In support from the BTCC — Bigelow Tea Community Challenge, Grasmere by the Sea recently received a $7k donation that will go toward providing valuable services to seniors in our community. The Bigelow Tea event has been an annual supporter since the facility’s opening in 2009.

Cindi Bigelow, third generation President & CEO of Bigelow Tea and Bob Hendrick, Vice President of Corporate Responsibility, visited Grasmere by the Sea to meet with Director Danielle Jackson and spend time at the adult day care center where members from Fairfield and Bridgeport shared stories about how much Grasmere means to them.

“Our seniors are such an important and valuable asset to our community,” says Bigelow.  “They worked a lifetime building the community we all know and enjoy today, so warm and caring Centers like this that provide for their well being are a great way for all of us to give back.”

Non-sectarian Grasmere by the Sea offers different levels of nursing services, rehabilitative therapies, care management, therapeutic recreation, socialization, and interactive programs five days a week for up to 57 seniors.  In addition to providing socially-stimulating services like fellowship, the facility offers hot lunches and age-appropriate exercise programs such as chair yoga.  Weekly entertainment, trips to the Bigelow Center for Senior Activities and movies are also provided.
