The holiday season is a wonderful opportunity to spend quality time with friends and family while creating lasting memories, for children and aging parents alike. There are always the usual stresses that arise this time of year, like making sure gifts are bought, meals are sorted, and activities are planned to keep everyone happy. However, […]
Greetings, friends and family! It's been a fun and busy summer for us and, believe it or not, we're just getting started. We know sometimes it can be hard to keep up with all of the exciting things happening at Paradise Living Centers, so here are the highlights from the past few weeks, plus some of the events and projects we're looking forward to in the future:
On June 24, we had the pleasure of visiting Butterfly Wonderland, America's largest butterfly atrium. Our residents and volunteers loved it, and it was a wonderful way to cap off our "spring fling" events program!
July 3 Barbecue
To officially kick off the summer celebrations, we held an Independence Day barbecue on July 3. The traditional American-style barbecue was the perfect way to set the tone for the 4th and the coming months.
Music Program Inspired by Alive Inside
Alive Inside—a documentary about social worker Dan Cohen using music to heal and combat memory loss—has inspired us to try something similar at Paradise Living Centers. With help from volunteers and loved ones, we are building personalized playlists for each resident. If you have any music devices you aren't using that you would like to donate for this developing program, or any information that you think would be helpful, please do not hesitate to contact us! We are overjoyed about this project and will make sure to keep you updated as it unfolds.
We want to give a special thanks to our summer volunteers, Grace and Cole, for all of their help this summer. In addition, we want to thank Linda and the other family members who have helped build our new music program.
We have plans to visit the Musical Instrument Museum (MIM) in August and are excited for our residents to enjoy the more than 6,000 instruments the museum holds. Stay tuned for information on transportation and cost as we draw closer to the date.
On Sunday, September 13, we will host a family meal at 5:00 p.m. We hope everyone in town is able to join us!
We always like to recognize our staff and residents at Paradise Living Centers on their birthdays. We recently celebrated our caregiver Danielle's birthday, and we will celebrated three other birthdays in August – our resident’s Dorothy and Murry and our chef Luis.
