Halloween was a festive affair at the Dry Harbor Nursing Home & Rehabilitation.
Staff and residents got into the spirit of things and among those seen celebrating were the Scarecrow from the Wizard of Oz, Batman and a Fedex Delivery person. There was also karaoke for those who were game enough.
The celebrations continued on with a Dry Harbor Thanksgiving luncheon. Family members enjoyed a full lunch including turkey, stuffing, broccoli, sweet potatoes and pumpkin pie while a saxophone player provided the entertainment.
Besides being provided with the ultimate in nursing care and rehabilitation, residents are taken to local events such as the baseball. 2017 wasn’t a memorable year for the New York Mets but for some of their devoted fans it was one they will never forget.
In late August, a group from Dry Harbor Nursing Home & Rehabilitation, went on a field trip and attended the NY Mets – Arizona Diamondbacks game. Located on Dry Harbor Road in Middle Village, it is just under four miles to Citi Field.
Since arriving to the neighborhood in the 1980s, Dry Harbor Nursing Home and Rehabilitation Center has become part an integral part of the community. For those who are in need of either short term rehab or long term care, residents of Middle Village and surrounding areas such as Forest Hills, Rego Park, Glendale and Ridgewood don’t have to travel far in order to find the high quality care they are looking for.
All were excited to make the trip and watch the 1986 World Champions play. Even those who aren’t big baseball fans were looking forward to experiencing the sights and sounds of a big league ballgame. To look after the residents, each of them was given their own person to watch over them and there was a healthy lunch that made sure they weren’t going to go hungry.
To mark the occasion, Mets T-shirt were handed out and Mr. Met popped by to visit the group. A very special day despite the home-team losing 3-2. There are plans to have more excursions such as this in 2018, a year which will hopefully be a far better one for the Mets.
