Mothers’ Day at Care One

MIDDLETOWN – Flowers, special desserts and inside visitation are all featured at the King James Care Center honoring all residents who are mothers, grandmothers, and great grandmothers this Sunday, said Activities Director Karen Cohen. “We’re so happy to be able to make this Mother’s Day so festive for our residents,” Cohen said, in noting that with no Covid cases at the Center, either among staff or residents, inside visitation as well as outside visitation are available Sunday during regular visiting hours. Family members must make reservations for the visits, the director continued, in order to be certain the caregivers at the Center can meet everyone’s needs and ensure Covid-free environments and space limitations. Reservations can be made simply by calling the care center at 732-291-3400, for visitation between 10 a.m. and noon and 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday. Residents have the option of outside visitation, weather permitting, or inside with safe distances. Each of the honored residents will be presented with flowers, Cohen said, and all will be able to enjoy festive desserts and beverage in the Center’s main dining room. Residents get to celebrate Mothers' Day all week with a variety of activities and special events, since it also is Nurses and Skilled Nurses Week and the Activities Department recognizes their staff with special events to honor all the nurses and skilled staff who are employed at King James. Beginning this Thursday the celebration week include Thirsty Thursday, which will feature root beer floats and a raffle basket for staff, chocolate covered strawberries and sparkling cider on May 7, and Ice Cream Social , May 10, a chocolate fountain on May 12, Bingo Bingo and more Bingo the following day, all activities for both staff and residents, and to complete the week of activities, a BBQ honoring all residents and staff on May 14. “It is wonderful to be here Sunday to see our residents enjoy this special day,” said Andrews Kahane, care center administrator. “Our staff at all levels works so hard to ensure a Covid-free environment and entertaining recreational activities for our residents all the time. And our residents certainly always show their appreciation and tell me how much they enjoy it. But Mother’s Day is really so special for so many of the residents that it is nice to see we are able to offer so much visitation and still feel confident our residents are healthy and safe.”
