Sister Loreta Matila has joined Nazareth House of San Rafael, recently transferring from our Los Angeles House. Sister Loreta just celebrated her 25 year jubilee! Welcome Sister!
In combination with our residents, nutritional adviser, and a senior dining expert, we have enhanced the Nazareth House dining experience! Entree choices have increased, new recipes have been added, and service is more individualized. Old favorites like our homebaked scones, spaghetti bolognese, and spinach salads are of course still offered. We hear everyday: “The food is great!”. The Dinner Meal is served at noon. Guests and visitors are welcome, please call to arrange.
Residents at Nazareth House can choose to participate in a variety of planned activities, can pursue solitary hobbies, or can enjoy a pick-up card game or afternoon chat in one of the House living rooms. A daily calendar of events is available at breakfast or on CCTV to help in planning the day. August’s special outing will be a trip to the Bay Model. There is something for everyone at Nazareth House.
On Thursdays you will find our residents engaged in a drumming circle with Lior Tsarfaty, Bay Area musician. Rhythms, simple melodies and friendship fill one of the most well-loved hours of the week. http://www.villagesong.com.
Bocce League is back for the Spring at Nazareth House. Our 2/3 size court was a lovely donation from our Volunteer Auxiliary in 2005. Members of the Marin Bocce Federation and our Volunteers come to join our residents in fun competition on Friday mornings.
Sister Cecilia recently adopted a Bichon Frise puppy who immediately brought joy to the faces of the residents and staff of Nazareth House. What did she name her? JOY!
