I’ve known Mary ifor many years while she was living at the Chelsea Tinton Falls. As an Activity Director I always tried to encourage residents to attend activities . At the beginning she was not comfortable attending activities …But after many months she decided to start coming to a few activities. She’s especially enjoyed exercises, entertainment and of course Catholic mass and rosary. She really surprise me one time when she came down for a new program we were trying…. It was a virtual reality program and the residents wore goggles and they were able to see under the ocean with whales and other fish. She was the first one to try it she said she wanted to look at it because that’s what someone in her family did. She loved it and she actually did it twice and encouraged the other residents to try it. Mary was a lovely lady who never complainedI and was always very appreciative of our visits. She will be missed at the Chelsea.
