McPeak’s Assisted Living Spreads Holiday Cheer with Week of Christmas-themed Celebrations
Local Assisted Living Facility Recognizes the Season with Christmas Crafts and Card Making, Christmas Tree Trimming, Sharing Christmas Stories and Annual Christmas Party
PATCHOGUE, NEW YORK — Ah, the holidays. A time where cheer is infectious, twinkling lights are around every corner and cookies are eaten in abundance. With a week of Christmas celebrations that included Christmas crafts and card-making, Christmas tree trimming and a Christmas party, each complete with visits from family, it’s no wonder the residents of McPeak’s Assisted Living are in high spirits.
The celebrations began with Christmas crafts on Monday, December 13, during which time the McPeak’s residents created ornaments for the home’s Christmas tree. On Wednesday, December 14, holiday music played while residents drank eggnog, enjoyed sweet treats and watched as each person hung up their hand-crafted ornament. McPeak’s Recreation Director, Liz Turner, even led a toast asking each person how they said ‘cheers’ in their family, Salud and L’Chaim were the most popular.
The following day, residents reminisced about days of old, sharing stories of Christmases past and singing their favorite Christmas carols. Later, they were joined by Pastor Bonfiglio for a special Christmas prayer session. Finally, on Friday, December 16, residents started their day by creating Christmas Cards for family and friends and rounded it out with the home’s Annual Christmas Party. Freddie Prinz performed classic Christmas songs on his keyboard throughout the event and Santa visited to deliver gifts to each of the residents.
