National Night Out Celebration & More Summer Fun

National Night Out Celebration & More Summer Fun

September 2nd, 2021

Our National Night Out celebration was one for the books here at Lexington Pointe Senior Living! Community members in attendance were served a hot dog basket, root beer floats, and beer and wine. We also had a “smooch the pooch” kissing booth to enjoy some affection from an adorable puppy. Many attendees wore red, white, and blue in honor of our “Backyard Olympics” competition. Participants played cornhole (bean bag toss), washer toss, ring toss, a putting and chipping contest, and a water balloon toss. Some received gold medals for their victories, but everyone agreed that all the fun of playing together was the biggest prize.

We’d like to give a special thank you to “Denny the Muzikman” for entertaining us with his wonderful accordion performance, as well as the Alzheimer’s Association for their generous donations. And thank you to everyone who participated and made this incredible night of fun and community-building happen!

Lexington Pointe Senior Living’s staff received some heartwarming thank you letters following our National Night Out celebration, including this one from all our incredible residents:

“Thank you for your hard work and manual labor, food, entertainment, and clean-up on Tuesday night! It was fun and appreciated. Many thanks again.” – The Residents

We are so lucky to have such a fun, caring, and close-knit community. Thank you all for the kind and thoughtful messages – we are so glad to hear how much everyone enjoyed the night!

To help deal with the summer heat, we decided to have a water fight with students from the All Seasons Preschool. It was the perfect way to cool down and, as you can see, it spread a LOT of joy and laughter along the way! 💦🤣

Members of our Memory Care units recently got together to shuck corn. Everyone had an amazing time and did an excellent job! A big thank you to Joan and Nancy for helping out. 🌽

A speaker from the Metropolitan Airports Commission (MAC) recently came by Lexington Pointe to give a presentation about traveling during the pandemic, as well as other interesting information and developments at the airport. Many of our community members attended the event and found it very informative and enjoyable.

Earlier this summer, we hosted a tea party during the men’s semi-final match of Wimbledon. Chef John prepared some delicious tea sandwiches to enjoy while sipping tea of various flavors and watching the competition. We also had a trivia game about Wimbledon and tea party etiquette! 🫖☕🥪🎾

Lexington Pointe’s management team celebrated National Tie Dye day in style! Here’s our Residence Director, Emily K., Director of Nursing, Suzy P., and Activities Director, Jen Z., showing off their fun and colorful outfits.

Notes of Appreciation

March 5th, 2021

We received some notes of appreciation for our staff recently, which we always love!

This was sent to our Residence Director, Emily K., by one of our resident couples to express their gratitude for our associate, Ben, in maintenance:

“I have just elected myself President of ‘Ben’s Fan Club.’ After expressing how challenging it was for me to get wet laundry into, and dry laundry out of, our dryer, he came to our apartment ‘posthaste’ and changed the direction that the dryer door opens. I thought it was important to inform you of our appreciation for Ben and his talent, thoughtfulness, and prompt response when I pointed out my concern. Three cheers for Ben!” – Jan and Jack P.

Our Management team also received a note from the daughter of Howard, one of our newest community members:

“Thanks so much for all that you do for my dad, as well as for your kindness. It was very difficult to see him leave, but I know he is in good hands. It was a pleasure meeting all of you. Take care of yourselves!” -Jenny S.

We prioritize the safety, happiness, and well-being of our community members in everything we do at Lexington Pointe, and we love when our residents and their families let us know that it shows. Thank you so much for the kind and thoughtful messages!

Super Bowl Party & The History of Cupcakes at Lexington Pointe

February 19th, 2021

On Friday, February 5, we decided to turn our community happy hour into a Super Bowl party here at Lexington Pointe! Our Residence Directory, Emily K., walked around with an inflatable football goal post on her head for a fun “ring toss” game for our residents. There was also a Super Bowl word scramble and football target toss game for everyone to enjoy. And, of course, we served up some Super Bowl classics like chicken wings, chips and salsa, and mini football cookies.

Lexington Pointe resident, Don B., went all out with his Valentine’s Day doorway decorations!

We certainly love a good cupcake here at Lexington Pointe Senior Living! Our amazing Chef, Josh T., and Dietary Aide, Christina N., teamed up for what we’re calling “The History of Cupcakes at Lexington Pointe,” AKA “Christina’s Cupcakes.” We can’t thank them enough for using their talents and passion in the kitchen to provide such a fun (and very, very tasty) experience for our residents. Check out all the deliciously creative treats they’ve been preparing and serving up!

Lovely Note From Lexington Pointe Couple

December 21st, 2020

A Lexington Pointe couple sent a lovely note to our Residence Director, Emily K., about the festive decorations around our community:

“Christmas has arrived at Lexington Pointe! The decorations are wonderful. It is a joy to walk the halls, enter the front door, (and) to take it all in! Displays on the shelves of residents’ doors brighten the lives of folks who walk by. Think how wonderful it will be next year when we can join many of the residents for good food and conversation!” – Jan and Jack P.

We know this holiday season will be different, and we’re SO happy to hear that the decorations are still bringing the joy and holiday spirit to our community. Thank you, Jan and Jack, for the kind note!
