The truck rolls in….

The third Friday afternoon of each winter month the Feeding America truck pulls in at 45 Capitol Drive at the Shorehaven warehouse to unload hundreds of pounds of food to feed the hungry. In cooperation with Our Savior’s Lutheran Church and St. Paul’s Ev. Lutheran Church, dozens of volunteers pitch in from numerous denominations to offer food with no questions asked, no forms to complete. Shorehaven provides its warehouse space free of charge to feed more than 240 families December through February. Feeding America works with the City’s outdoor space for March through November drives.

Roses for 100 years…

A single rose, balloon and invitation were placed on each of 94 apartment doors this week, inviting all Lake Terrace residents to their friend’s 100th Birthday Celebration in the Clubhouse. Bernice Petushek’s family made sure all residents, staff and friends knew of this milestone Bernice was crossing. Bernice dined on cake, coffee and ice cream with more than 100 of her best friends. How do you reach 100? “Lots of laughter,” chuckled the grinning resident, “And my neighborly support system. A few carrots, cooked any way, help, too.”

Gift of music spans lives

She comes armed with a guitar and a ukulele, a great big singing voice and a smile as wide as Lake Michigan. Music Therapist Hanna Uchytil of Vitas Hospice believes that music will enrich the lives of seniors facing the end of their lives.

Uchytil will see up to 50 patients a week, offering her music choices and a comforting rapport with seniors. She visits Shorehaven regularly, as she shares songs and stories with residents seeking comfort through music. “The music reduces agitation, offers relaxation, creates bonds, and prepares people for end of life care,” said Uchytil. “I love music, and it’s a privilege for me to be able to share that love.”

Crooning “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” and Harry Belafonte’s “Banana Boat” song on a ukulele, the music therapist also plays the guitar, piano and Native American flute. “Residents are able to share their legacies with me when we meet. The seniors have so much to offer, their stories, laughter and all their experiences as they age.” She is especially proud to share those moments at Shorehaven. “I love this facility. I love the staff and the residents they care for. There’s a warm and welcoming feeling here.” She’s also happy to take requests, she smiles, as she breaks out the guitar for “Five Foot Two, Eyes of Blue,” and the toe tapping refrain.
