Bookworms welcomed

Does anyone remember Levar Burton? He was the host of a famous PBS show that aired on June 6, 1983 called The Reading Rainbow.   On this show; Levar Burton; took you into brief synopses of different books to create interest in reading.  The show included animations to induce even more interest in the books he was showcasing.  Before there was computers, internet, cell phones, and video game consuls; there was reading.  Many people enjoy reading still.  Reading has many advantages.  It increases vocabulary, focus, and imagination.  It also improves problem solving, and it can ward off dementia and delirium. For the next few paragraphs I will attempt to do what Levar Burton did on Reading Rainbow, and give you a brief synopses of three books which are fan favorites here at Harmony Social Adult Day Care.

Honeymoon by James Patterson

The honeymoon is over–now the murders can begin. America’s #1 thriller writer returns with his sexiest, scariest novel ever. Hotter than The Beach House and scarier than Kiss the Girls, James Patterson’s explosive new thriller introduces a bride who is beautiful, talented, devoted–and deadly.

When a young investment banker dies of baffling causes, FBI agent John O’Hara immediately suspects the only witness, the banker’s alluring and mysterious fiancee

Nora Sinclair is a beautiful decorator who expects the best, and will do anything to get it. Agent O’Hara keeps closing in, but the stronger his case, the less he knows whether he’s pursuing justice or his own fatal obsession.

In a novel so compelling it reads like a collaboration with Alfred Hitchcock, James Patterson unveils surprise after surprise that will keep readers guessing until the last deadly kiss.

When the wind blows by James Patterson

Frannie O’Neill is a young and talented veterinarian living in Colorado. Plagued by the mysterious murder of her husband, David, a local doctor, Frannie throws herself into her work. It is not long before another bizarre murder occurs and Kit Harrison, a troubled and unconventional FBI agent, arrives on her doorstep.

Late one night, near the woods of her animal hospital, Frannie stumbles upon a strange, astonishing phenomenon that will change the course of her life forever….

Her name is Max.

With breathtaking energy, eleven-year-old Max leads Frannie and Kit to uncover one of the most diabolical and inhuman plots of modern science. When the Wind Blows is as unique a story as has ever been told, filled with suspense and passion. This is by far James Patterson’s best book to date.

Catcher in the rye JD Salinger

This is one of the most remarkable books published in years. It is the story of sixteen year old Holden Caulfield, who wants desperately to find himself, but who goes underground in New York for forty eight hours when he is overwhelmed by the perplexing circumstances of his life. Read the first page and you will not be able to stop until you have completed this wild and magic adventure with him.

Deck the halls with boughs of Harmony

Everyone’s favorite season is right around the corner.  A season packed with incandescent lights, sugar cookies, warm peppermint lattes, Christmas trees, and of course gifts! Who doesn’t love Christmas?! Christmas is more than just material goods, but more importantly it’s a time for family to come together and enjoy quality time with each other.  During this time people all over the world fly, drive, or take other forms of transportation to see their families.  Family should be the most important thing in our lives.  Unfortunately there are many people that don’t have anyone to share this season with.  There are many reasons for this. Both the family member lives too far and the resources to travel are not available; or sadly to say; many family members are neglected and forgotten about.  Luckily we’re here to deck the halls with boughs of Harmony.

We here at Harmony at 154th street celebrate all major holidays including Christmas.  We are your family away from family.  This past thanksgiving we had a pot luck dinner with some of our participants.  Needless to say the food was superb! Honestly my thanksgiving at Harmony was better than my own at home.  View the pictures below.  A few of our participants came to me personally and thanked me and Harmony for putting together this lunch the day after Thanksgiving because they themselves did not have family to spend thanksgiving with this year.  These testimonials have warmed our hearts, because we honestly go above and beyond to treat all of our participants like nothing less than family.

We love our participants because we know how different and unique they all are.  Here at Harmony at 154th all these characters from all walks of life come together in perfect Harmony.  Those without family nearby have found a family with us.  At the same time those with a loving caring family have entrusted our staff with the care of their loved ones. This is beneficial for the participant and for the care provider. It is beneficial for the participant, because they will enjoy a day full of activities that serve the purpose of stimulating the mind and body.  These activities include daily exercise, musical entertainment, bingo, chess, pool, and so much more.  We also provide warm nutritious meals for breakfast and lunch. This is beneficial for the care provider as well because while the loved one is at the center they can attend to other responsibilities, or just enjoy some respite from daily care responsibilities.

Join us this holiday season, and be part of more than just a center… be part of our family.  You can schedule your visit with us by calling 718-585-5440.  We are here Monday-Friday from 8:30am-5pm.  Call today!
