Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

All of the residents and staff at Elder Care Network would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Hodgdon Green resident goes on first outing in 1 year+

Residents at Hodgdon Green in Damariscotta have been restricted from taking outings since the quarantine began in March 2020.  With new protocols in place, Lila, who is now 99 and our oldest resident, enjoyed s shopping trip to Mexicali Blues.  Hodgdon Green is one of ElderCare Network’s six assisted homes in Lincoln County.

Kathe Cheska, ElderCare Network Director of Advancement, and Hodgdon Green resident Lila enjoy a trip to Mexicali Blues.

While assisted living residents have been permitted to go on car rides, they have been prohibited from getting out of the car or van until new State and federal guidelines were put into effect last week.  Lila loves to shop, so her first outing was to Mexicali Blues (with mask). On the way back they stopped in Nobleboro to visit the fish ladder to Damariscotta Lake.

Botanical Gardens – Gardens Aglow 2020

Eldercare Network staff had the opportunity to take residents on an outing this week to Boothbay Botanical Gardens’ Gardens Aglow 2020, a fantastic display of many thousands of festive Christmas Lights and features.

Gardens Aglow is hailed as the biggest and brightest display of Holiday Lights in New England, featuring over 650,000 LED lights.

This year the tour is a driving one, for safety of all concerned due to Covid-19, but this didn’t diminish the beauty and the fun had by all.

ECN staff are doing their best to maintain as much normalcy as possible for the residents while keeping everyone safe.

Staff at Round Pond Green set up decorations and, while using appropriate social distancing, were able to hand out candy to local children. The residents enjoyed seeing the children in costumes and providing happiness at a distance.
