La Posada, a Kisco Senior Living community, is delighted to announce its hospitality training partnership with Forbes Travel Guide. Associates are undergoing specialized hospitality training to assist them in providing five-star service to residents, family members and anyone who steps through the door. La Posada is the second Kisco senior living community in the country to participate in this program. To signify the completion of initial training, as well as the ongoing commitment to the Forbes’ Luxury Hospitality Standards Training Program, Forbes recently presented a plaque to La Posada. The partnership helps current and future associates enhance service skills in order to elevate the resident and guest experience.

“We conduct training every day. Teams meet to discuss service standards and associates roleplay ways to handle and address situations in which they implement their learnings,” said Brad Cadiere, executive director of La Posada. “Associates feel a sense of pride and accomplishment, and residents feel like the most important part of our community as a result of this, which they are. Residents have noticed the increased focus on hospitality and have written many more feedback cards thanking us for the excellent service and care. It is amazing to take part in such an impactful initiative.”

Every current associate has undergone and will continue to participate in the training. New associates will complete a two-and-a-half-hour orientation on the training and service standards and participate in ongoing training. The integration of world-class training will sustain a culture of service excellence for years to come.

“Kisco is a pioneer in the senior living industry,” said Brian Grandbouche, senior vice president of operations for Kisco Senior Living. “We are the first senior living company to partner with Forbes Travel Guide, and The Luxury Hospitality Standards Training Program positively impacts many of the Kisco Senior Living communities. While Kisco has maintained an excellent reputation for providing quality service to seniors for more than 25 years, as we look to the future, we recognize the need to build on our already strong foundation. This program takes our service standards to the next level and empowers associates to anticipate and fulfill resident and guest needs without requiring approval or guidance from upper management. I have yet to see a senior living company take hospitality to this level.”

La Posada is the second Kisco senior living community in the nation to partner with Forbes Travel Guide. The Cardinal at North Hills, a Kisco Senior Living community located in Raleigh, was the pilot community.

“It is an honor to work with Kisco Senior Living again, this time at the La Posada community,” said Filip Boyen, CEO of Forbes Travel Guide. “Kisco is the very first in the senior living industry to do this kind of hospitality service training. La Posada’s dedication to providing service excellence to residents deserves praise, and we look forward to helping Kisco achieve their goals with our training services.”

La Posada, a Kisco Senior Living community, is excited to invite its residents and members of the public to participate in a new educational program. The Wellness Speaker Series features special guests who will discuss important senior-related topics. La Posada is passionate about being a resource to seniors in the surrounding community, as well as to residents who call La Posada home. The first speaker is Scott Greenberg, CEO of ComForcare Senior Services, a private-duty, non-medical home health care agency serving Palm Beach, Martin, St. Lucie and Indian River counties. Host of the radio show “Oh My God, I’m Getting Older and So Is My Mom” and author of the book by the same name, Greenberg seeks to empower seniors by sharing his knowledge in an entertaining and educational format. He will deliver a presentation highlighting many topics found in his book on November 28 at 2:00 p.m. at La Posada (11900 Taylor Drive in Palm Beach Gardens). The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session.

 

“We are thrilled to welcome Scott to our community later this month because we believe attendees will find his presentation both amusing and insightful,” said Brad Cadiere, executive director of La Posada. “It is not easy to discuss some of the topics that pertain to aging, but Greenberg does a delightful job presenting sometimes challenging topics with a comical twist. We are excited to open our doors to the public to share this opportunity with them as well.” 

 

Some of the subjects are difficult to talk about, so he delivers practical information in a humorous light. Greenberg resides in Jupiter and dedicates his time to helping, educating and preparing seniors – both boomers and their parents – for the possible challenges and difficulties that often accompany aging.  

 

La Posada requests that members of the public RSVP if they wish to attend. You can RSVP by contacting Michelle Cassels, community sales coordinator for La Posada, at (561) 459-5181 or emailing her at michelle.cassels@kiscosl.com.

Senior and their families recently came together to celebrate the opening of Mallorca at La Posada, a premier Kisco Senior Living community. The new lakeside addition was named after Mallorca, an island off the coast of Spain. The event featured a ribbon cutting and remarks from Brad Cadiere, executive director of La Posada, as well as Monti Galmés, a Manacor-native who is considered a pioneer of Mallorcan Tourism for bringing quality and excellence in the amenities of his establishments.

 

Throughout the grand opening, attendees enjoyed live musical entertainment and flamenco dancers, chef-prepared culinary treats, Zumba demonstrations in the wellness center, chair massages from Woodhouse Spa, Black Jack games in the card room, balance machine demonstrations and opportunities to win raffle tickets to be put toward prizes. La Posada was thrilled to give seniors and their families a delight-filled opportunity to explore Mallorca and the rest of the community to get a taste of our approach to The Art of Living Well®.

 

Mallorca is a lakeside addition built to enhance the continuum of care and offer a greater variety of lifestyle choices. It was a part of a $35 million expansion and renovation project which recently opened. Mallorca is a new four-story building featuring 54 sophisticated apartment homes with alcove, one- and two-bedroom floor plans, equipped with full kitchens, washers and dryers, and balconies. With the addition of Mallorca, La Posada residents can now choose from a variety of floor plans, some of which offer up to 2,600 square feet and views of the lake. Residents will benefit from housekeeping services, scheduled transportation, wellness and lifestyles programing, and access to the community’s 5-star rated Health Care Center. Amenities in Mallorca include a restaurant, pub, salon and spa, fitness space and various indoor and outdoor areas to socialize.

 

“The addition of Mallorca gives current and future residents more choices when it comes to exploring life, focusing on wellness, socializing and enjoying new experiences,” said Brad Cadiere, executive director of La Posada. “Now, there is an assortment of new apartments, as well as indoor and outdoor amenities all designed to enhance the active lifestyles of all who live within our 22-acre campus.

Many people look at competitions as a way to compare their abilities with others, but one 96-year-old man in Palm Beach Gardens is only competing with himself. George Heller, a spry, active Jewish resident of La Posada (a premier senior living community) says that every time he works out or competes in wellness challenges he tries to outdo himself and beat his previous records. He always focuses on self-improvement. From daily exercise goals to NuStep Challenges to rowing competitions and race-walking marathons, Heller has set personal and public records for the last several decades. Though not a famous athlete, he is an inspiration to others around him.

 

“I have not always been a gym rat and haven’t always gone to such great lengths to take care of my body,” said Heller. “At the age of 55, I was grossly overweight from eating poorly and not being active enough. At the time, I was traveling a lot selling innovative medical supplies, many that helped cardiologists, one of which was one of first battery-operated defibrillator. As I watched other people prepare for open heart surgery, I thought to myself, ‘George that could you be you if you don’t turn your life around and create better, healthier habits for yourself.’ I began working out and eating nutritional food, and I lost 100 pounds that first year. I started with jogging, but I found that race walking was easier on the body and a better alternative for me. I trained and competed all over the world: Puerto Rico, Australia, Oregon and more. I set many records at the time, and I’ll bet you didn’t know the longest race in the Olympics is a 50K race walk.”

 

Heller decided to race walk in the New York Marathon in his late 60s and set a record for his age group. He stopped competing in the 70’s, but still views exercise as obligatory and spends one hour each day doing some form of cardio – whether cycling or using a rowing machine. Burning anywhere from 600 to 900 calories during a one-hour session, he will either ride approximately 23 miles or row approximately 5,000 meters. He discovered his love for rowing last year and has since acquired a rowing machine for his apartment, in addition to the one he uses at the La Posada wellness center. He even competed in a rowing competition run by local police. He finished with the highest record in his division. He rowed 1,000 meters in a mere seven minutes and 55.8 seconds, a new 2017 American record – a fact confirmed by authorities at Concept2. This year, he is proud of himself for completing 8,000 meters without stopping.

 

“No one is going to do the exercises for you, and you just have to find the motivation to do it,” said Heller. “For me, music helps break up the monotony. I YouTube songs that bring back all sorts of memories – Neil Diamond, Josh Grobin, Adele – you name it. Music helps me experience good feelings, happy thoughts and gives me that drive I need. The one thing I have always valued and worked toward is endurance. Having the right music and the right attitude all helps me attain endurance.”

 

In addition to rowing and cycling, Heller participates in a challenge each year that is very close to his heart. After losing his wife who lived with dementia in her final years, he sought to help raise awareness and funds for the Alzheimer’s Association by participating in the NuStep Challenge for The Longest Day. This summer in one day, he completed 11,004 steps on the NuStep in just under 100 minutes.

 

“Staying active and working out makes me feel energized and full of life,” said Heller. “My 97th birthday will be in April, and I’m shooting to live to at least 100. I come from a family with a history of poor cardiovascular health. I must be doing something right to have lived this long and maintained the ability to hit the gym. I do work out with a heart monitor, so I can make sure I stay within my zone. Being fit and healthy isn’t just about being free of diseases or physically in shape, it is about creating a situation where you can continue living the way you want to live.”

While some people have qualms about getting older, others think aging should be celebrated because it is an opportunity that not everyone will experience. The best way to age gracefully is to stay active. Recognizing the importance of leading an enriching lifestyle during one’s senior years, the International Council on Active Aging (ICAA) created National Active Aging Week in 2003. According to the ICAA, Active Aging Week challenges society’s negative expectations of aging by showing that regardless of age or health conditions, adults over 50 can live as fully as possible in all areas of life – physical, social, spiritual, emotional, intellectual, vocational and environmental. La Posada, a Kisco Senior Living community, recently presented residents with a weeklong series of events and activities and celebrated their dedication to living an active and vibrant lifestyle in recognition of Active Aging Week.  

 

“The concept of Active Aging Week ties in perfectly with La Posada’s The Art of Living Well® philosophy, which is featured in every aspect of community life and presents unique social and wellness opportunities that strengthen the mind, body and spirit,” said Brad Cadiere, executive director of La Posada. “Active aging is about more than moving the body around and attending exercise classes. There are many dimensions of wellness to engage in, and our community’s wellness director, Rick Minichino, has coordinated a beneficial event, activity or program each day for our residents.”

 

The theme of this year’s Active Aging Week was “Inspiring Wellness.” The weeklong campaign is recognized during the last week of September and wholeheartedly celebrates the positivity of aging today. La Posada residents chose from the following highlighted activities and others: a painting class, a healthy cooking demonstration, a memory and aging lecture, as well as a health fair.

Dorothy Weiss, a resident of La Posada, a premier senior living community, has been practicing ballroom dancing since she was 13 years old. She and her friends were inseparable, and one summer they started getting together in a finished basement to put on big band records and dance. Ballroom dancing has been an integral part of her life ever since. When she married and started a family, she and her husband would have weekly date nights to go out dancing. They took lessons together as part of an adult education program through the local elementary school. Now, Weiss is eager to pick up her weekly routine with the start of a new series of ballroom dance lessons happening on select Fridays at 1:30 p.m. at La Posada.

 

“Growing up, it meant a great deal to have a date with a boy and go to a ball in the city,” said Weiss. “All the glamorous hotels put on social dances in elaborate ballrooms and brought in popular big bands. It was the number one event we looked forward to when we were young. It’s still the highlight of my life. I am such an advocate for ballroom dancing, as I feel it lifts peoples’ spirits, provides physical and mental health benefits and brings people joy. We are so fortunate to have a truly talented and passionate dance instructor at La Posada. One day she suffered a major accident and didn’t know if she would ever walk again. Surprisingly, she began practicing dance techniques, which helped her learn to walk again. After this experience, she felt seniors would really benefit from similar exercises, so she started volunteering at our community to lead the classes.”

 

The instructor took the last year off from teaching to travel but is eager to pick up where she left off at the senior living community. Weiss encourages fellow residents to try something new, reasoning that the music will make them want to move to it. Outside of the ballroom dance classes, La Posada hosts different themed dances throughout the year, during which the community brings in male ballroom dancers for ladies who don’t have a partner. Residents and invited guests dance for hours as a big band featuring musicians play toe-tapping, arm-swinging tune after tune.

 

“My favorite dances are the Latin ones: the Cha Cha, Rumba and Merengue. I also enjoy the Fox Trot and the Waltz,” said Weiss. “I’ve always had a passion for music and dancing. There was a point in time I used a walker for rehabilitation. As I regained my strength, I listened to a Jane Fonda tape and felt like I was dancing instead of walking. I’ve always felt the music, music is the rhythm of my soul.”

 

“Ballroom dancing has many benefits for those who participate,” said Rick Minichino, wellness director at La Posada. “The class itself is uplifting and fun, and there’s a social aspect from everyone coming together to learn, practice and create memories. Ballroom dancing is a type of exercise that burns fat and strengthens bones and joints. The movements also improve muscle tone, flexibility, conditioning and endurance. The creative outlet is equally healthy for the brain, as attendees need to learn different sequences of footwork. Some residents have ballroom danced their whole lives while others are trying it out for the first time. It’s like we have our own ‘Dancing with the Stars’ group here at La Posada, and it’s inspiring to watch.”

On June 21 from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., dozens of residents and associates of La Posada (the premier senior living community of Palm Beach Gardens) paired up to take thousands of steps on the community’s NuStep recumbent cross trainer to raise funds and awareness for Alzheimer’s and dementia. This was a part of a nationwide NuStep Challenge held every year for The Longest Day: a day that seeks to not only raise awareness, but to pay tribute to the strength, passion and endurance of those living with Alzheimer’s, their families and their caregivers. The event takes place on the summer solstice, which is the longest day of the year. Teams across the nation participate in sunrise-to-sunset events to honor those who live the longest day every day. The Alzheimer’s Association encourages people all over the world to form teams and choose an activity they enjoy, or one loved by those affected and do it from sunrise to sunset – whether it's NuStepping, bike riding, bowling, cooking, walking, playing video games or classic board games, dancing, hiking or playing music.

 

“We were determined to exercise and will keep two NuStep machines going for 12 consecutive hours,” said Rick Minichino, wellness director for La Posada. “NuStep machines are recumbent cross trainers which provide a full-body workout. Residents and associates of La Posada, as well as friends and family, pledged any amount of money per hour to raise funds and awareness for Alzheimer's. La Posada has raised more than $12,000 for the Alzheimer's Association since 2015. My father-in-law passed away from Alzheimer’s disease in 2016 after a seven-year battle, so this cause is very close to my heart, as well as the hearts of many who live and work at La Posada.”

 

Today, more than 35 million people across the world are living with Alzheimer's, including more than five million Americans. In the United States alone, more than 15 million caregivers generously dedicate themselves to those with Alzheimer's and dementia, and these numbers will continue to rise. The NuStepping to End Alzheimer’s challenge was initiated by NuStep Inc., a manufacturer of inclusive recumbent cross trainers, in 2015. Last year, 203 “NuStepping to End Alzheimer’s” teams across the country stepped up to the challenge and raised over $250,000 to support The Alzheimer’s Association.

 

“One year, I did the entire NuStep challenge on my own and only took five-minute breaks if people paid $20 for them,” said Minichino. “I’ve never felt so challenged and determined in my life. I am glad I can use the inspiration from that accomplishment to encourage everyone on our campus to come together to make an impact. Together, we can show those facing Alzheimer's they are not alone. We see the impact of Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia firsthand as we care for residents in our memory care neighborhood. Donations, no matter how small, give hope to those affected by Alzheimer's disease.”

 

Astounding statistics about Alzheimer’s disease provided by the Alzheimer’s Association:

•             Alzheimer’s is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States.

•             Every 66 seconds someone in the U.S. develops the disease.

•             More than five million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s.

•             One in the three seniors die from Alzheimer’s or some form of dementia.

•             In 2016, 15.9 million family and friends provided 18.2 billion hours of unpaid assistance to those with Alzheimer's and other dementias, a contribution to the nation valued at $230.1 billion.

 

“The shocking reality is that Alzheimer’s disease is currently the only leading cause of death in the U.S. which cannot be prevented, cured or even slowed,” said Brad Cadiere, executive director of La Posada. “As a continuing care retirement community, we are on the front line helping those living with the disease, and we view ourselves as advocates for these residents. We hope that with the proper funding and research, Alzheimer’s can eventually be managed, slowed down or even cured. Raising money and awareness will not only help fund research and development, it also empowers others to keep their bodies and minds healthy and to get checked early for signs and symptoms. By partnering associates with residents, raised more money and awareness and do our part to fight Alzheimer’s disease.”

Taking in the desolated burnt ruins of the building in which he used to create beautiful works of art, Riis Burwell didn’t imagine anything salvageable remained in the mound of debris. Last fall, he was among the many Californians impacted by a series of wildfires which ripped through the North Bay, killing nearly four dozen people and destroying thousands of buildings and homes, including Burwell’s art studio. Miraculously, his sculpture titled “Spirit Form Emerging” was the only piece of art that survived. The sculpture itself is a reflection on the transitory nature of life, going from one state of existence to another. La Posada, the premier retirement community in Palm Beach Gardens, is now the permanent home for the piece. The community recently unveiled the bronze sculpture displayed in front of the La Posada campus. This piece is a part of Palm Beach Garden’s Art in Public Places program. Mayor Maria Marino and Palm Beach Gardens City Council members were in attendance.

 

“This is the first sculpture I created for a senior living community,” said Burwell. “I am thrilled that the public can enjoy this piece in a beautiful community whose residents represent livelihood and an exploration of life’s experiences. The sculpture was originally created to commemorate the lives lost when planes struck the Twin Towers on September 11. When the towers collapsed, 3,000-plus lives were instantly evaporated, and I imagined the cloud of debris that came up as a likeness of their spirits transforming and rising. This piece is the third version, and it carries new meaning, signifying lives lost during the recent natural disaster and the rebirth of cities and homes. It also emphasizes the transitory stages of life we all experience as human beings.”

 

The fires that engulfed his studio burned through 30 miles in just a six-hour period. Burwell said it looked like a blowtorch took out Santa Rosa. He describes the survival of the sculpture as a godsend. It took Burwell a month to pull Spirit Form Emerging from the debris. Once the piece was accessible, he spent two to three months finishing it. The sculpture foundation in the San Francisco Bay area allowed him to use their spacious workspace while he rebuilt his studio. Burwell is thrilled to attend the unveiling of the sculpture, as this piece is incredibly meaningful to him.

 

“When we saw the image of Riis’ original sculpture, we knew that it would be a perfect representation of La Posada and the City of Palm Beach Gardens’ dynamic spirit. It is also a manifestation of our community’s multiple dimensions of wellness,” said Patrice Goldberg, director of interior design for Kisco Senior Living. “Kisco Senior Living communities are unique representations of mature life, and our goal was to provide a modern, sophisticated public art piece to reflect just that. This sculpture imparts a grace, dignity and balance that we want everyone to relate to in one form or another – though we understand everyone will interpret the work in their own way.”

 

“La Posada is pleased to contribute to the Art in Public Places program, which was developed by the city of Palm Beach Gardens to ensure that as businesses grow and prosper, so does the appeal and collection of public, accessible art,” said Brad Cadiere, executive director of La Posada. “In addition to providing art on-site, we have also designed an artistic bus shelter located at the main entrance of the community. We are grateful to the City’s Arts Advisory Board and the City Council for their help in approving our art proposal, as we feel it will greatly benefit the residents of La Posada and those living in the surrounding community.”
