ST. LOUIS – Unity Hospice of Greater St. Louis recently hosted a sock hop at The Riverview Care & Rehabilitation Center. Complete with a cotton candy maker and classic Buddy Holly tunes, Unity Hospice transported residents back to the 1950s.
In attendance were Unity Hospice staff, The Riverview residents and Unity Hospice patients. Some attendees danced the afternoon away, while others put socks on their hands and danced in their seats – giving an entirely new meaning to “sock hop.” Residents were flourished with 1950s themed foods, including cotton candy, corn dogs and ice cream sundaes.
The event was coordinated by Unity Hospice Bereavement Coordinator/Community Relations Representative Beverly Lee.
