A Christmas (in July) to Remember

August 18, 2020
+

This Friday, August 21, 2020, is National Senior Citizens Day, and due to COVID-19 and the resulting government social distancing and visitation restrictions at Concordia’s facilities, many families have been wondering how to best celebrate and show appreciation to their senior citizen loved ones. Last month, the virtual VBS (vacation bible school) at one of Concordia Lutheran Ministries’ member churches, Ascension Lutheran Church in McCandless, PA, exemplified a great way to bring smiles to our residents and patients (and amazing staff!): by making crafts and videos for Christmas in July celebrations at Concordia of Franklin Park and Concordia at the Orchard!

Concordia Calendar Artist Profile: Elizabeth Spohn

August 11, 2020

In 2019, Concordia’s calendar featured amazing resident artists – some who studied art in college and made a career out of it, some who won awards for their paintings and even those who always enjoyed art but didn’t truly get to paint until coming to Concordia. The good news is that the first group only scratched the surface of the talent found at Concordia. For 2020, our calendar features gorgeous paintings from 11 new artists.

Titled “Brush Strokes 2,” the calendar features a different painting each month by a resident who lives at one of our locations. And each month, we’ll introduce you to the artist, here. August’s artist is Elizabeth Spohn of the Concordia Haven Apartments on the Concordia at Cabot campus.

The Benefits of Aquatic Therapy in Rehabilitation

July 28, 2020

According to the CDC, over 3 million senior adults in the U.S. are treated in emergency rooms for fall-related injuries each year. Of that figure, one in five seniors will have a serious injury resulting in increased health problems later on. One of the most common ways to reduce fall risk as well as promote recovery after a fall or injury is improving gait and balance. This can be done with therapeutic exercise and strength training; however, for many seniors, exercises can be a stress on joints and muscle fibers.
