New Year’s Eve Party Reminder

Just a friendly reminder that our New Year’s Eve festivities start at 4:30 next Tuesday in the lobby with appetizers YUM!!! :D After nibbling for a bit, the dining room of Seasons Restaurant opens at five where we’ll all be entertained by our favorite duo of entertainers, The Riverboat Ramblers! So stop on by Suffield by the River next Tuesday for our New Year’s Eve party and we’ll ring in the New Year, Suffield by the River style :)

Happy Holidays from SBTR

We all had a wonderful time at last night’s 2013 Holiday Party. Thank you all for coming and spreading good cheer, happiness and warm wishes as you do throughout the entire year. It gives me so much pleasure to own Suffield by the River and I hope you feel the same about living and spending time here. :)



15th Anniversary

Thank you to everybody who showed up to celebrate our 15th Anniversary. You can check out the photos on our Facebook page (videos to follow; you might be surprised by some of our rockers and rollers :D ) as well as on our website in our gallery. We have loved every second since we opened our sliding doors more than 15 years ago (well, maybe not EVERY second; the Alfred/Halloween Storm was a bit much, but it did bring with it the good fortune of introducing us to the wonderful Fosters — Joyce, and her late husband Warren) and we would not be the type of caring, loving, and festive environment without the help of you all:

From our dear residents who are the reason we started in the first place, to Shawn Leonard and his maintenance staff for literally keeping the place up and running while keeping Suffield by the River beautiful (“there’s always something to do,”), to Caryl Bills and her staff of nurses and aides who keep everybody as happy as possible and seem always to be able to put a smile on people’s faces (except for June ;) ) to Liz Sansom and her recreation staff who are just as good at making people “turn that frown upside down,” (except when she is compelling residents to dream of her demise during her thrice weekly exercise sessions), of course who can forgot our Executive Chef Carlos Gutierrez and his staff who keep everybody’s stomachs full (maybe they are too good at their jobs), Jacki Berriman and her kitchen staff for getting that scrumptious food to the tables with a smile on their faces, especially since they have to serve everyone ALL THE TIME and never get a break :( (and congratulations to new mommie Kristy Preli), our amazing staff at River’s Watch for all the great work that they put in day in, day out, night in and night out from recreation (Karen Frawley) to nursing (Andrea et al), as well as our Assistant Executive Director Karen Isabelle who is currently slaving over the Christmas Tree decorations and has been here since before the doors opened. There are too many to name (like Mark Tomasello, a.k.a. “The Ghost,” the ever talented Leslie Phelps who keeps everybody looking pretty even when they might not feel it, Sue Soucie who has been here for more than a decade and always greets people with a smile, Barbara Catania who has been with us for 15–FIFTEEN–years, Kathy Tirone who is actually, somehow on year 16 (!) as well and is always sad and moping around the building ;) And a special thanks to Jean Collins who retired after 14 1/2 years of dedicated service and we wish her the best in her retirement).

We know we left some names off, but the people who have made Suffield by the River what it is and will continue to be are too numerous to name here.  If we forgot anybody, sincerely forgive us, as always we try our best and hope you stick around for another 15 years.

And most especially, thank you again so much to our residents and families for choosing Suffield by the River and placing your trust in us.  We strive every day to earn that trust.

P.S. Jake hopes everyone enjoyed their Suffield by the River candy dishes, and if you think you got snubbed on the candy dishes, he doesn’t want to hear it :P
