It was a joyful afternoon at Schervier Pavilion on Sun., Dec. 8.
Santa, played by Schervier Pavilion resident Luis Vega, paid an early visit that day and spent several hours posing for photographs with other residents and their families along with his merry, “Ho, Ho, Ho!”
Members of the Warwick Valley Middle School Orchestra provided musical entertainment for the afternoon and Schervier Pavilion staff prepared a table of holiday treats, cookies, punch and other refreshments. “We hosted this and other events to give our residents and their families an opportunity to share a holiday tradition,” said Schervier Pavilion Director of Recreation Kari Call. “We’re happy that our residents were able to enjoy this visit by Santa and our celebration with their families.”
As Director of Recreation, Call’s job is to provide recreation resources and opportunities for both the long- and short-term residents of the skilled nursing home in order to maintain and improve their health and well being.
All programs at Schervier Pavilion are designed to meet the psychosocial and physical needs of the residents with activities that are not only enjoyable but are also intended to achieve this goal.
