VERO BEACH, Fla., Nov. 17, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — The significance of Veterans Day was met with honor at Market Street Memory Care Residence Viera last week as veterans and veteran spouses received special recognition and appreciation.
Residents, associates and family members of Market Street Viera gathered with their neighbors from Indian River Colony Club, a military community, to pay their respects with a patriotic ceremony. Teresa Ortiz recognized each veteran in their respective branches of the military, thanking them for their service and sacrifice. Market Street Viera veterans proudly stood alongside their military photos displayed on the community’s Veterans Wall of Honor, which was ceremoniously unveiled last November.
Executive Chef Manny served an array of traditional, savory Thanksgiving dishes followed with a variety of mouth-watering pies. Resident veterans’ spotlights were displayed throughout the room and live music by Fred Cavese filled the air as guests enjoyed the feast.
“These events are heartwarming and nostalgic for our residents, but also a critical aspect of our programming as the traditional sights and sounds of a patriotic ceremony are significant in sparking memories for our residents living with Alzheimer’s and dementia,” says Christine Heaton, Senior Memory Care Director for Watercrest Viera.
