Tanglewood Group prides themselves in the encouraged independence and individuality of each resident. Most of our residents are proud of the place they call home and are excited to invite their family and friends to experience the things they look forward to each day. Each facility has a “bistro”, which is a beautifully decorated kitchen setting where residents and loved ones can have private a “family style” meal. Tanglewood Manor as well as Frewsburg Rest Home have functional kitchens available for family get-togethers where they can even cook a meal with their loved one. This is a great way to accommodate several guests while the resident can stay in the comfort of their own home. Hosting a get-together, setting the table, preparing refreshments, giving a “grand tour” of the building, these are all things that promote independence and a continued sense of pride, which is the main goal of the Tanglewood Group as a whole.
Each season brings opportunity for picnics and holiday parties, all of which loved ones are invited to and encouraged to join. During the summer months, each facility hosts several outdoor picnics with traditional barbeque foods and a fun, family-friendly atmosphere. In August, Tanglewood Manor and Memory Garden host their annual Fishing Tournament and BBQ in the Louis Ferreri Memorial Park. There are 3 cash prizes awarded to each resident, family member and staff who catch the biggest fish. Frewsburg Rest Home will be hosting their first Pig Roast Luau in August for residents and their loved ones to enjoy the last bit of summer with a Hawaiian spin. Each facility hosts holiday meals for Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter with full menus where loved ones are invited to join in our own traditions and family celebrations.
Having continued support from loved ones is so important and each facility within the Tanglewood Group does their best to incorporate family involvement any way they can.
