Building Community Means Building Relationships
Springpoint Senior Living is committed to building community throughout the entire organization. We take pride in the relationships between our residents, our staff members and all the communities we serve.
For the last five years, Stonebridge at Montgomery has hosted a Valentine card craft event for its residents. This year, staff from Springpoint at Home helped make this tradition a reality. The Valentine cards created during this event were delivered to Assisted Living and Memory Care residents on campus. Stonebridge at Montgomery is one of 27 Springpoint Senior Living communities located throughout New Jersey and Delaware.
Cards for over 100 residents were created with a variety of creative and fun material. While each person created several masterpieces, stories were shared, and connections were made. Fellowship continued with a delicious lunch created by the Stonebridge at Montgomery kitchen. Residents are right, the food is delicious!
Some of our crafters hard at work
Kay is 95 years old and was a librarian by profession. Originally from Canada, her husband’s work brought them to the states. Kay and her family lived all over the US, settling wherever her husband’s job took them. She loves to create collages and takes advantage of the crafts that Stonebridge offers.
Christa who is 95, was born in Germany and came to live in the US when she was five. She taught kindergarten her entire career and loved crafting with the children. Christa traveled extensively across Europe to attend opera performances. She continues to play piano, sew and quilt, but her first love is bridge.
Miriam is an 80+ years old scientist who worked in this field when women in science was not the norm. She traveled all over the world from Australia to Russia as a biochemist and later as a science writer. During her career, Miriam taught at many medical schools including NYU, Columbia and Western Reserve.
Springpoint at Home staff was equally engaged in making joyful cards!
When people think of home care agencies, they typically picture an aid in a home. But home is where you live and that can be in an independent living or assisted living facility. If it’s your goal to stay at home for as long as possible, receiving in-home care wherever you live can boost your independence and allow you to make the most of every day.
“We love coming out to meet our clients. Not only does it help morale, but it’s important that the Springpoint at Home staff meet and get to know clients living in our facilities. Schedulers and other front-line staff are the folks our families talk to most often. When they visit a campus and interact with residents, it helps staff to feel connected to clients and clients to feel connected to staff. And visiting a campus orients them to it, which helps the schedulers guide our Certified Home Health Aid (CHHA) staff interactions and directions within each community.” Annette Murphy, Director of Home Care & Care Management Springpoint at Home
