These are some shots taken by Charlie Carroll at the Seacoast Nursing Home reception yesterday. This is a wonderful exhibit of 30 canvas giclee photos of local scenes donated by a number of Cape Ann photographers, and printed by Cape Ann Giclee, to be hung permanently in the Alzheimer’s Wing at Seacoast Nursing Home. Many of the residents and visitors came to the opening and really enjoyed the work.
For me, the highlight of the event was meeting Agnus MacQuade, 99 years young, who will turn 100 in January 2015. She was amazingly sharp and a pleasure to talk to. She was a student teacher at Lane School for a number of years and then taught at Salem State. She said she loves being at Seacoast Nursing Home.
Yesterday I wrote about how thankful I am for the care that my dad receives at Seacoast Nursing Home. Today Tommy Lattof forwards this from the Friends of Seacost-
The Friends of Seacoast monthly activities included taking, 12 residents on a rotating basis, in a special van with nursing staff to the Gloucester House for lunch last week. Wednesday of this week 12 more are going for a clam or lobster roll at the Seaport Grille.
On October 2 we had Baby Farm Animals come to two floors and entertain the residents.
On October 9 we did a dinner/show where we brought in specialty food from area restaurants and provide entertainment. This was extremely popular and everyone who attended had a great time.
All of the expense for these events are paid for by the Friends of Seacoast.
We are looking for people to bake cookies for our holiday fair on Saturday, December 1, 2012. Anyone wishing to help should contact Alison Cox at Seacoast Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. 978 283 0300 ext 102.
We meet every month on the second Tuesday from 6 PM to 7 PM. Anyone wishing to come and be part of this great group of volunteers is most welcome.
They are making some pretty special things happen at Seacoast Nursing and Rehabilitation Center for the residents.
