Fathers and father figures are often pillars of wisdom, knowledge and advice in our lives. As we gear up to celebrate father’s day in our communities, we asked our residents to share what fatherhood means to them, or what their relationship with their father taught them. Here are just some of the heart warming and inspiring stories from across our communities.
“Our debt to the heroic men and valiant women in the service of our country can never be repaid. They have earned our undying gratitude. America will never forget their sacrifices.”
- Harry S. Truman
For many of us, Memorial Day is the holiday that we think of as the official start of summer, and we celebrate with barbecues, garden parties, backyard bashes, or trips to the beach. However, we recognize that there is much more to this holiday than picnics and potato salad.
My own mother was a saint in my eyes. She sacrificed, she served, and she loved unconditionally. For me and my family, she was the heart beat of the home and the center of it all. Mothers are often seen as a unifying pulse in the family and are thought to be one of the most powerful role models in our lives, capable of immense kinds of love and protection. One can hardly imagine the level of sacrifice a mother is possible of making in a time of need.
May 6th marks National Nurses Day 2022, and the start of National Nurses Week. At Pacifica Senior Living, our nurses are the heartbeat of our communities, and essential to ensuring the very best care and wellbeing of our residents. We greatly appreciate all that our nurses do across our many communities, and the dedication and hard work they put in each and every day.
We asked our nurses to share with you some of the best things about being part of the Pacifica family, and how their lives have been impacted by the amazing residents they care for. Here is what they had to say:
Earth Day is a time to reflect on and appreciate our amazing planet. It is a time to celebrate and a chance to evaluate the way in which we are treating our environment. At Pacifica Senior Living, we are committed to choosing eco-friendly options, sustainable power sources, and moving towards a greener, brighter future for our communities and our company as a whole.
Over the last few years, we have embarked on a green initiative that has seen many of our communities turning to more eco-friendly options in a variety of ways. It is something that we are always conscious of and trying to improve on as we continue to grow.
It’s February, which means it’s time for the winners of the NFL’s two conferences -- the AFC and the NFC -- to battle it out in the epic sporting event that is the annual Super Bowl.
Pacifica Senior Living is celebrating the Lunar New Year: The Year of the Tiger which falls on February 5th, this year.
Participate in exciting festivities and experience the traditional Lunar New Year traditions celebrated by different nationalities across Asia. We invite you to participate and enjoy our special Lunar New Year celebrations, as we welcome the Year of the Tiger!
The Lunar New Year festival is a popular public holiday in countries such as Vietnam, China, Korea, and Japan. Throughout Asia, the festival attracts millions of visitors each year who take part in social celebrations and festivities, bursting with typical Chinese cultural performances and activities that are linked to local tradition.
Chinese astrology assigns meaning to each year, in line with each year’s symbolic animal. Some people belong to the year of the tiger, such as those born in 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, and 2000. Those born in the year of the Tiger are said to be fierce and unpredictable during competition. In 2022, we are celebrating this Tiger spirit, as we see what the next 365 days hold.
Celebrate the Chinese New Year with a traditional slice of the popular pineapple cake. Deliciously moist, this rich pineapple cake is filled with a tangy pineapple cream cheese frosting and then topped with lightly toasted macadamia nuts, creating an irresistible indulgence.
The New Year is an exceptionally joyful time, and Pacifica is the perfect place to celebrate the Chinese New Year and usher in the New Year of the Tiger. From our festive menu items to our Lunar New Year-inspired decor, you'll be transported to another realm of appreciation, participation, and fulfillment as you reign in the #YearOfTheTiger with Pacifica Senior Living.
