A Monthly Look Inside Aravilla Clearwater

Happy New Year!

Aravilla Clearwater senior residents outdoor adventureHappy New Year!!! Welcome to 2023! Out with the old and in with the new. This year we will be introducing new fun ideas and activities to Aravilla. Stay tuned with our calendar for upcoming new events & activities! We will continue to be taking the residents out on “Aravilla Adventures”, in our passenger bus every Tuesday and Thursday at 1:45pm. We are encouraging family members to come with us on these outings! Family quality time is important for our residents. Nature parks, beach walks, even just for some ice cream. Nothing is more important than our Aravilla Family coming together to create special memories. If you are interested in joining our future Aravilla Adventures, please let Selene, our Life Enrichment Director, know so we can plan accordingly and reserve your seat!

Successful Christmas Events!

Last month our gracious little ‘Santa Helpers”, the students at McMullen Booth Elementary School, came to perform Christmas Carols live in the Promenade! After their performance, the kindergarteners handed out special Christmas gifts for all of our residents. Everyone received hand-made Christmas cards and magnets with motivational quotes! Be ready for the next time these wonderful kindergarteners come by to our community again, on our monthly calendar! We also want to thank all of the families, friends and employees who came to celebrate our second annual Resident Holiday Party. It was a huge success and a lot of fun. Everyone got to enjoy delicious hors d’oeuvres, desserts and festive refreshments while listening to live entertainment in our courtyard! Mr. & Mrs. Claus were also very pleased to be able to stop by our community for family pictures.

Resident Spotlight: Luz V.

We want to take a moment to recognize Luz V. as a part of our Aravilla Family. Luz was born 1931 in Manati, Puerto Rico. After graduating from Highschool, she moved to a small town called Ciales which is located on the central mountain range of Puerto Rico. Luz was married in 1962. She has 5 children, 3 boys and 2 girls. Her children then had kids of their own making her a very proud grandmother of 10. Her love for children didn’t end there as she now has a total of 14 great grandchildren! Mrs. V. was a home maker! She loved to cook and clean and take care of her children. Apart from working at home, Luz
worked in the medical field for some time. She worked in hospitals as a receptionist. Luz’s favorite hobbies include: dancing, long car rides, and traveling. She’s traveled to Canada, Mexico, Spain, and most of the East Coast of the United States. But most of all, her favorite hobby was going on cruises! Luz is a very sweet and loving lady who you will always find in the promenade during our live entertainment! Fun Fact: Do you know what Luz means in English? Luz means Light!
