Brandywine Living at Princeton celebrated National Grandparents Day as they kicked off National Assisted Living Week 2020: Caring is EssentiAL.

National Assisted Living Week’s mission is to provide an opportunity for communities to recognize the important role of assisted living in caring for America’s seniors. The community is celebrating with the theme “Life is a Treasure”.

“The Pirates of Princeton” set sail on Sept. 14 on a homemade pirate ship while team members and residents got decked out in pirate attire. There was a search for buried treasure, complete with treasure maps, and a temporary tattoo station for anyone that wanted to get some ink and join the pirate crew. Jack Sparrow even stopped by.

Pirate grub was served, including sea snails (cocktail franks), peg legs (chicken wings), crangon (shrimp), seaweed dip (spinach dip), seashell pasta salad, crab witches (croissant stuffed with crab salad) and blue ocean cocktails.

Live entertainment was provided by Pam and Steve for pirate dancing.

 

“I think that even during the pandemic, this event showed inspiration and togetherness as residents and team members from the Princeton assisted living community came together. We celebrated, enjoyed and just had fun. The outdoor program was designed with all social and safe precautions, as our residents’ safety is paramount,” said Stephanie Gaber, Escapades producer of Brandywine Living at Princeton.
