Ice Cream Soda Party!!

Tuesday, 25 August 2015 by

One a hot sunny day, what could be better than an  ICE CREAM SODA PARTY!! Ledgemont Assisted Living residents enjoyed a cool treat last week on our patio. The residents were also entertained by the students from the Hellenic College in Brookline.

Everyone loves a kitten or a puppy! They make people smile. They are not only fun…they actually have shown to have some great benefits on the elderly.  Research has shown how beneficial pet therapy can be to the elderly. Regular visits with pets can have positive physical, emotional and mental benefits.

On June 15, 2015,  Springhouse Senior Living presented the award winning documentary film Gen Silent.  Two residents from Springhouse are featured in the documentary, Claire Barden and Lois Johnson.  In honor of Gay Pride Week, Springhouse shared the film with distinguished guests, residents, family members and friends.   Springhouse was honored to have Massachusetts House of Representative Liz Malia (11th Suffolk District) and Jullieanne Doherty, a representative from Mayor Walsh’s office in attendance for the film screening.

A Trip To Washington Tower

Wednesday, 20 May 2015 by

In May, the Independent Residents went on a trip to the Washington Tower which is the prominently situated structure in the middle of Mount Auburn Cemetery. It is used in the logo for the cemetery and is open for the public to walk up and get grand views of Boston. Though the tower itself is not named, there is a historical sign nearby and it is named as Washington Tower in the application for the cemetery to be listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

Harriet Fremont-Smith, a resident of Springhouse since 2013 and a mother of nine has published her first book! The beautiful children’s book titled, Molly’s Flowers was released in November of 2014. She created a character, Molly the cow, as a bedtime companion for her 9 children in the 1970’s to watch over their hearts and dreams. Molly continues to watch over her 30 grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren and now all the children of the world. Harriet is an inspiration to us all, demonstrating it’s never too late to fulfill a dream. Congratulations to Harriet and Molly the Cow!
