Spreading Christmas Cheer at ACH Community Care Center

Alliance, Ohio – Christmas came five days early at Alliance Community Hospital’s (ACH) Community Care Center (CCC).

On Friday, December 20th, CCC residents, patients and family members filled the dining room for the annual CCC Christmas Party! Musical entertainment was provided by John King, who performed covers of modern country songs, as residents and staff danced. While it was not the traditional Christmas party many would expect, the atmosphere was energized and fun for all in attendance. Holiday refreshments were prepared by the ACH Nutritional Services Department.

The festivities were made even more special when Santa Claus made a surprise guest appearance! He spread holiday cheer and good wishes for the New Year as he greeted each party-goer. All of the children were invited to share their Christmas wishes with Santa and had the opportunity to have their picture taken. Then Santa presented each child with some early Christmas presents.

But the children weren’t the only ones on Santa’s nice list this year! With help from the CCC staff, Santa handed out presents to each of the residents and patients.

“The staff members of the Community Care Center and Alliance Community Hospital are so kind and generous to our residents; they provide the majority of the presents Santa handed out,” said Lori Underwood, CCC Activity Director. “Every resident and patient at CCC received several gifts. This truly is the most wonderful time of the year!”

The CommunityCareCenter is a 68-bed, extended-care facility that provides a home-like atmosphere and a competent and caring staff to its patients and residents.
