Things are revving up in Chelsea now that many in-person activities have resumed for our residents. For example, the festive birthday party celebration with Joey Barilone and the tea party celebration with Patty Vellucci were immensely enjoyed by all. For the restaurant outings, residents dined at the popular Jimmy’s Steer House, Polcari’s and Su Chang’s. They indulged in a variety of delicious menu items.
Our residents are excited to welcome our new residents and are doing a tremendous job to make them feel right at home. They put together special welcome packages for residents moving in and take pride in helping them settle into our building. We even have two residents who play the piano when someone moves in while others sing along to the music! Such gestures truly make our new residents feel special by welcoming them into our assisted living family.
On March 17 we will hold our annual Purim party, which is always a festive occasion. Residents will celebrate this joyous holiday with a Megillah reading, traditional dessert favorites such as kreplach and hamantashen, music by Jimmy and Shellie and a spirited game of Rummikub. Purim is definitely one of the most beloved holidays!
Over at Florence & Chafetz, residents are very happy that the pandemic restrictions are being lifted. Clearly, they are keeping busy with Bingo, exercise, family feud, arts and crafts and bowling. And what better way to celebrate than with a lively concert with song master Jimmy Honohan? Staff and residents sang, danced, and clapped to the music. It was obvious from their smiles that a wonderful time was had by all.
