This year’s National Assisted Living Week Theme, “Nourishing Life: Mind, Body, Spirit” is a perfect way to describe the annual Assisted Living Luncheon held by Welch Healthcare & Retirement Group in celebration of Village at Proprietors Green’s residents and staff. Village at Proprietors Green, a senior living community offering independent living, assisted living and assisted living memory care is managed by Welch Healthcare & Retirement Group.
With the sounds of the Paul Weller Band in the background, master of ceremonies Paul Casale, Jr., a fourth-generation Welch family member told the crowd, “We feel honored that you have made the decision to make your home with us.” Casale, Jr. credited his grandparents, Mrs. Rita Welch and her husband, Thomas, with creating the senior housing and services company more than 65 years ago, with the mission of providing compassionate nursing care to frail elders.
Casale, Jr. turned the proceedings over to guest speaker, certified personal trainer and Chaboom Instructor Lauretta Jennings; that’s when the Indian Ponds Country Club Function Room began to rock! Chaboom is a 50-minute chair exercise program that involves upper and lower body movement. Jennings encouraged guests out of their seats, to celebrate the day and the joy of movement.
