Sunapee Cove Memory Support Grand Opening

Thursday, May 02, 2019

On April 25th, Sunapee Cove in Sunapee, NH celebrated the Grand Opening of its Memory Support neighborhood in great style, with good food and good humor (the favors were umbrellas for April showers and seeds for May flowers). The community’s eldest resident, Hazel Nilson at 110, assisted with the ceremonial ribbon cutting.

Everybody enjoyed viewing the cake which was too beautiful to cut into, but it was served to all the guests nonetheless. Yum!

It was a fun afternoon of teamwork, brainwork and exercise all rolled into one!

     

 


April at HallKeen!

Tuesday, April 30, 2019

April was a very busy month for many of our HallKeener's! There were some holidays and special events to be celebrated, and lots of fun to be had!

Our assisted living in Watertown hosted an activity for their "Brigham Bowlers". Bowling has been something our residents have been greatly enjoying during the cold months! 


On April 9th, Neptune Towers had a Taco Tuesday event sponsored by AT&T. AT&T provided the food and free giveaways. The resident had a great time, and good food. Who doesn't love tacos? 

The Summerfield Townhomes in East Hartford, CT hosted an egg hunt to celebrate easter. The kids had such a great time! They did crafts, had food, snacks, and popcorn. The kids truly enjoyed the egg hunt and all the candy!

 

Woodland Apartments in Coventry, RI held a spring clean up day! It was great to see both staff and residents take such pride in their community!
