Nursing home residents in northern Kansas are beating the heat by slipping and sliding. 

Staff members at the Nicol Home in Glasco recently their front lawn into a Slip N Slide for seniors. KTKA reports it’s part of the nursing home’s mission to let residents live life on their own terms, even if that means pushing them to try something they haven’t done in decades.

The fun doesn’t stop when the summer ends. Residents make snow angels in the winter and participate in a cigar club year-round.

The Nicol Home also organized spa days, petting zoos and fireworks displays for residents to enjoy.
