Vital Care PT October 2017

OCTOBER 2017

As far back as I can remember, I have always celebrated Halloween. When I was young, my family would put costumes together and we would trick-or-treat in our neighborhood. We never got into Halloween much more than that, but my husband and I decided to take Halloween seriously when we got married.

At the clinic, we love to celebrate Halloween with our patients. The whole team comes to work with their costumes on. Our patients don’t usually dress up with us, but they love coming in to see what we’ve put together. Last year we all dressed up as Wizard of Oz characters and had a great time. At Vital Care, we are family friendly and we want our team to be able to spend quality time with their loved ones. For that reason we close early on Halloween. I can remember back in the day being a working mom and feeling pressure to run home from work, feed the kids dinner, and get them ready before the trick-or-treaters showed up at our house. I almost never beat the trick-or-treaters, and it was frustrating to feel like I was in a rush when I was supposed to be spending quality time with my kids. So, to avoid that whole commotion, we let our team go home early so they can enjoy a nice dinner and have time to dress up their kids before going out for the night. In other office news, we are very sorry to announce that Kacey will not be coming back to Vital Care Physical Therapy. Kacey’s passion has always been with pediatrics, and she was offered a job where she could pursue the career of her dreams. We will miss her very much and we wish her the best of luck.

After we had kids, we continued our Halloween tradition for a few years, but then we started to get busier, and then we moved houses, so the parties took a backseat to our hectic schedule. We haven’t thrown a Halloween party in years, but our friends and old neighbors always ask

Before we had kids, my husband and I loved to throw adult Halloween parties. We would get dressed up, decorate our house, and prepare yummy food and drinks. All of our friends and neighbors were invited to celebrate with us. We would go all-out for Halloween! After everyone had enough to eat and drink, we would hold a costume contest for the best dressed. It was fun to see everyone get decked out for the contest. At the end of the night, some of our friends would stay at our house and we would have a delicious breakfast in the morning.

“OUR PATIENTS DON’T USUALLY DRESS UP

when we are going to bring it back. Now that we are starting to settle into our new house, we might have to think about hosting a party next year. It would be great to bring back that tradition, and I think it would be a fun way to get to know our new neighbors a little better. This year, the kids are planning to dress up in one of our many costumes. When we moved, it reminded me of how many costumes we actually own; we have multiple giant plastic bins full of costumes! A good chunk of our garage is dedicated to Halloween, which is nice since we don’t have to buy new outfits every year. It’s easy to recycle and mix and match what we own, and it isn’t a big deal if we need to buy a new accessory. After the kids get dressed, we will go trick-or-treating in our old neighborhood with our former neighbors and their friends. WITH US, BUT THEY LOVE COMING IN TO SEEWHAT WE’VE PUT TOGETHER.”

Contest for past and present Vital Care PT patients only.
