RAPTORS

Residents were treated in Congress Hall on Sunday to birds of prey, Raptor Show. This wonderful event is highly educational and allows residents to see up close these incredible birds. There were falcons, owls and eagles to name a few. Residents were able to watch them do a short flight in the room to set post. Many of these creatures are common to our region but to be able to see them feet away vs sitting off in the distance, is simply amazing.
The handlers discussed the birds favorite prey, eye sight abilities, speeds of flight, different purposes of feather lengths and their typical habitats. Thank you to The Wildlife Institute of Eastern NY, specifically Trish & Bernie who put on the presentation for the residents.

EASTER

We wish all of you a very Happy Easter. Residents at Prestwick Chase were treated to an outstanding buffet to celebrate the holiday. Fresh lobster tails, juicy ham, salmon and scalloped potatoes were just a few items to select from. There of course was wonderful carrot cake for dessert. It was fantastic to see family members coming in to visit residents in their homes. The smiles of family enjoying the fact that our community after many months has reached the point that they could return to the property made Easter all the more special. So many treats, fresh flowers being delivered in person, made the day. We look forward to continuing to be persistent in keeping our residents safe, healthy and filled with joy. Before you know it summer will be here and staff, family members and residents will be enjoying life as the way it was before the pandemic! Again from our hearts to yours, HAPPY EASTER.

PREVIEW OF SPRING

With a beautiful 65 degree sunny day, Prestwick Chase staff treated the residents to an outdoor spring fling get together. A 6ft sub was ordered from Roma’s which actually took two people to carry in. The massive sub was served to over 100 residents. Live music by Jeff Brisbin was played outdoors. With the resident population vaccinated, life is returning to normal. We are looking forward to a wonderful Spring and many more events to come. It was nice to see everyone relaxing, smiling, conversing and simply enjoying themselves in the sun and in the bar area. It has been a long tough season for many with the pandemic and winter. It looks though that brighter days are ahead of us and we will take them!! Thank you to Maintenance Department who set up the outdoor furniture, the wait staff and kitchen staff who made this party possible. Special big thank you too Amy our Activities Coordinator for pulling off some much needed fun in the sun. Stay tuned for future positive announcements regarding life at Prestwick Chase for our community!!
