Residents Calendar Contest

My certificate that I received recently.

A nice silver frame with "Guilty Dog" picture inside.

Front of the Calendar.

The month of May!

Robert Phillips, age 71, is a resident of Covenant Health & Rehab of Vicksburg in Vicksburg, Mississippi. Mr. Phillips has been at Covenant Health & Rehab for less than a year and started painting after his stroke as an outlet to express himself.  This picture is titled "Guilty Dog" because the had done something he should not have done and is looking at his mother with guilty eyes.  

Covenant Health & Rehab of Vicksburg is a 120 bed nursing home at 2850 Porters Chapel Road in Vicksburg, Mississippi.  For more information about the facility, call 601-638-9211.

The Mississippi Health Care Association (MHCA) and the Mississippi Health Care Foundation (MHCF) would like to extend a special thank you to all of the residents who shared their artwork for the 2014 calendar.  The artists featured in this calendar live in nursing homes all across the state, from the Gulf Coast to north Mississippi.  This is a small showcase of the talent of our nursing home residents, and we hope you enjoy their creativity.

Proceeds from the sale of this calendar benefit MHCF, a tax-exempt, non-profit organization started in late 2005 by the Board of MHCA.  The goal of MHCF is to improve the quality of life for residents of Mississippi nursing homes by fulfilling request for medical and personal needs and Make-a-Memory requests.  In addition, MHCF provides scholarships for further education of nursing home staff.

Thank you for buying a calendar to support MHCF, and we sincerely hope you enjoy the wonderful artwork featured in this year's calendar.
