We are excited to announce our new program to the activities calendar. Rehab and Activities have teamed up to create the Wellness Group. This group will be an exercise program where the rehab team and the activities team work together to keep our residents mobile and active. Wellness Group will be an updated version of the activities exercise program, and will include weights, walking, and muscle building. We hope this program will reduce falls and continue to make the Elizabeth Seton Residents mobile and active for a many years to come. If you see us please join in and ask questions, we are excited to be bringing departments together to better the health and fitness of the residents here at Elizabeth Seton.
We were delighted and honored to
welcome the college students from the Tokyo University of Social Welfare Japan
for a visit to Elizabeth Seton Residence again this year.
The students spent 4 weeks here in the States. They visited New York for two weeks and Boston for
two weeks, learning about our culture and areas in our medical field. The
students are studying Social Work and Psychology in Japan. They expressed how
it is very interesting to learn how things are in America vs. Japan and how
different they can be from New York to Boston. When they arrived at Elizabeth
Seton Residence they were met by Nicolette (activities director) and welcomed to the building. She brought the
students to Madonna Hall where they were addressed by Lori Ferrante and Mike
Hamilton. Mike talked about the social workers role here at ESR and they both
answered questions about eldercare. The students then toured the building and met some of the nursing
staff. After the tour they spent time with the residents where they taught
origami. The residents enjoyed this activity very much. They folded away and made
amazing designs. Smiles and laughter filled the room for the afternoon.

The Sonshine Choir was here on July 18, 2017. Over 80 high school students from Brentwood United Methodist Church just outside of Nashville, TN, performed for the campus, while travelling the New England area. The entire campus enjoyed their performance and the meet and greet afterwards. We are all hoping they come to New England again soon.
Hello and welcome to our new Director of Nursing, Rose DiMonda! Rose comes to us with a wealth of nursing experience and a commitment to compassionate, quality care.
The Elizabeth Seton Residence has been recognized as a 2017 recipient of the Bronze – Commitment to Quality Award for its dedication to improving the lives of residents through quality care. The distinction is one of three progressive award levels through the National Quality Award Program, presented by the American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL), the leading association for long term and post-acute care. The program honors association members across the nation that have demonstrated their commitment to improving quality of care for seniors and persons with disabilities. The Award Program has three levels: Bronze, Silver, and Gold. Providers begin the quality improvement process at the Bronze level, where they develop an organizational profile with essential performance elements such as vision, mission statement, and key strengths and challenges. Bronze applicants must also demonstrate their ability to implement a performance improvement system. Trained Examiners review each Bronze application to determine if the center has met the demands of the criteria. As a recipient of the Bronze - Commitment to Quality Award, the Elizabeth Seton Residence may now move forward in developing approaches and achieving performance levels that meet the Silver - Achievement in Quality Award criteria.
