National Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) Week and More!

National Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) Week

Noble Horizons is proud to celebrate National Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) week, the theme for which is Kindness in Action. Every day, 24-hours a day, Noble's 55 CNAs give care with affection and compassion, dedication and commitment.  To honor their extraordinary contributions to life at Noble, we have been featuring their inspiring stories on our blog and we hope you will take a moment to meet these remarkable caregivers.   You will be touched by their generous spirits and deep love for those in their care.


Noble Horizons is proud to remain COVID free and is grateful for the exceptional teamwork that has made this possible. CT's phase two of reopening is now underway and on June 18, Governor Ned Lamont noted that "today's test results represent the lowest percentage of positive COVID-19 tests in Connecticut since the pandemic began...our state has been identified as one of only a handful in the nation to be trending better." We are encouraged by the improving trends and the opportunities to move about a bit more freely.

To that end, activities of all kinds are proliferating throughout Noble. Barbeque season is in full swing with grilling parties popping up around the campus. The Country Store continues to be open for a few hours several days a week where gifts for family remain the number one purchase.  Bocce, golf cart rides, and strolls amidst the spectacular spring flora have been popular, and next week, a llama visit and raised bed gardening will be among the highlights.

We would like to wish a HAPPY FATHER'S DAY to all Noble dads!  Thank you for your love, encouragement, wisdom, and support.

The Nature of America

Hamish Lutris' 4-week series on the Nature of America begins on Monday, June 22 at 11 am. The popular speaker will examine our unique form of government through the concepts of freedom, equality, the American Dream, and American ideals.

The classes meet weekly at 11 am on Mondays through July 13; topics include American liberty and how it has transformed since 1776; America's complex history of immigration; the nation's ongoing cycle of recessions and depressions; and the position of women throughout western history.  Please register for the Zoom link.

Yoga for EVERYONE!

Have you wanted to try yoga, but fear it is not for someone of your height, weight, age, gender, level of fitness, degree of flexibility, etc.?

You can enjoy a whole new yoga experience beginning Friday, June 26 at 10 am with Dr. Anita Haravon who uses her advanced yoga certifications and extensive healthcare background to teach chair yoga to folks of all sizes, limitations, and body types. She teaches at the Center for Spine Care and Mobility in Manhattan and is a certified EMT and volunteer with the Red Cross. This program is co-sponsored with the Hotchkiss Library in Sharon, CT.

Happy New Year! Like you, we were thrilled to see 2020 end and it was with extra exuberance that we welcomed 2021 with a New Year's Eve parade!  Accompanied by mimosas, residents cheered as staff members scattered bubbles and commemorated the opportunity for new beginnings.  We trust that you, too, were able to usher in hope and the possibility for better times ahead.

We're vaccinated!  The holiday season brought an extra-special gift to Noble Horizons residents and staff who on December 23 received their first of two COVID vaccinations!  Well over 100 vaccines were administered and nary a side effect was reported other than a few slightly sore arms.

The region's recent snowfall has created a magical panorama across Noble's campus. Views in every direction glisten in white and the Berkshire foothills are breathtaking.

Hope and relief abound at Noble in anticipation of Wednesday's administration of the COVID vaccine.  To learn more, please tune in to Bill Pond's Friday interview on the local NPR station.

The holiday season is in full swing and we hope that you are finding ways to enjoy your favorite traditions despite the unusual circumstances.  Festive activities spreading holiday cheer throughout Noble Horizons include tree-trimming, shopping (online!), gift wrapping, decorating and lots of music.
