Halloween 2013

Rainy days will not keep away the Halloween Party at The Rockwood.

The Rockwood Residents Riding Camels and Carousels – what?!

Residents of The Rockwood Senior Community in St. Louis recently visited Grant’s Farm.

“What I thought would be a nice, relaxing day for my Residents turned out to be a wild ride for some of them! I thought they would ride the tram, relax in the bauernhof and see the Clydesdale horses,  but no, they had other ideas!”   joked Executive Director, Mary Dalba.

Grant’s Farm is not just for the young anymore, seniors can also have a wonderful time!  New rides  that drew attention was the carousel and the camel ride!  How the ladies loved them! See pictures below.

We are so lucky to have these wonderful attractions in our backyard. St. Louis and The Rockwood are wonderful places to live!

Alice the Thinking Dog Entertains The Rockwood Senior Living Community in Webster Groves

Alice and her Human, Beldin Hare, entertained the crowd at The Rockwood Senior Living in Webster Groves recently.

Alice gave her usual amazing entertaining performance but her human companion needs a little more training!! All kidding aside, the pair are quite entertaining and provide alot of comedy while donating their money to charities around St. Louis.

Alice performs at the piano, bowling, jumping through hoops and over hurdles and running through tunnels.  She is adorable!

Alice and Beldin are one of our most attended activities we have here at The Rockwood.  They have been visiting us for the past three years!
