Gracie & I made our first visit to Cardinal Village this past Sunday and I thought I would give you an update. What a positive experience it was! As it was our first time, we mostly just mingled and stopped in the common areas and hallway. Gracie was calm and well behaved and everyone loved her. Not only the residents, but the staff too. She sat for petting and just hung out. I had a nice conversation with a few of the residents waiting for clergy to come and Gracie just laid at their feet with her paws crossed.

We did a quick stop in two rooms. There was one with the door open and although the resident called out to us, she did not want us to come in. Her son was visiting and said to come on in. The resident’s fear was that Gracie would jump up on her but once she felt comfortable with Gracie's calm demeanor, she didn't want us to leave!

We were so busy in Assisted Living that we never made it over to Independent Living so we will start there next time. I want to thank you for this opportunity for Gracie and I to have this experience and placing your trust in us.

A Cardinal Village Resident’s Opportunity of a Lifetime with Connie Francis

Read More >>

At Cardinal Village, you can always find a resident with an interesting story to tell. Residents love to reminisce about previous jobs, their love lives, or fantastic opportunities they had as young adults. Maria Filippello is one of those residents, as she enjoys telling her Cinderella Story. Maria was 33 years old when she got the opportunity of a lifetime. She lived in south Philadelphia and worked for the Italian Cruise Line in their Philadelphia office. She took a vacation to Miami Beach, where she met a woman named Ida, and began talking to her. They met up with each other and talked for two days, when finally Ida Franconero told Maria she was Connie Francis’ mother. Ida was looking for a good personal assistant for Connie. She liked Maria and trusted her to look after her young daughter and felt Maria could be the perfect personal assistant. When Maria and Connie first met at the hotel in Miami Beach, they hit it off immediately. Maria said she would consider their offer and would be in touch after returning home. Once she was back in Philadelphia, Maria spoke to her boss at the cruise line, and he told her to take advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and her job would be waiting for her when she returned. Connie invited Maria to a New Year’s Eve party at her home in northern New Jersey, where Maria accepted her offer to be her personal assistant.
Cardinal Village offering New Pet Therapy Program

Residents at Cardinal Village Senior Living now have the opportunity to improve their physical and mental health, thanks to a new pet therapy program provided by PAWS for People. PAWS for People (Pet-Assisted Visitation Volunteer Services) is a non-profit organization that provides therapeutic visits to people in the community that would benefit from interaction with a loving, trained pet. PAWS provides therapies to a variety of people, including, but not limited to, senior living communities, hospital patients, nursing homes, and elementary schools. Cardinal Village is one of two senior living communities in New Jersey to benefit from the services provided by PAWS. “We are thrilled to provide pet therapy to our residents at Cardinal Village,” said Karen Dixon, marketing director. “Cardinal Village is always looking for ways to enhance the quality of life of our residents and this new pet therapy program will provide them with a different type of interaction during the day and the dogs can make them feel safe and comfortable, while improving their overall health. We are excited to start this program in the New Year and we hope all the residents enjoy it!” PAWS for People will begin at Cardinal Village in January 2014 with one therapy team, made up of one handler and one dog, visiting twice a week. Therapy visits will start in the assisted living community with plans to expand into independent living soon after. “There’s a special bond between people and dogs,” said Lynne Robinson, executive director of PAWS. “When people are around dogs, they lose their inhibitions, they relax, and it’s a trusting relationship. Our pets provide support to people who may need it. The dogs give people attention and they listen to what people have to say.” The therapy dogs are more than just dogs. They bring out the best in people and can interact just the way people can. When the dogs are brought in for therapy, residents will sit up, smile and talk to the animals. They’ll use their speaking skills and move more as they play catch with the dogs. It also gives the residents something to talk about throughout the day, telling their families how enjoyable it was to have a dog there. According to Robinson, studies have shown that pet therapy benefits participants both physically and mentally. Just by simply petting a dog causes a relaxation response and elevates moods. Pet therapy can also lower anxiety, provide comfort, and reduce loneliness by providing companionship. Feelings of isolation and alienation can be decreased, emotional outlook is brightened, and mental stimulation is increased. Physically, pet therapy can lower blood pressure, ease anxiety, and decrease overall pain. “Our animals go through regular and specialized training in order to be used for therapy,” said Robinson. “Our dogs provide completion in a person’s life; they are fun, amusing, adorable, and they form emotional ties to the residents. We are so glad to bring pet therapy to Cardinal Village and we hope the residents can benefit from these services for better physical and mental health.” For more information about PAWS for People pet therapy at Cardinal Village Senior Living, please call Karen Dixon, marketing director, at 856-582-5292.

Veterans
Warriors Watch Riders of New Jersey Honor Cardinal Village Residents

Cardinal Village recently had visitors from the Warriors Watch Ride of New Jersey. Over 50 of them arrived on motorcycles and came in and hugged, kissed and thanked our vets and their families. They then presented Cardinal Village with a Certificate of Gratitude and the Warriors Watch Honor Coin. The Certificate of Gratitude was given to Cardinal Village Veterans in honor of their military service and dedication to our country. The Honor Coin features the wingspread American eagle, the symbol of the WWR. Warriors, past and present, are symbolized by the POW/MIA silhouette; families of warriors are symbolized by the blue star; and the families of warriors who gave the ultimate sacrifice are symbolized by the gold star. All are under the wings of the protective eagle. On the reverse side in the center of the coin is a lone rider. Surrounding him are the symbols of the National Heroes he has sworn to serve: Air Force, Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, Police and Firefighters. Circling the outside of the ring is the WWR promise, “Never again will an American warrior be scorned or ignored.” Cardinal Village is proud to be home to many Veterans, and we thank all of our resident Veterans, as well as those in the community and our warriors who continue to serve each and every day.
