Residents of Crosby Commons, an award-winning senior living community in Shelton, were honored to learn that a jigsaw puzzle they completed together would soon hang proudly in a West Virginia hospital. The 1000 piece puzzle exhibits serviceman across the military and credits veterans with many of the freedoms Americans enjoy today.
Ms. Landino, mother of Dr. Frank Landino, a Diagnostic Neuro Radiologist at the Veterans Administration Hospital in West Virginia, was recently visiting Crosby Commons when she noticed the puzzle. Thinking of her son, Ms. Landino had a wonderful idea. She contacted Crosby’s Activities Director, Kelly Coppola, and offered to purchase the puzzle to give to her son when it was complete. Unfortunately, purchasing the puzzle was not an option, but donating the puzzle was a definite!
Dr. Landino was thrilled to receive the puzzle. He explains, “The puzzle is truly a celebration to honor and remind us of the unselfish duties given to God, country and all of us.” It now hangs proudly in its new home in the hospital, offering viewers a moment of meditation and reconnection to the great values of this country. “The puzzle is a very special reminder of Shelton, Connecticut, and of the talents and generosity of Crosby’s residents,” Dr. Landino continues.
Crosby Commons is located on the Wesley Village Campus and offers independent and assisted senior living. The campus is located at 580 Long Hill Avenue in Shelton and is owned and operated by United Methodist Homes, a local mission-based, not-for-profit organization.
