assisted living

Wesley_Heights_Residents-1Wesley Village, a campus of senior care communities in Shelton, recently honored several centenarians at their assisted and independent living communities.

Wesley Heights residents gathered for their monthly birthday party on Monday, May 11th, recognizing and honoring those born during the month of May.

The month’s festivities included resident Minnie Sutton, who will celebrate her 105th birthday on May 27th. Along with Minnie were four other residents at Wesley Heights who celebrated 100 years or more!

Residents enjoyed birthday cupcakes and punch, provided by the Wesley Heights Dining Services team, as well as dancing and entertainment by Larry and Doreen Crasilli.

Crosby Commons resident, Marion Prescott, also celebrated her 100th birthday this past February. As part of her birthday wish, she and her friends at Crosby Commons worked together to create over 35 gifts bags for families in need.

With the help of Activities Director, Mary Ann Milano, Prescott and her fellow residents recently donated the gifts to BH Care, a community health care provider serving the lower Naugatuck Valley, Greater New Haven, and Shoreline communities. http://bhcare.org/

Wesley Heights and Crosby Commons are located on the Wesley Village Campus at 580 Long Hill Avenue in Shelton and offer award-winning independent and assisted living, as well as a new memory care neighborhood, Lifestyle Transitions at Wesley Heights.
