CONCORD, MA— Residents at Concord Park Senior Living were in a tropical state of mind for the most recent stop on their Grab Your Passport Road Trip Around America! Staff organized a day of Hawaiian music, snacks, and decorations to transport residents to the islands.
Grab Your Passport! is an innovation from Senior Living Residences, management company for Concord Park. It is an educational program that gives residents the opportunity to connect to the world around them, interact with new cultures, and explore new places. Each month, the entire community virtually travels to a new destination through decorations, music, cuisine and educational programming. Highlights of the day include hands-on activities and sharing artifacts, family recipes, photos, and stories of past travels.
Concord Park hosted a Hawaiian luau to celebrate the beautiful state. Residents and staff looked snazzy in their shades, which were decorated with flamingos, palm trees and seashells to add to the oceanside atmosphere. They also posed with lei necklaces and a tropical backdrop. Residents cooled down with piña colada popsicles while Concord Park’s Director of Dining Experience, Misty Heldermon, demonstrated how to crack open a coconut. The addition of live singing and guitar made this an experience to remember.
