Merry Christmas from the Brothers of Mercy Wellness Campus. This season, we wish for you the gift of faith, the blessing of hope and the peace of God’s love. May this be yours at Christmas and always. Brothers of Mercy Wellness Campus is incredibly grateful for the support and donations that have been streaming in from so many generous members of our community! Below are some highlights from the Holiday season here at Brothers:
Residents enjoyed the annual tree trimming festivities with Life Enrichment Director Ashlie at Montabaur Heights and the Senior Apartments in early December.
The new Brothers of Mercy Enhanced Assisted Living and Memory Care community opened its doors to residents of our Sacred Heart Home on December 14th! Santa Claus joined team members to welcome all residents to their new home.
Thanks to the generosity of BOM staff and patients, the Outpatient Therapy Clinic’s annual Holiday Donation Drive raised almost $400 to be donated to Oishei Children’s Hospital and the Children’s Miracle Network.
Residents at Brothers of Mercy’s Senior Apartments came together to help a family in need through their annual “Holiday of Hope” drive. They adopted a veteran family through Western NY Heroes and helped make the Christmas of a female veteran, her husband and son one to remember!
Operation Lifting Spirits gifted 125 BOM residents with Christmas Care packages earlier this month. BOM’s Giving Tuesday campaign allowed donors to anonymously send residents a delicious cookie tray or beautiful poinsettia plant Christmas care package, which spread lots of cheer!
Earlier this month, BOM’s staff and residents at the Nursing & Rehab Center enjoyed coffee and cookies that were donated by Goodrich Coffee, Clarence Country Doughnuts, and generous donors from Fueling The Frontlines Buffalo!
The Pink Cow in Alden surprised BOM Senior Apartments residents with care packages. Laura (or “Mama Cow”, as she likes to be called) and her Christmas helpers stopped by earlier this week to deliver thoughtfully crafted care packages.
The Nursing and Rehab Center received beautiful handmade Christmas decorations from a local girl scout troop which have adorned multiple Christmas trees throughout our facility. Nicole Wilcox, who was recently featured on Ch. 2 News, for graciously donating holiday gift bags to our campus. These beautiful gift bags were generously filled with tons of goodies for 40 residents at our Nursing Home, Montabaur and Sacred Heart Home. Thank you to the Pauly family, who made over 150 homemade cards for residents at Montabaur Heights! Michael (age 7), Lizzie (Age 4) and their family are great grandchildren of Louis Pauly and the late Liz Pauly. Thank you to the kind members of Nativity Church for donating $25 Walmart gift cards to Sacred Heart Home! Each resident received these in beautiful handmade Christmas mugs brimming with chocolates!
We all know that Christmas wouldn’t be complete without visits from Santa Claus! Santa has been popping up all over campus this month, most recently at the Nursing and Rehab Center and Montabaur Heights. Thank you to our amazing team members Julie and Paul for dressing up as Santa, plus many other “Elves” and “Santa’s Helpers” for inspiring a lot of joy and laughs amongst our hallways!!
