Behind the Scenes at Leonard Florence Center for Living

In celebration of National Skilled Nursing Care Week, which ran from May 8 through May 14, our building held a variety of fun activities, including raffles with prizes awarded each day, an on-site food truck, ice coffee bar, price wheel and cake social, and a delicious ice cream social.

“BIG Money Bingo” was back by popular demand on Mother’s Day, this time with cash prizes! Additionally, all our women residents received colorful carnations and beautifully decorated cupcakes to celebrate this special day.

Our weekly Music Monday concerts with the talented Jimmy Honohan are going strong! Residents gather to sing and dance to a variety of classic songs. Also on the horizon: a Smokin’ Joe concert as well as the highly requested return of Patty Vellucci on May 30. The Memorial Day concert will include a BBQ to officially kick-off the summer activities. We are expecting a huge turn-out.

Our restaurant trips are always a highlight of the month. In May, we’ll be eating at the acclaimed Marina at the Wharf. In terms of activities, we are debuting a new TV game show “Wheel Of Fortune.” Jimy Anguilar figured out how to simulate the game so residents can play exactly like it is played on TV. It promises to be a lively competition!

Also coming up in May, the beloved Golden Retrievers from “Golden Moments 4 Elders LLC” will be making a special appearance. Three beautiful golden retrievers will visit residents in their rooms. As many of our residents are dog lovers, this activity is bound to popular with residents and staff alike.

We have several birthdays this month — all the more reason to celebrate. Wishing the following residents a very Happy Birthday!
