The enormous generosity of individuals and organizations, to benefit Saint Simeon’s, is the theme of each edition of The Ambiance. Once again, this edition highlights extraordinary people and events that allow Saint Simeon’s to expand programs, offer new services, and maintain its beautiful grounds. Examples of ‘generosity in action’ include an expanded focus on Parkinson’s at Saint Simeon’s. New equipment and programming in the Wellness Center, specific to individuals with Parkinson’s, are making a difference. A newly constructed and equipped physical therapy studio is assisting those individuals that come to Saint Simeon's for short stay rehabilitation.
The donation of a Clavinova piano and the ‘Keys to Memory’ program for individuals in our Memory Center has been a fabulous addition. Music has a way of unlocking stored memories and bringing untold joy. On the medical side, the addition of a bladder scanner allows nursing to diagnosis issues more quickly and efficiently.
And finally, if you’ve been to Saint Simeon’s in the past few months you may have noticed a much smoother drive! New asphalt was laid and it looks great. These examples (and many more) were made possible by those shown on the preceding pages of this magazine. On behalf of everyone at Saint Simeon’s, thank you.
