SHELTON - The vaudeville act, “Make ‘Em Laugh & Sing,” from Manchester, Mass. recently visited Crosby Commons Assisted Living community in Shelton as part of the Journey of Dreams program at the assisted living community on the Wesley Village campus.
The vaudeville team fulfilled a life-long wish for Crosby Commons’ resident Bob Shields, of being part of a vaudeville act.
Shields thoroughly enjoyed the knee-slapping humor and one-liners from a talented family of vaudevillians, Elaine and Robert Jacobs, Stephen Vrattos, and Thankful Bert.
The Journey of Dreams program invites residents living on the Wesley Village campus (Bishop Wicke Health and Rehabilitation Center, and Crosby Commons and Wesley Heights independent and assisted living communities) to write down their personal wishes, goals, or desires.
Staff enlists the assistance of family, friends, and volunteers to make each resident's dream become a reality.
Regardless of the types of wishes, the emphasis is on helping residents continue to achieve their goals, no matter where they are on life’s journey.
