Holidays at Aravilla Memory Care

memory care Aravilla Sarasota holiday celebration

We had a busy holiday season at Aravilla. We started the month off by going out to see the Christmas lights displays around town. On the Tour of Lights, we admired the incredibly decorated neighborhoods complete with fake snow and a Candyland-themed house as we sang Christmas Carols on the bus. This month we also gathered with hot chocolate and marshmallows to watch holiday movies. The Resident Holiday Party gave our residents a chance to mingle while enjoying live music with Joey and Bill. We served many tasty desserts such as brownies and cheesecake. As always, a very jolly Santa came to our party along with the beautiful Mrs. Clause and a happy elf. We enjoyed cookies and eggnog at the Employee/ Resident Holiday Party. In the gift exchange the residents received cozy, fuzzy holiday socks, Aravilla hats and yummy chocolates. The employees also received a Christmas gift from the residents and their families. Carol called all of our employees one-by-one and we applauded each and everyone of them as they received their gift. To kick off our fabulous new year, the residents were feted with champagne and a Noon Year’s Eve countdown to 2023! We are looking forward to a wonderful and busy 2023 at Aravilla.
