Nursing Home News ~ July 2010



Congratulations are in order...

Huy Pham was recently accepted into medical school at Florida State University! Congratulations, Huy!

Friends Across the Ages would like to thank Huy for his exceptional service as Administrative Coordinator and his dedication as a volunteer at Signature Health Care. Huy has a passion for geriatrics and hopes to pursue a career in this area of medicine. We are proud of his accomplishments and wish him the very best!

With that being said, we would like to introduce to you our newest Administrative Coordinator. Heather Geidel has been a volunteer with Friends Across the Ages since the fall of 2006. She is currently a graduate student in the University of Florida’s Occupational Therapy program and continues to volunteer at Park Meadows Health and Rehabilitation Center.


We thank you all for your patience and understanding during this time of transition!


Congratulations to Jon and Keri Shinn!

Friends Across the Ages would like to congratulate the Shinns on the newest addition to their family!

Alden Thomas Shinn was born at the Shinn’s home on June 8th and weighed 8lbs 1oz. Welcome, Alden!

Students- please send us your summer addresses!

Attention, all student volunteers! We are getting ready to send out our next “snail mail” newsletter in just a few weeks. Please send us your current address if you would like to receive a copy. We hope you are all enjoying your summer break. We look forward to seeing you again in the fall!



Thursday, July 8th, 1:30PM - “Storytellers Society” at Parklands- These group gatherings are a wonderful way to share, reminisce and truly get to know the residents at Parklands Nursing and Rehab.

Thursday, July 15th, 1:30 PM - Casino Time at Parklands -- A monthly event at Parklands Nursing and Rehab – By popular demand, Steve visits Parklands to deal blackjack and poker for the residents (who play for prizes).  He can always use some extra dealers, so let us know if you’d like to come join the fun!

Thursday, July 29th, 2:30 PM - Birthday Celebration -- Help us wish a happy birthday to all residents of Parklands Nursing and Rehab with birthdays in July. Meet us in the dining room where we will have singing and cake. Volunteers are needed to help gather the residents together, serve the cake, sing, clean up, etc.  Do you play an instrument or have some other talent?  We are always looking for new entertainment for the party – let us know! 



Please see the above list for locations of all nursing home events. Directions to the nursing homes can be found at:

Events are open to everyone (children are welcome at most events; please inquire first). Please contact us and let us know the events that you will be attending, so that our coordinators may be on the lookout for you.   Please call 352-381-1117 or e-mail us at
