Residents were treated by the staff to complimentary Hurricane Mardi Gras drinks. The Hurricane is composed of two types of rum, lime juice, orange juice, passion fruit puree, grenadine and simple syrup. Staff went door to door with music, and drinks to hand out to all those who wanted to try. Beaded necklaces were also given out. Residents during dinner also had great New Orleans cuisines and king cakes to match the days festivities. It was a lot of fun with residents thoroughly enjoying their tropical midday drinks to celebrate the day.

Prestwick Chase continues implementation of innovative ways to maintain its COVID19 FREE status. These policies combined with technology have helped keep the resident population immune to date from the pandemic that has crippled so many other facilities in the local region.
One of many creative ideas was the construction of a visitor center. The center built by the staff has ultra violate lighting mounted in the ceiling. This special lighting helps in the sanitizing of the space after a 45 minute visitor meeting with loved ones. A maximum of 4 persons, six feet apart and with masks on allows family members to visit for a short time without actually entering into the residential areas of the community. Prestwick Chase realizes that physical health is of course extremely important to its population but so is the mental health of all its residents. The visitor center achieves that important key aspect of mental health by allowing a safe environment for residents to see their loved ones.
Another proactive measure taken by the Management was to implement the use of state of the art technology. Temperature readers were installed in hallways leading to main common public spaces as a way to ensure that residence are showing normal temperatures. Hand sanitizing stations are located through out the building and residents take full advantage of them daily.
Prestwick Chase Management and its community have been blessed greatly to be COVID19 FREE with almost a year passing now since the start of the pandemic. We all know there is no guarantees in life but what Prestwick Chase can attest to, is that every effort is being made to maintain a safe living environment for its residents. Our residents are not merely tenants enduring a pandemic, they are family.
We want to also take a moment to applaud YOU THEIR FAMILY MEMBERS AND SAY THANK YOU!! We know this pandemic has been a trying time on you as well. It is hard to miss birthdays, graduations, celebrations of every kind and simply the ability to be with your loved ones. It has been with all of your cooperation, understanding and perseverance that Prestwick Chases policies have helped keep your loved ones safe, even when they were not popular early on. We feel for those other facilities in the region who have sadly been heavily infected and suffered the loss of lives that we all witness on the news. This is exactly why we will not waiver in our proactive measures to keep the pandemic out of Prestwick Chase. We want to continue to be that beacon of hope and leadership that is blazing a trail of safety.  Prestwick Chase has often in social media been referred to as a cruise ship on land. With all that we offer for our community, we want you to know, this ship will continue to sail safely through turbulent times. We all will strive together….management, staff, residents and family members to maintain this COVID19 FREE journey here in our community.


Residents of Prestwick enjoyed a fantastic New Years Eve menu of cuisines from our culinary team. Prime Rib, Seafood Adriaticia, Duck A’L’Orange were just a few of the wonderful choices to name. For those with the craving for sweets, there was NY Style Bailey’s Cheesecake and Chocolate Lava Cake. The residents were dressed elegantly for the evenings gathering. They toasted and wished in a very Happy New Year. We all can agree 2021 will be filled with hope!


Residents of Prestwick were treated to a fantastic turkey day dinner. There was so much that the chefs made sure everyone went home with left overs. The tables had decorations and the Chef’s while carving the turkeys in front of the residents gave them a little history lesson on where the turkeys came from. There was much laughter and great conversations. We wanted them to feel as if it was a “Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” by setting up long tables. there was plenty of coffee and pies afterwards to select from. It truly was a wonderful day. Thank you to all the staff, chefs and residents who made this dinner on thanksgiving such a warm and wonderful celebration.
