Fighting Alzheimer’s One Photo at a Time
You’re probably familiar with the popular internet and social media movement, “throwback Thursday,” or #TBT as it is commonly displayed in social media posts that are shared through the use of hashtags (#). The movement has been an outlet for people to share old photos and memories on social channels like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, and now the Alzheimer’s Association California Southland chapter is leveraging this behavior to fight Alzheimer’s disease in an exciting new way.
Tennyson Court Celebrates Veterans Day
On Tuesday November 11th, Tennyson Court opened its doors to the public in honor of Veteran’s Day. We had a free breakfast buffet with Scott Celani performing on guitar for a packed house of Tennyson Court families and residents. We were proud to honor all of our residents who served in the armed forces and be able to share a small snippet of their stories. We presented each resident with a certificate and took a photograph with them holding it. As a special guest, we were honored to host John Beard from Channel 2 News and recognize him for his services in the armed forces and his continued service to the Buffalo area...
Time to Make the Donuts
This week at Tennyson Court, our residents got to enjoy the fun treat of making donuts. It’s not every day that we get to smell the mouthwatering aromas of fresh donuts wafting through our building, so it was an enjoyable morning to say the least. Residents had a blast rolling out the dough, frying up the donuts and finishing them off with glaze, cinnamon sugar or powdered sugar. After our treats cooled off, we set them up on decorative platters and delivered them to each of the houses so residents could enjoy them with lunch. Nothing like making old-fashioned homemade donuts on a cool autumn morning!
Warming Up with a Chili Cook-off
This week our residents participated in the official Tennyson Court chili cook-off. What better way to warm up on a cool fall day than to stay inside and eat some delicious chili? The 6 contest entries we received included some awesome variations of the classic favorite like white cheddar chili and vegetarian 6-bean chili. Our residents were the lucky taste testers who got to try each contest entry and vote for their first, second and third place favorites. After a close vote, our esteemed winner was Nursing Scheduler/AL Supervisor Jodi Battistella with her “Jodi’s Original Chili.”
