If you’ve visited any one of our UMH communities lately, you may have noticed some of our staff members walking around wearing a t-shirt that says #UMatterHere. “Cool,” you might be thinking, “They are doing some kind of team-building t-shirt initiative. I wonder what it’s all about.” But wait! Did you stop to ask anyone, “What’s the deal with the #UMatterHere shirts?” Probably not. It’s okay. We know you wanted to. So why is everyone wearing those shirts?
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.
If you walk into Middlewoods of Farmington, you are in for a treat! We have just completed renovating our award-winning community! Beautiful, new carpets and flooring grace the hallways and common spaces throughout the three floors of our building. The Country Kitchen has been totally renovated with new flooring, cabinets, countertops, and appliances. The focal point of this area is the large farmhouse table which is a favorite spot for residents to sit and chat. With the help of a new seating arrangement that is more conducive to conversations, the Living Room has been transformed into a premier gathering area. In the Dining Room, a separate and noise-protected workspace was built to improve service for our residents. New flooring and wall-coverings pull the entire space together. The former Tea Room down the hall has been transformed into a Theater Room, with larger and more comfortable seating so residents can enjoy sitting and watching a movie on the new, state-of-the-art flat-screen TV.
A simple act of kindness goes a long way for those in need. This is the motto for Church Street Eats, a ministry of over 40 groups who commit their time and talents to help feed and clothe community members. Schools, businesses, and various religious groups from all over the state participate in this great cause. Last weekend, residents of Middlewoods of Farmington Independent and Assisted Living community, a group affiliated with Church Street Eats, prepared 100 lunch bags to deliver to Bushnell Park in Hartford. This was part of a weekly initiative designed to help feed locals in need.
