The magic of the holidays was in full effect all month at Watercrest Macon Assisted Living and Memory Care in Macon, Georgia. Residents engaged in creative art workshops, sampled their favorite sweet treats, celebrated the eight days of Hannukah, and delighted in the twinkling of Christmas trees decking the halls of their luxury senior living community.
For the celebration of Hannukah, residents gathered for the lighting of the Menorah each night and Executive Chef Michael Falduti prepared potato latkes, matzo ball soup and specialty desserts.
In the days leading up to Christmas, residents created festive Christmas ornaments and enjoyed a showing of ‘How the Grinch Stole Christmas’ with a special visit from The Grinch himself. Even Santa and Mrs. Claus popped in with their ‘reindeer-in-training’ who enjoyed ear scratches and belly rubs.
Thanks to the participation of numerous community partners, Watercrest Macon was transformed into a winter wonderland with sparkling Christmas trees lighting the hallways throughout the community. The Festival of Trees boasted a variety of different themed trees for residents to judge. The first place ribbon was awarded to ‘Traditional Christmas’ by ProMedica Hospice, the second place award to ‘Blue Christmas’ by Hospice Care Options and the third place to ‘Ice Skaters’ by Home Instead.
“Our residents, family, friends and associates celebrated this holiday season as one large, extended family,” says Tammie Loveless, Resident Lifestyle Director at Watercrest Macon. “The magic and spirit of the season could be seen in the faces of our residents as they engaged in each of the unique events.”
Celebrating the holidays with traditional sights, sounds, and smells from twinkling Christmas trees to warmly-baked sugar cookies is all part of Watercrest Senior Living’s signature programming. Honoring treasured memories and beloved holidays instills joy, purpose, and personal connection amongst residents, associates, and family members.
