VFV’s mission is to support returning veterans during their readjustment from military to civilian life. VFV’s goal is to provide safe and positive transitional housing providing a mixture of camaraderie, life skills, as well as educational and employment opportunities. VFV supports veterans during this challenging transition by helping to identify and recognize their valuable military skill set, and assists them in translating those skills into applicable civilian-life skills. In addition, VFV’s veterans stand committed to providing needed assistance to the elder veterans and families in their communities.

Wii Bowling

National Senior Wii Bowling League

Frederick Living entered five teams into the National Senior Wii Bowling League. We are now in our third week of reporting scores and three of the five teams Frederick entered are in first place in their respective divisions! More than 120 communities are participating from around the United States, making up 320 teams, and over 1,600 seniors are registered on teams. Teams play in their own community, so no traveling is involved. What a fun way to interact with other communities, as well as working on hand eye coordination, balance and social interaction! The season will run for four to seven more weeks, with a playoff format like the NCAA Final Four- you win, you play on. We would like to wish our five teams good luck in the remaining weeks.

Art Show

Resident and Staff Art Show at Frederick Living

This new art exhibit features the work of our Independent Living, Personal Care, and Skilled Nursing residents and staff. Acrylics, watercolor, and oil paints are featured in the show.

Some of the work featured is from residents who were professional artists before residing at Frederick Living. Other art work is from residents and staff who participate in our Drawing Class and Painting Class on Monday afternoons, taught by local artist and teacher, Fran Wieckowski.

Fran encourages the participants to paint subjects that they love and express themselves through their paintings. Some participants choose replicas such as Van Gogh and others bring their own ideas.

The exhibit features a variety of subjects such as landscapes and animals and is open to the public through the end of April. Family, friends, residents, and staff are welcome to join the artists for an Art Reception on Monday, March 16 at 1:30 PM outside the Body Shop.
