Turning seemingly small moments into experiences of a lifetime — that’s what life with us is all about. And that’s exactly what we did for Betty from StoryPoint Troy!
All her life, Betty loved to travel. But as she reached her 91st birthday, she worried that her traveling days were behind her. StoryPoint’s Life Enrichment team member, Erin, joked with Betty that she would take her to New York, her dream destination, if Betty took her to Nashville for her 21st birthday.
After the community did a virtual trip to Nashville, Erin considered Betty’s end of the bargain complete. That’s when the StoryPoint team started planning to make Betty’s travel dream a reality!
After surprising Betty with the news (and sharing a few happy tears!), the gang headed to New York. Here’s a closer look at their trip.
Betty and Erin arrived! The trip started by exploring Times Square and enjoying some New York hot dogs.
A trip to Mia’s Bakery in Times Square, thoughtful remembrance at the 9/11 Memorial and dinner at Junior’s — that would have been a great day. What made day two of their trip truly something special was the matching tattoos they got of “The Big Apple!”
This day was filled with music! Betty and Erin shared breakfast at Ellen’s Stardust Diner where aspiring Broadway actors sing while they serve you. Next, they headed to dinner and to see Wicked the Musical.
