Most years residents at St. Johnland celebrate Grandparents Day with a carnival on the grounds. But, in order to comply with social distancing, we brought the carnival to the residents’ rooms instead! Some of the staff dressed as clowns to set the mood as the Carnival Cart rolled into each room. There was cotton candy, fun, and games for everyone. Many residents’ families sent in cards, notes, and photos wishing them well on Grandparents Day (September 10th). As the staff passed out the cards they eagerly engaged the residents in conversations about their grandchildren (and showed off some pictures of their own families as well). Happy Grandparents Day to all our residents and their families!
St. Johnland Nursing Center is recognizing National Nutrition Month throughout March. The month long campaign supported by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics is about educating and encouraging individuals to make informed food choices to maintain a healthy diet.
To celebrate, Chef Frank, Executive Chef at SJNC, along with several members of the Dietary staff have cooking demonstrations and various activities planned for St. Johnland residents to participate in and enjoy over the upcoming weeks. Events include a nutrition trivia game, a “Guess the Grain” contest as well as several opportunities to sample nutritious snacks.
A recent highlight, as seen in the photos below, Chef Frank created a make shift kitchen area in the Resident Dining Hall to demonstrate the preparation of a healthy Pesto Pasta which everyone happily enjoyed a tasting afterwards!
Kings Park, NY – 110 Family and Friends recently gathered at St. Johnland Nursing Center to celebrate its Medical Model Adult Day Health Service Annual Breakfast. Participants who attend the Monday through Saturday program were joined by family and friends for a wonderful morning of food, fun and music. Guests had an opportunity to see the program firsthand and get a glimpse of how their loved one spends a typical day interacting with others and engaging in games and other mindful activities.

St. Johnland Residents donned a cap and gown and rolled down the aisle to celebrate the conclusion of a nine month in house Adult Education program developed by the Nursing Center’s Recreation Therapy staff. Residents voted on topics of interest and staff created course outlines to ensure fun and interactive ways for the “senior” students to continue learning and participate! Course content included TV Shows of Yesteryear, Famous Landmarks, History Trivia, Holiday Traditions, and Famous People. Family, friends and staff were invited to the hour long ceremony that acknowledged each of the graduates with a diploma, speeches were heard from the Salutatorian & Valedictorian and the celebration concluded with balloons in air instead of caps flying in the air. A festive reception of cake and punch followed.
