It’s not difficult for our residents to get out to concerts and shows. It’s just a short stroll to our indoor Boardwalk, where we feature special events often. Family members may join us for these events; just let us know that you’re coming so that we can reserve a space.
Music plays an important part in all of our lives, which is why songs often bring back fond memories. We’re dedicated to providing our residents with the music that not only entertains them but is therapeutic in fostering cognitive connections that help their general well-being.
Our music program is sponsored in part by Sharon Harris-Zlotnick in memory of her parents, Ruth & Stan Harris, the Odessa F. and Henry D. Kahrs Charitable Trust, and the Harry L. Katz Memorial Foundation. The Schultz-Hill Foundation also has provided concerts and performances onsite at Seashore Gardens Living Center, and sponsored trips for our residents to see live concerts.
We have wonderful partnerships with local dance studios, high school theater groups, and volunteer performers who regularly entertain our residents. Sometimes, our residents take center stage, too – such as with the Summer Sizzler-Resident Talent Show – to sing, dance or tell jokes.
If it’s a holiday, you know there’s going to be a party at Seashore Gardens Living Center. Our recreation staff spends months on elaborate themes for New Year’s Eve, making festive decorations and dressing in costume to make it special. We host a summer carnival outside, complete with games and carnival treats. We gather together for Thanksgiving, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and more to celebrate family with special treats and programs. Even our activities that week might be changed to reflect a holiday twist.
It’s a festive week-long celebration for National Nursing Home Week in May and Assisted Living Week in September. We redecorate the Boardwalk, bring in special entertainment and host themed activities to celebrate our home.
The Jewish Lecture Series at Seashore Gardens Living Center is funded by the Harry L. Katz Memorial Trust Fund. The program is organized with help from Gail Rosenthal and Marcia Fielder of the Sara & Sam Schoffer Holocaust Resource Center at Stockton University. This program is open to the community.
