Kittay House Celebrates Bronx Week
The Kittay Community Choir composed a song about the “da boogey-down” borough of the Bronx. This song was performed not just for, but with, the Bronx Borough President. The members of the choir awarded him with the title of first Honorary Member of the Kittay House Community Choir.
The event also served as thanks to the Bronx Borough President for providing funds for a state-of–the-art security system at Kittay House Senior Apartments.
Tenants are now provided with Personal Emergency Response System Safety Pendants. These pendants (familiar to many as the “I’ve fallen and can’t get up” device) link to a streamlined security system. With a push of a button, the immediate response provides peace-of-mind for tenants, as well as for their family and friends.
“These pendants are a Godsend! I knew Mom would love the active lifestyle when she moved into Kittay House and now I’m given the peace of mind of knowing that no matter when or where she is, she’s under a watchful eye, while maintaining her independence.” – Bob Rubin, son of Kittay tenant Edith Rubin.
On May 20, Kittay House unveiled its new Bronx Wall of Fame commemorating people and places in the Bronx. The wall features a 50 x 65 inch Bronx Historical Society quilt map of the Bronx. Tenants added their own photographs and memories to the wall in the days following this year’s Bronx Week celebration.
