The Holiday Season is upon us and at The Kentridge Senior Living, we are celebrating in a big way! Many of the residents who call our community home spent decades of their lives creating memorable holiday traditions with their families, and it is our goal to celebrate all sorts of traditions to make our residents feel at home. Moments like these are what make the holiday season extra special.
We kicked off the 45 Days of Holiday Cheer on Thanksgiving with a Gratitude Book that allowed residents and staff to share thoughts on what they are most grateful for. In the weeks since, we have gathered to light the candles of the Advent Wreath to reflect on its blessings, enjoyed a cozy hot cocoa happy hour, polished our shoes for St. Nicholas, and learned about the Yule Lads, among other things! Our December Story Corner featured the children’s book, “A World of Cookies for Santa” and cookie recipes from around the world.
While many of the days are now behind us, the holiday cheer will continue through the end of December and into the first week of January, allowing our residents to enjoy plenty of classic Holiday traditions as well as new and exciting moments created by Arrow Senior Living and our own community team. To round out the 45-day extravaganza, the culinary team will take us on a special daily dining experience to highlight dishes themed around the 12 Days of Christmas!
I was excited to decorate with all the residents and the staff as part of the 45 Days of Holiday Cheer. It was a chance for everyone to come together as one and create something amazing for the entire community in preparation for Christmas. I also looked forward to the Christmas Party. They are always a fun time for everyone. There was so much more to look forward to and I am thrilled to see the positive impact it had on everyone within the community.
My grandpa had a toy train that he would set up around the tree every year. It was always something the grandkids looked forward to the most. He always had to make sure it was running by the time we showed up or us grandkids would be giving him a hard time. It may have seemed like a small thing to him, but it meant everything to us.
We hope you have been following along on Facebook and Instagram as this joyous holiday adventure has unfolded, but even if you haven’t, it’s not too late to start!

May 21st is National Waitstaff Appreciation Day. The difference between an okay dining experience and one that is truly remarkable lies in the hands of your waiter or waitress. They are the unsung heroes in our restaurants, and without them, we wouldn’t be able to operate at the level you’ve come to expect. National Waitstaff Appreciation Day was created by Fred Sirieix. He wanted to celebrate all waitstaff, from […]
