New Year’s Eve At Applewood

Monday, January 04, 2016

The Applewood residents kicked out 2015 with a bang. The evening began with a scrumptious dinner in the Dining Room from 5 – 7 p.m. At 7:30 p.m. games began in and around the Meeting Room on the first floor. They participated in nerf basketball, nerf bowling, using the hallway as a lane, ping pong in the craft room and two Nintendo Wii set ups in the meeting room. Several residents tried bowling in the hallway but weren’t all that successful. They tried their hand at Wii golf, baseball, go kart racing and lawn darts, which they found quite difficult because the eye hand coordination required, is a bit beyond this crowd; so they switched to Wii bowling. This game was attractive to them because several people can play, much like in the local bowling alley and it’s easy to get a respectable score and they could challenge each other. At 9:30 p.m. the meeting room was reconfigured to show the movie which was “My Cousin Vinny”, a delightful comedy which everyone enjoyed thoroughly. You could hear laughter throughout the first floor area. After the movie, champagne and hors d’oeuvres were served in the Tavern, getting ready for the “Ball Drop” in New York City. At midnight, they all toasted the New Year, 2016 and kicked off Applewood’s 25th Anniversary Celebration.   Read more...

What is assisted living?

Assisted living is available at the following Loomis Communities:

Assisted living offers a middle ground between independent living and nursing care. Assisted living is a good choice for you if you do not require the extensive medical care provided in nursing care but are not able to manage living on your own. Staff is available to provide 24-hour comprehensive assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs), such as dressing, grooming, eating, mobility and hygiene. A variety of activities and social events, as well as transportation, cleaning, and laundry services, also are typical features of assisted living. The Loomis Communities provides assisted living as part of a comprehensive continuum of care, while many organizations only provide one level of assistance.

Our assisted living features private apartments that residents furnish with their own personal treasures, providing all the comforts of home. Our studio and one-bedroom apartments provide a place where residents who need a little help with the activities of daily living (ADLs) can truly enjoy life. Caregivers are available to help residents with activities such as dressing, bathing, grooming, and medication management. The intimate residential design of assisted living allows our staff to get to know and understand the needs and desires of residents and their families.
