Ladies from the personal care residence of The Village at Utz Terrace recently made peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for the Hanover Council of Churches Provide-A-Lunch (PAL) program. While the ladies worked on the project, it brought back memories of preparing sandwiches for their families. They were thrilled to give back and feed their fellow neighbors.

Parades to Lift Spirits

Team members across our life plan communities help lift the spirits of residents with parades through their respective villages!



The Village at Shrewsbury hosted a parade at the community, providing an opportunity for team members to greet residents who they have missed seeing since this unprecedented health crisis began in early March. Residents clapped, waved flags, banged buckets with wooden spoons and held signs thanking staff. Team members laughed, honked their car horns, danced and waved. There is something special about a parade that lifts people’s spirits!
