at the home.
Requests have been made in the
past for food donations of salmon
and other traditional foods but
those requests have not been ans
wered, explained Shaver. Hopefully,
she adds, that will change so the
Warm Springs people can enjoy
these meals more often.
Residents of the nursing home
have many activities available to
them during the day, says Shaver.
Some of the activities include devo
tions, old time music, crafts twice a
week, baking once a week. Pre
school children and babies visit the
nursing home and the "residents
love it," says Shaver. Buff Elemen
tary sixth grade readers visit twice
a month and Madras Elementary
second grade students have begun
visits. Monthly birthday parties
are held. During a council meeting
once a month, residents are able to
voice their opinions and concerns.
A beauty shop, tended by volun
teers, is open to residents several
times a month.
Season closed on big game
