Kona Ice truck visits Life Care Center of Cape Girardeau

Cheryl Guetersloh, activity director, helps residents decide what they want to orderOn Aug. 14, residents at Life Care Center of Cape Girardeau, Missouri, got a special treat as the Kona Ice truck pulled into the entryway.

Residents and associates could order shaved ice with a variety of flavors. Some opted for traditional flavors like orange, grape and cherry, while others chose mango, birthday cake or (the residents’ favorite) a unique concoction called tiger’s blood. Even diabetic residents could enjoy the sugar-free options.

The truck also played the fun, kid-like songs that often herald the arrival of an ice cream truck. One resident said the activity took her back to when she was younger.

“Kona Ice was a one-of-a-kind experience for the residents,” said Cheryl Guetersloh, activity director, who arranged for the visit. “They loved the whole package: music, being outside and creating their own ice flavors.”
