Fall Maintenance Prepares Campus for Winter

Vicki LamicaAs fall settles in, Perry Wellness Center staff members and peers are already preparing for the winter months. For example, many plants must be cut back for the winter, so that new spring growth will be promoted.

It’s been a banner season for selling roses at the market, including the popular Knock Out variety, but the remaining plants must now be cut back and readied for moving into a greenhouse for the winter.

Explained market manager Phyllis Smith, “It is critical that we carefully cut the spent blooms from our roses. We must begin now to allow the roses to sprout new leaves and buds.”

In the photo above, Vicki Lamica carefully works to refresh the remaining rose bushes at Rudy’s Happy Patch Market.

Annie Ruth Thomas Enjoys Challenges

Annie Ruth Thomas 2One of the most long-time members of the Perry Wellness Center family is Annie Ruth Thomas, who has worked with Pam and Stuart Perry for over ten years. Her cooking skills have benefitted the many peers and staff members who have passed through our doors.

“I have enjoyed food preparation for both the Tom Perry Wellness Center on the Plains Highway and Perry Wellness Center, here on Furlow Street,” Miss Annie Ruth reminisced. “When I began, there were only 17 peers. I cooked in a frying pan and stove oven. We have now grown to 17 clients.”

This faithful worker lives her life with obvious affection for all. At the center, she is known for her singing voice as much as her cooking, and she enjoys singing “Happy Birthday” on special days for peers and staff. Stuart Perry enjoys joining in with her for a last chorus “and many more.”

Miss Annie Ruth is quick to share her love for her job and appreciates the challenges that arise with such a large and diverse crowd. “We all must realize that bringing 71 people together six days a week is brave,” she noted. “Stuart is aware of the consistent stress of mental illness, but substance abuse is different. A peer may choose to drink or have some encounter with drugs when they leave Perry Wellness Center. When they return, it may take a while to recover and realize where they are.” But she has witnessed many recovery stories at the center and remains an optimist.

A particular challenge for Miss Annie Ruth was the change in food preparation brought about by the center’s adoption of the Whole Health Action Management (WHAM), with its emphasis on healthy eating as a part of total wellness. Over time, the kitchen staff has adapted to the needed changes, and Miss Annie Ruth has helped lead the way.

“We must all change,” she concluded. “Each day is different, but we must make each day good.”

Thank you, Annie Ruth Thomas, for helping make each day good at Perry Wellness Center.

Voices of Recovery

Recovery month 3Just a reminder that September is national Recovery Month. During the month, the public is asked to learn more about mental health and substance abuse problems. National Recovery Month also shares the message that recovery is possible from the effects of mental illness or addiction.

As a consumer-driven peer recovery program, Perry Wellness Center believes in the strength of individuals to recover, particularly when supported by caring communities of peers and loved ones.

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration is showcasing a YouTube series this month entitled “Voice of Recovery.” It spotlights seven young men and women who share their own personal stories of recovery. You can go to this link to watch the entire series.

Thank you for being part of the Perry Wellness Center caring community.

GSW Nursing Students Visit Campus

Nursing students 2Recently, Perry Wellness Center welcomed two special guests to its campus. Lauren Burge, from Americus, and Andrea Villalta, from Albany, are two seniors nursing students at Georgia Southwestern State University. They were here as part of their senior mental health experience. Lauren and Andrea join a long series of nursing students who have received orientation at PWC, an experience that is also an opportunity for the center to provide helpful information to future health care providers.

Cold Days, Warm Fires Ahead

Wood collectionEven though the recent ever-changing weather has not yet included a true cold snap, Perry Wellness Center is preparing for chilly days ahead.

On cold mornings, peers enjoy huddling around a roaring fire at the large fire pit. So Stuart Perry is leading the effort to collect sufficient firewood on campus to stoke the coming fires.

“I know the chill of winter is not yet upon us,” Stuart acknowledged. “But last week’s cooler temperatures were an indication that we must be ready. We’ll use this time to prepare for that day.”

Older and broken pallets are gathered and stacked in a unique fire box, designed by Jeff Williams. There they await nail removal and cutting down for use as fire starters. With the increased construction on campus, all salvageable boards ends and other reusable wood will be put to use during the colder months.

“I have to be sure that we don’t leave all of this wood by the pit,” Stuart said with a laugh. “It is tempting to use the wood for more than a fire starter. I want to save it in a suitable place.”

In the photo above, Malcolm Johnson, Tommy Green, and Carlton Tookes carefully disassemble broken pallets near the central fire pit.
