The three spectacular program highlights for June are:

As summer approaches and we transition into the season of light and magic, The Riverside continues to shine brighter than ever. At The Riverside, none of the functional needs of our residents or staff get left unmet. The month of June holds many holidays such as Flag Day, Juneteenth, Fathers Day, Summer Solstice, and the NY Primary Election, allowing our residents to remain involved in traditions they enjoy. We celebrate these holidays by transforming our resident’s living spaces into ones that reflect the holidays at hand. For Flag Day, we are bringing our residents together to witness the beauty of diversity. Our residents will learn about the different flags representing countries worldwide and bask in the music and traditional foods from those select countries. For Father’s Day, we will be providing our fathers at the Riverside with a gift to show our appreciation and recognize their amazing contribution to the community.

The Flag of Me
On June 9th, we will be holding a self-expression program called The Flag of Me, which will be held in select units throughout the building. The program will allow residents to meet their physical, cognitive, and spiritual needs by transferring their image of themselves in their heads into decorative flags. Residents will be escorted into a colorful and creative space, surrounded by calming music. Residents will have the option to choose from a wide selection of colorful cloths, beads, markers, and press on stencils to create their personalized flags.

Paul McCartney Celebration
On June 17th, 2022, The Riverside’s very own multitalented musician and recreation therapist, Evan Getz will be putting on a Paul McCartney celebration in the solarium. The event will allow residents to have a blast from the past. Residents will gather in our Solarium, where they will receive light refreshments and listen to The Beatle’s classics and some of Paul McCartney’s solo hits. Residents will also have the opportunity to flex their Beatles knowledge by answering trivia questions throughout the event. There will be a short film featuring Paul McCartney during his time with The Beatles band. The Residents of The Riverside will be provided with any necessary assistance during and after the program.

New York State Primary Election
You’ve got to vote, vote, vote, vote! A quote made famous by our former First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama. All our residents at The Riverside who are eligible will have the right to vote in NY State Primary Elections on June 28th. The Therapeutic Recreation staff at The Riverside will be going around and assisting all interested residents in filling out their ballots and casting their votes. At The Riverside, we acknowledge and encourage all residents to continue their civic duty.
