What’s Happening at Katzman Family Center for Living in June

With the warm weather upon us and Covid cases on the decline, there are many reasons to celebrate over at KCL. In fact, anytime we get the opportunity to spend time outdoors, we make it happen! Whether it’s our weekly BBQ’s, musical concerts, and outside bingo, residents, staff and families enjoy basking in the sunshine.

Happy Birthday to Roslyn Buchholz, who recently celebrated her big day with colorful “designer” “balloons she received from her son Ronald. It was a fun and festive day for all.

Our Memory Care Unit received an amazing new interactive wall mount device. With just a touch, residents can explore a variety of stimulating experiences. We are always on the look-out for creative ways to enhance the environment for our memory care residents.

Resident Salima Belamar had a theory that paper flowers would put smiles on people faces –and she was right! Visitors and residents are now greeted by beautiful summer bouquets as they enter the lobby. They look so real you would never know they are made of paper. Thank you Salima! Also on the creative side, resident Lillian Katz, who had always wanted to learn how to knit, mastered the task in record time. Thanks to fellow resident Virginia Adrieni for giving her such excellent instructions and guidance.

Last, but not certainly not least, Jeff Cohen and his beautiful Golden Retriever Miles, stopped by again this month to visit with staff and residents alike. Resident Marsha Jackson had him eating out of her hand…quite literally. Miles loved the dog snacks Maria gave him!
