Scheduled for Wednesday, September 20th, two days before the official start of Fall, this years feast will be fantastic, as usual! As always, friends and family are invited. Just call our front desk at 784-2900 and sign up your guests. Take a look at our menu on page four.

Supporting the Arts

Our Fair Lady, Tonie Ramsey, has become the latest resident to lend her image to our series of theater-inspired ads, which appear in the playbills for The Franco-American Heritage Center, as well as the Public Theater and other local performing arts centers.

Past participants have been Ralph Gould, posing as The Phantom of the Opera, and Romeo and Theresa Labbe, posing as none other than Romeo and Juliet! See our previous season’s ad on the back page of this issue of the Flash!

Thank you to all our models for making our annual playbill ads a hit!

 

It is with great pleasure that we welcome you to our community!

Save the Date

It’s never too early to start preparing for a craft fair.  The date for Schooner’s craft fair this year is Saturday, October 21st.

If you would like to reserve a table or two to display your crafts, for yourself, a friend or family member, just let Giselle Prevost know and she will be happy to sign you up and give you all the details! Her office is down the hall from the Camden Living Room or you may call her at ext. 135.

“I’m Not Ready Yet”

We hear that comment so often when talking to people about the lifestyle at Schooner Estates and sometimes find it difficult to answer in a brief way. The article below, says exactly what we would like to say to folks who are trying to make this decision.

How often a strong and vigorous man or an active and gracious woman enter their retirement years and use this excuse to postpone the planning and decisions that could free them to enjoy the time.

They’re not ready yet…

•To live in an attractive and comfortable home without the effort of maintaining it.

•To enjoy excellent meals, graciously served in an attractive dining room, and give up the chores of constant shopping, cooking, and cleaning up.

•To eliminate worry concerning health, security and transportation.

They’re not ready, in short, to simplify their lives. They wait for some sign, some failing, to justify or even compel a move from the home that’s too big, or chores and possessions which require a great deal of attention. Sometimes they wait too long.

Sometimes they find they have wasted what could have been some of their better years. Moving to senior living shouldn’t mean retiring from life, but simplifying life to enjoy new interests and activities, or the old ones there wasn’t enough time for. One doesn’t step into old age by moving to a community, but opens a new door to an active, dignified and interesting life.

What does the senior living home have to offer? Independence, a sense of community, friendships, a place to be private and security.

Our best gift? A gift of time to use constructively and personal services to be used as needed.

Welcome Back Katelyn!

We are happy to report that our former home health nurse, Jen Kelliher, Schooner RN, is thoroughly enjoying being a mom. It does sadden us though that she has decided to tender her resignation from Schooner.  We thank Jen for all her support of our Schooner community over this past year and wish her the best with her family.

And…we’re very pleased to share that Katelyn Sanford has accepted the full time Home Health Nurse position.  Everyone is thrilled to have Katelyn back and move into this position permanently.  Katelyn has done an incredible job for us filling in for Jen over the past 3 months.  Her knowledge, expertise and passion for our Schooner family will continue to serve us well.   Please join me in welcoming Katelyn to her new position.

Quilts…Save the Date

Quilts, they warm the heart and soul and truly are works of art. That being said, we are happy to inform you of an upcoming event. Join our own Giselle Prevost for a ride to the Maine Quilt Show, to be held on Thursday, July 27th.

Warm Weather Health Tips

Preparation and moderation are the key regarding enjoying time outdoors during the summer months. By following some common sense tips, we can all more fully enjoy the good summer weather and avoid over exposure to the sun and heat.

— What’s The Hurry? — Summer should be enjoyed, so why rush? The faster you move the more your body heats, especially in warm weather.

— Shade — Plan outdoor activities for cooler early morning hours. Look for shaded areas such as a covered porch or under a tree to enjoy an activity. Heat can impact seniors as easily indoors as it can outdoors, so be sure air conditioning is used. Lower shades to keep light and heat out.

— A Need to Hydrate — Ice cream, popsicles and other frozen treats are refreshing on a warm day. Also, drink plenty of water, juice and sports drinks while avoiding caffeine. Here at Schooner, check out our Brass Rail Café in the Village Green and the Camden coffee bar area. We have cool drinks available daily. Stay hydrated and stay healthy!

Coming Soon: Our 2017 Open House!

Saturday, September 9th we will be holding our Annual Open House! The past two years have been extremely successful thanks to the talent and involvement of you, our residents! Once again, we will be looking for volunteers to be involved in the day’s events. We will be featuring another display of Veteran’s pictures and items, and displaying your arts and crafts! If you have an idea of how you’d like to participate, please let us know! And don’t forget to invite your friends and family. Remember; Our Community is Your Community!

Strive to be Compassionate

Despite popular belief that compassion depends solely on you, the way to achieve it may not lie just within yourself, but in your relationships and interactions with others. When we have feelings of caring or love for other people, we feel better.

So how can you tell if you are or not?

You find commonalities with other people. Compassionate people are very outward-focused because they think and feel about other people. They have that ability to feel others’ feelings, so they’re very socially connected.

You don’t put emphasis on money. If money doesn’t buy happiness, then it doesn’t buy compassion, either. A major component of compassion is giving back, even in the smallest ways. When we take actions that are caring and loving, we feel more love in return.

Be kind to yourself. If we treat ourselves harshly, this is the way we are likely to treat other people.

Teach Others. Compassionate people don’t want to just keep their gifts to themselves, they want to impart their knowledge onto other people

You Express Gratitude. Empathetic individuals not only acknowledge those acts of kindness done unto them, they actively express gratitude for them.

You’re Mindful. When you’re exercising compassion, you’re putting yourself in the moment. Compassionate people aren’t listening and checking their smartphones at the same time — they’re present, offering their empathetic response to the story right in front of them.

Happiness is a Cup of Tea

A delightful event was held in our Tenants Harbor Room on April 9th, an old-fashioned tea party complete with tasty delicacies on fancy serving trays, an assortment of teas, colorful teapots and cups. We heard that the ginger and cream cheese sandwiches were the hit of the party! Forty nine people attended and a total of $555.00 was raised for the Alzheimer’s Association.

Thank you to all who attended this festive party fundraiser. We’ll have it again next year!

A “Must See” Performance

World renowned concert pianist Frederick Moyer will deliver a concert performance for us on Monday, May 22nd at 6:30 p.m. in our Camden Living Room. He has performed for us several times in the past and we are excited to have him back.

Mr. Moyer has appeared as piano soloist with most of the major orchestras of the United States as well as many in Europe, Asia, South America, Africa and Australia. Don’t miss this concert!

Almost Time for Planting

Soon it will be time to think about planting, and we have the perfect area, right here at Schooner. Located behind Schooner on the fire road out back, we have several raised garden plots that are used by residents for growing flowers and vegetables. Memorial Day, which is the official time to start planting outdoors, arrives on Monday, May 29th. Check with Mark Prevost for more information on garden plot availability.

Quilters Wanted!

Join us on Tuesday, May 23rd at 2:30 pm to view a beautiful display of handmade quilts. Listen to each quilter as they tell you “the story” of their quilt. Simply put, a quilt is a work of art and each and every quilter is proud to show you their creation!

Contact Giselle Prevost in the Camden building if you have a quilt you would like to enter in the “Show and Tell”. We will be delighted to have you there!

Refreshments will be available.

This event will be held in our Tenants Harbor Room.

The Ultimate Independence

Being in control of one’s life until the end of one’s life is almost without fail the desire of every human being who realizes his own mortality. Loss of independence in decision making can be much more devastating than loss of mobility or memory. Human dignity is dependent on independence of mind. Making decisions for oneself in planning the remainder of life no matter what befalls us, can be done when one considers all options available in senior living. A senior care facility assures this independence and frees the mind and body of retirees and their families. Decisions made early eliminate later stresses – think about it!

Let’s Go on a Trip

“Spring Fever” has officially begun! Here at Schooner we are taking full advantage and starting off with a three-day getaway. The destination is beautiful, scenic “Cape Cod” in Massachusetts.

Leaving on May 15th and returning on May 17th, this fun filled trip includes sight seeing, dining, shopping, entertainment and don’t forget the sandy beaches! We already have a full sign up list and they are all quite anxious to go.

We’ve said it many times before and it is so true…Schooner is the place to be for exciting senior programs, events and activities.
