Juniper Village at Brookline kicked off 2018 with a busy January. With the monthly theme of New Beginnings, staff and residents alike started the new year off with a bang!
Musical theatre took center stage during a Broadway themed piano bar highlighted event in which community theatre members treated residents to a sing along of favorite show tunes. Rich and Heidi Biever from FUSE Productions played the baby grand piano in accompaniment to songs ranging from My Fair Lady to Les Miserable for this fun filled special event.
Later in the month Juniper Senior Living at Brookline was excited to have two newly licensed personal care home administrators on their leadership team. Kathryn Bainbridge, Director of Community Relations, and Jill McKenrick, Director of Connections both completed the 100-hour course requirement and passed their licensure test to achieve these new credentials. Both will continue their current roles at Juniper but will also serve as a resource for others on regulation and state requirements for care and services.
Music again filled the air toward the end of the month when Qi Gong instructor, Amy Timan, provided an evening of engaging mindful music. The sounds of Amy strumming the acoustic guitar blended with familiar songs created a harmonious environment to express oneself through voice.
These moments of creative expression as well as a dedication to professional development are but a few examples of what sets Juniper apart. The company’s cornerstone for nurturing the spirit of life to residents and staff alike is what makes Juniper a great place to live and work.
