This is What ‘We Believe’!

At Presbyterian Senior Care, we have the motto that aging is something to embrace, and our residents consistently prove why that is so important!

We received an overwhelming amount of support and positivity after highlighting stories of residents at Presbyterian Village at North Church, so we decided to do something similar for Lockport Presbyterian Home!

Stories are worth telling, and we felt it only right to tell the story of what we believe in.  To do this, some of our lovely residents and staff took part in this very special video to tell what it is that we, as a community, believe in.

Our beliefs include everything from prayer, enjoying our gardens, to ending every day with a smile!

Watch our superstar residents and staff to hear all of what we believe in…

We would like to thank all of our residents and staff who participated in bringing this story to life!

Get Inspired to Stay Active as a Senior Citizen

 

Active Senior Citizens

 

Staying active becomes more daunting as we age. Our minds and bodies tell us that we are simply too old to accomplish certain physical feats. But, is this what our reality should be? According to some extraordinary individuals, the answer is, “no”.

Humans are capable of much; age does not stop that. To prove this point, MSN published a video showcasing six senior athletes. The sports featured include: cycling, swimming, powerlifting, CrossFit, and gymnastics.

Here are six reasons why you should not give up on being active!

  1. Ida Keeling (102-years-old): set a world record in the 100-meter race at the Penn Relays; completed her first race at 67-years-old.
  2. Paul Tetrick (86-years-old): won more than 12 USA Cycling Time Trial Championships.
  3. Willie Murphy (77-years-old): won the World Natural Powerlifting Federation’s Lifter of the Year Award in 2014. She says powerlifting gives her, “a little edge in life”.
  4. Johanna Quaas (92-years-old): oldest gymnast in the world; started the sport at 50-years-old and entered her first competition at 56-years-old.
  5. Pat Gallant-Charette (66-years-old): oldest woman to swim the English Channel.
  6. Jacinto Bonilla (78-years-old): oldest competitor at the 2011 CrossFit Games.

At Presbyterian Senior Care of WNY, we believe in making exercise an option for all our residents. Exercise programs are offered at all of our locations: Presbyterian Village at North ChurchLockport Presbyterian Home, Ken-Ton Presbyterian Village.

If you have any questions on what these programs entail, contact us; we would love to help!


PSCWNY Celebrates Veterans Day

On Saturday, Nov. 11, Presbyterian Senior Careย celebrated Veterans Day with its residents. This year, the important national holiday was observed and celebrated in unique ways amongst our community members, staff, and volunteers. It was a day dedicated to extraordinary individuals and the remembrance of their selfless actions.

It was with great joy that we were afforded the opportunity to celebrate with retired veterans living within our residential communities.

At Lockport Presbyterian Home, two tables were set up in the parlor to showcase their veterans.ย They recognized residents, staff, and volunteers!

The photographs depicted the veterans from their days of service adding so much nostalgia to this year’s celebration.

 

Lockport Veterans Day

 

At Ken-Ton Presbyterian Village, Veterans Day was celebrated with a specific acknowledgment of the former servicemen residing in the community.

It is with great delight that we are able to share their bright, smiling faces in the photographs below with you!

 

Ken-Ton Veterans Day

 

At Presbyterian Village at North Church, an American Flag flew high as a visual representation of the freedom our Veterans have fought for. It continues to stand as a symbolic token of appreciation to all those who have served in our nation’s military.

 

 

We would like extend our gratitude to all of those, both staff and volunteers, who participated in the celebrations.

To all of our veterans, both in and outside of our community, we give our sincerest thank you โ€” your service does not go unnoticed. We salute you today and every day!

PSCWNY Walks For A Cure

At Presbyterian Senior Care, we love giving back to the community! We believe it is important to help local organizations strive to find cures to illnesses that harm our loved ones.

Recently, our staff from all three communities and corporate participated in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s! Everyone was excited to spend a sunny morning with friends and families and walk to live in a world without Alzheimer’s.

We rocked the color purple and had so much fun walking around Delaware Park. We even had the chance to see some of the animals at The Buffalo Zoo as we walked by! It was amazing to see that this event brought out over three thousand people who also want to help find a cure for Alzheimer’s. ๐Ÿ˜Š

We’re so proud of our staff for spending the day to help out an organization that is dear to our hearts. ๐Ÿ’œ
