Giddy up cowboys and cowgirls as we gallop through the wild wild west. This month the residents learned about Arches National Park in Moab, UT. We celebrated our trip out west with a visit with real cowboys, lasso lessons, and an authentic cowboy cookout. It was a good time enjoyed by all.

June is Alzheimer's and Brain Awareness

June is Alzheimer's and Brain Awareness

Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month is an annual campaign held in June to raise awareness about Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. Throughout the month, various organizations, caregivers, healthcare professionals, and individuals affected by Alzheimer’s come together to educate the public about the impact of the disease on individuals and families, as well as to promote understanding, support, and research efforts.
The campaign typically includes activities such as educational events, fundraising initiatives, support groups, and outreach programs aimed at increasing awareness of Alzheimer’s disease, its symptoms, risk factors, and available resources for those affected. Additionally, Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month serves as a reminder of the importance of early detection, diagnosis, and treatment of Alzheimer’s and other cognitive disorders.
The color purple is often associated with Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month, symbolizing hope, courage, and solidarity in the fight against the disease.

Resident Bee of the Month

Marion Worthen

Marion Was born and raised in Long Island, New York. A self-professed lover of large bodies of water and nature, Marion spent many summers in her family homes at the beach. She has led and continues to live a very full and rich life. Marion was married and from that union they were blessed with two children. Nowadays you can find Marion tending to the plants and flowers on the terrace, getting involved in crafts and other resident activities, or relaxing out front enjoying the weather and the company of her fellow friends and neighbors at Legacy Reserve. We are grateful for Marion’s kind and dutiful spirit, and we are proud to call her our resident of the month. 

Water Aerobics by Milton Hirsh

Water Aerobics by Milton Hirsh

On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays
Water Aerobics makes the spry days.
For thirty minutes we talk and splash
Then “rush” to our towels with an old folks dash.
We don’t really know if it does any good,
but I guess we would really like to believe it could.
