January, 2017

Video is desired as an entertainment and communication source and a major success factor for businesses to be found online.  The Fairport-Perinton Chamber of Commerce’s January Business of the Month understands these concepts and so do their senior residents.

The Maplewood Estates, 55 Ayrault Road in Fairport, is owned by Holiday Retirement.  This corporation is the founder of independent living for seniors, started in 1971.  Here in Fairport, The Maplewood Estates opened in 1999.  They are the January Fairport-Perinton Chamber Business of the Month.

This community is family oriented.  Residents reside in studio, one and two-bedroom apartments and have access to a large dining area and a private dining room.  These larger spaces can accommodate extended family gatherings, which are encouraged.  Guests can stay over night too.  The staff reinforces this family atmosphere as they interact with residents and other staff members.  They are also ready to respond to the physical needs of residents and staff through the service of a full-time nurse, from Interim Health Care.

Now for the video ~ Holiday Retirement held a regional dance competition and Maplewood won first place!  Ravan Cozan-Pierce is the Maplewood Activities Director who led the challenge.  Twenty residents participated, learning two dances to two song titles:  New York New York; I’m Sexy and I Know It. In keeping with the “family” culture, families also joined in on the fun. The prize - - $500.00!  View the action at:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ecPMvp6otBw
