Residents of Middletown Health Center, families are “together again”



MIDDLETOWN – Wadsworth Glen Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center hosted a holiday celebration this month so residents’ families can reunite at a late party that was canceled in December due to the pandemic.

Dubbed “Christmas in July,” the July 29 event marked more than a year of separation made necessary by the COVID-19 epidemic, according to a press release.

The event kicked off with residents of Wadsworth Glen and their families singing Christmas carols, led by Recreation Director Lauren Agnelli, after which guests enjoyed activities including a visit from Santa, cookie decorating, as well as Christmas trivia and bingo.

The event was part of a series of ‘Together Again’ events organized by Athena Health Care Systems, which operates nursing homes across the region.

“This past year has been a challenge for our residents and their families, and that is why we are creating these special moments where loved ones can safely spend time together in our centers,” said Larry Santilli , President and CEO of Athena. in a prepared statement.
