Chef Dan Cooking Demos

2021-12-30T15:01:51-05:00

Unique and engaging resident life is what we strive for at Redstone. Morrison, our Dining Services partner, ensures that residents feel the same way when it comes to their meals. Chef Dan is Morrison’s Executive Chef. He travels to each Redstone campus to demonstrate his wildly delicious recipes. Some months Chef Dan picks the super food, a nutrient-rich in-season item, and makes a meal of it. For example, October’s super food proved to be apples from Schramm’s in which Chef Dan baked into a delicious Autumn Apple Chicken. November’s spotlight was Mediterranean Shrimp and December showed Honey Mustard Walnut Crusted Salmon. [...]

Joe Rusinko ‘Goghs’ to Pittsburgh!

2021-12-16T10:41:22-05:00

Established in 2005, Redstone’s Wishing Well Program gives residents the chance to check an item off their bucket list. This program is funded kindly by donors who enjoy seeing the smiles our residents radiate as they experience their requests. Since its conception, we have granted so many wishes like a ride in the sidecar of a motorcycle, a GED test, and our most recent trip to Van Gogh’s Immersive Experience. North Huntingdon resident Joe Rusinko, age 76, was nominated to take his turn in making an everlasting memory, granted by our Wishing Well Team. His wish, made true on Friday, December [...]

Redstone Goes Trips and Tours: Cheese, Mud, & Memories

2021-12-03T11:51:55-05:00

Redstone Goes Trips and Tours has been happy to return to some travel adventures this fall.  Redstone’s trips and tours provide wonderful opportunities for residents, prospective residents, employees, and friends from the community to share fun experiences, with proceeds benefitting benevolent care at Redstone. In October, a group of 40 adventurers headed to Vermont to enjoy Autumn delights.  One of our afternoon excursions took us to the Crowley Cheese Factory, the oldest cheesemaking operation in production in the United States.  The rustic building, remote location, and delicious cheese tastings were fun.  As always, our excellent driver Jerry from Elite Coach attempted [...]

The Montessori Philosophy at Redstone

2021-10-28T15:23:17-05:00

Jim used to be the town mechanic. He was known for his speedy appointments and many different services. His skills made him the go-to-guy for all repairs. Jim loved working on cars, he loved finding solutions to problems that no one could solve. When Jim began to show signs of cognitive decline, his family worried about him living on his own. They started to look at care homes that would best suit Jim’s hobbies and lifestyle, somewhere he would be happy and feel at home. Jim’s family stressed the importance of memory care, as Jim had recently been diagnosed with Dementia. [...]

“Hope Grows at Redstone”

2021-10-04T15:53:01-05:00

Alex Chaffins, resident artist from Vandergrift, demonstrated his talent at the Greensburg campus. Chaffins is no rookie when it comes to murals. In fact, these large scale paintings are one of his specialties, Redstone's being the 12th completed. Prior to COVID, Redstone received a grant to be allocated to our Greensburg campus. The grant ensured that residents could enjoy an encouraging corner to celebrate their rehabilitation through physical therapy. Both volunteers and Redstone staff assisted Chaffins in coloring in the outline of the naturistic scene This mural differed slightly from Chaffin's usual process, adding this will only be his second mural [...]

Life at Redstone

2021-03-30T20:41:16-05:00

How do you capture a feeling, a spirit, the essence of moments lived with just mere words?  Working at Redstone for more than 18 years I’ve often wondered how best to capture the beauty of the many moments I’ve witnessed here.  Some might just call them the stuff that everyday lives are made up of, I call them sacred. The love, the joy, the laughter, the challenges, the heartbreak, experienced as a community, to me each is sacred. We’ve invited residents, family members, staff, volunteers, anyone who has a Redstone experience to help us capture the essence of Redstone by sharing their experiences [...]

Happy Birthday Dog

2021-03-30T20:45:14-05:00

Several years ago, a Redstone resident (a 90-year-old who still puts out a large garden from which he shares with his happy neighbors), received a birthday card from one of his grandchildren.  When opened, a dog in the card (with a hidden battery) very cleverly barks the traditional “Happy Birthday” song.  The resident enjoys the card so much that he keeps it and opens it for the dog to bark “Happy Birthday” every time one of his neighbors or friends has a birthday.  Everyone has come to expect the serenade, and everyone loves it. If you have an experience you’d like to share, please [...]

The Vegetable Men

2021-03-30T20:40:48-05:00

A small group of male Redstone residents participate in a weekly prayer breakfast at a local church.  Another Redstone resident operates a food pantry that occasionally has excess fresh produce.  The guys in the prayer group take the extra produce for distribution at the church’s food pantry.  The motto: “Nothing goes to waste.” If you have an experience you’d like to share, please contact me at ldickson@redstone.org. Linda Dickson is the Director of Community Relations at Redstone
