Halloween Events Creating Community Across the State

It has been a busy few weeks at Brio Living Services, with several of our communities and locations enjoying Halloween in their own special ways.

Thome PACE participated in Jackson County Parks’ annual Trunk or Treat event, taking away the “Best Decorated Trunk” award with their Flintstones theme! Our Huron Valley PACE friends hosted their own annual Trunk or Treat event, inviting participants, team members, family members, and community members to enjoy the creative trunks and comradery. The “Best Decorated Trunk” award went to the Dr. Almeda’s Family (Medical Director at Huron Valley PACE) and their Cookie Monster themed trunk. From spooky trunks to light-hearted and fun, there was no lack of creativity with these trunks!

Jade Clark, Community Relations Director at Thome Pace says, “The Trunk or Treat is a lot of fun, and we look forward to it every year! It’s a great opportunity for our team members to be present in the community together. We love the costumes and families having a great time, while bringing more awareness of services and support that PACE programs offer.”

Many other Brio locations, including The Cedars of Dexter, Chelsea Retirement Community, Meadowlark Retirement Village, and Porter Hills Village, hosted Trick or Treat events on their campuses. Residents were especially thrilled to hand out candy and see grandchildren, friends, and visitors in costume! These events also offer a safe and trusted environment for children and families to enjoy trick or treating. Team members also had the opportunity to dress up and join in the fun.

Gail Reyer, Community Manager at The Cedars of Dexter says, “We love these opportunities that showcase what it really means to live in a Brio Living Services retirement community, that we are lively and our residents are thrilled to live here!”

Halloween isn’t just about candy and costumes at Brio Living Services. To team members, residents, participants, and elders, it represents something much deeper than that; a chance to feel connected to one another and the communities we live in and serve.
