News and Events
Two very important events highlighted our packed schedule for the month of November. The first event is the annual Walk to End Alzheimer's in downtown Jacksonville on Saturday, 11/7. Staff and residents will be leaving to participate in this important event around 8:30 AM.
The other highlight of November is our abundance of Thanksgiving activities! That Thursday residents will enjoy a hot chocolate social, the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade, and a special Thanksgiving lunch.
October was one of our busiest months at Bartram, with great activities like pumpkin carving, trick or treating, a harvest festival, and something fun every day. Highlights included Trick or Treating, a cooking Demonstration from the Food Network's Chef Bal, and a Haunted Happy Hour.
September marked a few major milestones for Bartram. Early in the month we were proud to announce that our Activities Staff were honored for their amazing work by being named a Brooks Celebrate the Team winner for 2015! We can't thank them enough for creating a highly engaging and caring community that provides support for our residents, patients, family and staff.
We also had a blast celebrating some very special birthdays. The Sass-N-Brass band provided us with fantastic music well we enjoyed some fantastic refreshments and fun. The highlight was an extra special birthday we celebrated with Frances, who turned 99 this year!
In August we said goodbye to summer in style. Our residents enjoyed a community luau that was full of great music, tasty food, and lots of Hawaiian shirts. CLICK HERE to see photos from the event.
We also helped support local students as they returned to school by "Stuffing the Bus". Our residents helped First Coast News collect a large amount of donated school supplies. A few of us even made a cameo appearance on the evening news!
