The Palace at Weston Memory Care seeks innovative ways to engage their residents and uses outdoor activities and social engagement to spark joy. Social Director Justin Valdes formed the community’s first-ever baseball team and made community history with a T-ball game at Weston Regional Park for their team, “The Palace at Weston Rockets.”
Family and friends greeted their loved ones with cheers who arrived at the park by community shuttle buses as the Cypress Bay High School Marching Band played the American classic, “Take Me Out of the Ball Game.” While residents took turns at bat, Billy the Marlin and Miami Marlin Mermaids were on hand to cheer them on. It was amazing to see how much the residents were filled with life when it was their turn to hit. After each turn, residents joined their families and enjoyed hot dogs and hamburgers provided by The Palace’s culinary team.
The families were ecstatic seeing their loved ones participate in an awesome event that will forever live in the hearts of those who came out to the Sunday ball game.
