NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- Recently the residents, family, friends and staff of Schaffer Extended Care Center (SECC), located on the campus of Sound Shore Medical Center in New Rochelle, enjoyed their 17th annual fashion show.
The staff of the Department of Recreation Therapy worked their magic and transformed the day room into a runway worthy of New York Fashion Week. Live music and a dynamic emcee added to the festive atmosphere for more than 50 guests. Many were tapping their feet to the music as they applauded the models and their outfits.
SECC residents and volunteer models chose one of their favorite outfits to showcase, which always provides an array of styles – from casual to ethnic, and everything in between. Broad smiles and loud applause greeted each participant as they made their way down the runway. The annual Fashion Show is greatly anticipated and was another successful event on the busy calendar at Schaffer Extended Care Center. It was often difficult to tell who was having the best time – the onlookers or the models.
Schaffer Extended Care Center offers the convenience of compassionate, respectful, community-based care for long term residents as well as short-term rehabilitation patients. Families will discover the caring that makes Schaffer a perfect choice when remaining at home is no longer possible.
