Windwood Jazz Duo Concert & More at Lexington Pointe

Windwood Jazz Duo Concert & More at Lexington Pointe

September 6th, 2021

Lexington Pointe residents enjoyed an hour of music from the Windwood Jazz Duo. The performers, Chris and Conrad, put on a very entertaining show for a packed house. And it just so happens that Conrad is the son-in-law of two of our residents. Thank you both so much for donating your time and talents to our community! 🎸🎷

We recently enjoyed a lovely (and adorable) visit with our furry friend and therapy dog, Lexi. She’s a rescue who’s 7 years old and is amazing with our community members! While visiting with one of our Memory Care residents, Bob R., she tried to “sneak” some of his water and licked his straw, which gave everyone a good laugh! πŸ˜‚πŸ•β€πŸ¦Ί

Lexington Pointe celebrated it’s first anniversary/birthday on September 1, and one of our resident couples sent our staff a lovely card to commemorate the occasion:

“Happy Birthday to us! Lexington Pointe and all the personnel who make it function and [a] happy campus:

One year ago today, September 1, 2020, was certainly exciting and very busy. For us, getting the keys to our new home was finally here. We were ready to move in!

For Taylor, Emily and Suzy, it meant getting the new residents checked for COVID, answering a million questions, and dealing with their requests – some simple and some otherwise!

Here’s to many good years to come. We’ll drink to that!” -Jack and Jan

Thank you for the kind message, Jack and Jan. Even though the pandemic presented us all with many unique challenges, we’ve loved serving our residents and building such an close-knit, fun, and supportive community during our first year. We look forward to many more yet to come! πŸŽ‰πŸ₯‚❀️

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! πŸ’¦πŸ€£

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! πŸ«–β˜•πŸ₯ͺ🎾

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!

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!

“Poetry is the rhythmical creation of beauty in words.” -Edgar Allan Poe

One of our residents, Evelyn P., wrote two poems inspired by her first living with us here at Lexington Pointe: “Looking at the Four Lane” and “Knocking at My Door”. We’re so lucky to have such amazing, artistic people in our community. Thank you for sharing your talents and creativity with us, Evelyn!

Even when we’re staying safe and socially distanced, a Friday happy hour is always a good time!

We’ve been really getting into the Halloween spirit here at Lexington Pointe! Residents Linda D., Faye R., and Marge D. put together “trick or treat bags” for students at the All Seasons Preschool we have on our campus. Also pictured is Don B. proudly showing off his fun and festive Halloween door decorations. Awesome job, Don!

Talk about Halloween spirit! During another recent happy hour, John and Norella U. enjoyed “green monster” cocktails served in cups decorated with Frankenstein. What better way to serve such a drink?
